Five Yellow Jackets Earn All-ACC Selections

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Junior outfielder Stephen Reid was named first-team all-ACC, leading Georgia Tech baseball’s five overall all-ACC selections, the conference announced on Monday.

In addition to Reid, Jake DeLeo, Angelo Dispigna and Jackson Finley were named to the second team, while Kristian Campbell was named to the all-ACC third team as well as the all-freshman list. Georgia Tech’s five selections rank fourth in the ACC behind Wake Forest (9), Miami and Virginia (7).

The all-conference teams and annual awards are voted on by the league’s head coaches.

Turning in the best year of his career, Reid has been on fire at the plate and in the field, making all 55 starts in right field. Reid has hit .353 this season for 77 hits, 13 doubles, two triples and 15 home runs, while slugging .638 with an on-base percentage of .436. In the ACC, he ranks 15th in average and 10th in hits and home runs. The Garwood, N.J. native ratcheted up the power hitting even more so in ACC play, hitting .375 against conference foes, including nine home runs to slug .714 with a .467 on-base percentage.

Also having a career year now that he’s been fully healthy, DeLeo has been one of the ACC’s best centerfielders. Starting in all 55 games, DeLeo has hit .365 for 88 hits, 22 doubles, two triples and 14 home runs, slugging .647 and reaching base at a .427 clip. The Norwalk, Conn. native has also stolen eight bases on the field and recorded four outfield assists. Nationally, DeLeo ranks 12th and 17th in hits and total bases (156), respectively, but in the ACC, he also ranks top 15 in doubles (third), average (10th), runs (10th) and slugging (12th).

In just his first season on The Flats, transfer outfielder Dispigna has been a veteran presence at the plate and in left field for Tech this season. Starting all 55 games this season, Dispigna leads the team with a .390 average, recording 83 hits, 12 doubles and 15 home runs for 57 RBI. He’s slugged .657 and with a whopping 46 walks drawn, he’s reaching base at a .508 rate. He also has seven stolen bases on the year. The Lawrenceville, Ga. native ranks top 10 in a myriad of ACC categories – third in on-base percentage, fifth in hits, sixth in total bases, eighth in walks, eighth in RBI, 10th in home runs, and 10th in slugging percentage.

Finley was named all-ACC as a utility/designated hitter, being named earlier this season a semifinalist to the John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year Award. At the plate, Finley has been a menace, hitting .330 overall for 63 hits, 17 doubles and a team-best 17 home runs for 61 RBI. Tech’s Sunday starter for the season, the Richmond Hill, Ga. native has worked to a 5.96 ERA, with two wins and 42 strikeouts. In the ACC, Finley ranks third in RBI, sixth in home runs, seventh in slugging percentage (.686), and eighth in doubles.

In his first season of action, redshirt freshman Campbell has shown his incredible bat-to-ball talent as Tech’s leadoff hitter, hitting .382 for 63 hits, 15 doubles, one triple, four home runs and 24 RBI. Drawing 29 walks and 11 hit-by-pitches with just 16 strikeouts in 165 at-bats, he’s reaching base at a .493 clip. In conference play alone, Campbell is hitting a gaudy .388 with 45 hits, 10 doubles and two home runs, drawing 19 walks, five HBP and striking out just 13 times in 116 at-bats for a .493 on-base percentage. In the ACC, the Marietta, Ga. native ranks as the second-toughest to strike out at 10.3 at-bats per strikeout, as well as fourth in on-base percentage, sixth in average, eighth in runs per game and hits per game, and ninth in doubles per game.
