Bart Picks Up Another All-America Honor

2018 ABCA/Rawlings NCAA Div. 1 All-America Teams

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech junior Joey Bart added another all-America honor on Saturday, earning a spot on the 2018 ABCA/Rawlings all-America first team released by the American Baseball Coaches Association and Rawlings Sporting Goods.

The ABCA/Rawlings all-America honor adds to his previous national honors which includes 2018 Perfect Game/Rawlings first team all-America, NCBWA first-team all-America, Baseball America first-team all-America, Collegiate Baseball first-team all-America and D1Baseball all-America second team.

The 2018 Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Player of the Year, ACC Defensive Player of the Year and a first-team all-ACC selection, Bart finished the regular season leading the ACC in hitting with a .359 average overall. He also closed out his season tops on the team and ranked second in the league in slugging percentage (.632) and hits (79), while also posting a team-high in home runs (16), runs scored (55) and on-base percentage (.471), which all ranked in the top 10 in the ACC.

The Buford, Ga. native posted a season-high 16-game hitting streak, the longest of the year for a Yellow Jacket player, and totaled 24 multi-hit games on the season overall, which included a pair of multi-home run games.

Bart was also named to the ABCA/Rawlings Atlantic all-region first team earlier this month.
