Collegiate Baseball 2020 All-Americans

The Collegiate Baseball NCAA Division I All-American baseball teams and National Player of The Year, powered by Diamond Sports, were announced.

The 17-man first team was picked by the staff of Collegiate Baseball.

It reflects all games played before the season was stopped in mid-March because of the coronavirus pandemic. The vast majority of teams in NCAA Division I played 15-19 games before the season was shut down.

The 6-man starting pitching staff posted a cumulative 0.80 ERA with a better than 10:1 strikeout to walk ratio (249 strikeouts and 24 walks).

RHP Landon Knack of East Tennessee St. posted 51 strikeouts with only one walk in 25 innings of work to lead the way as he posted a 4-0 record.

The first team relief pitcher was Jeff Hakanson of Central Florida. In 8 1/3 innings of work he put up incredible numbers. He posted 6 saves and had a 0.00 ERA. He only allowed one hit and struck out 20 with one walk.

Shortstop Nick Gonzales of New Mexico St. is Collegiate Baseball’s National Player of The Year (.448, 12 HR, 3 2B, 36 RBI, 21 walks – 10 intentional).

He finished the season ranked in the top five in the nation in 10 categories: home runs (1st), home runs per game (3rd), runs (1st), runs batted in (1st), runs batted in per game (1st), total bases (1st), slugging percentage (2nd), on-base percentage (3rd), walks (4th) and walks per game (5th).

Gonzales hit five home runs in a single day against Purdue Fort Wayne on Feb. 29 as he hit two in game one of a doubleheader before belting three more in the nightcap, including an inside-the-park grand slam.

At one point, he hit 12 home runs in only 48 at-bats over 13 games and was on pace to hit 50 homers.

When the season was suspended, he had a national best on-base streak of 82 consecutive games.

The following are the first, second and third team Collegiate Baseball All-Americans for 2020.
