A-State Baseball Earns Academic Excellence Award

July 28, 2020

JONESBORO, Ark. (6/28/20) – After registering a respectable 3.36 GPA for the 19-20 academic year, the Arkansas State baseball team claimed one of the American Baseball Coaches Association Team Academic Excellence awards, announced by the ABCA Tuesday.
 
The Red Wolves were one of 420 programs from all levels of collegiate baseball and high school baseball to earn an award. A-State was just one of 63 Division I teams to be honored and is the only DI program in the state to receive this award. 
 
Arkansas State, along with Georgia Southern and Louisiana were the only Sun Belt schools to claim this honor.
 
The American Baseball Coaches Association has a long tradition of recognizing the achievements of baseball coaches and student-athletes. The ABCA/Rawlings All-America Teams are the nation’s oldest, founded in 1949, and the ABCA’s awards program also includes the ABCA/Rawlings All-Region Awards, the ABCA/Diamond Regional & National Coaches of the Year and several other major awards such as the ABCA Hall of Fame and the Ethics in Coaching Award.
 
Teams from every level of college and high school baseball were honored with the award, which recognizes teams coached by ABCA members that posted a GPA of over 3.0 on a 4.0 scale for the 2019-20 academic year.
