3 U Alum Make 1st Team All ACC

In what is considered one of the top 3 baseball conferences in the country three Baseball U alumni were selected to the All ACC 1st team.


Junior outfielder / first baseman Mike Papi who was named 1st Team All American last year repeats with the honor of being named to the 1st Team All ACC. Papi was a member of the 5th place Baseball U team at the PG WWBA National Championships. Papi is expected to be a high selection in the 2014 MLB draft this June. Papi has helped UVA to several weeks atop the DI polls this season.


Sophomore outfielder Joe McCarthy and teammate of Papi was selected to the 1st team as well. McCarthy last year was named ACC Rookie of the Year and again had an outstanding season for UVA. McCarthy was a member of the 3rd place team at the PG WWBA National Championships. Joe's younger brother Jake (2015) is also a member of the Baseball U 2015U team this year and he too has committed to UVA.


Sophomore outfielder Chris Shaw was named to the 1st Team All ACC and had an outstanding second half of the year for Boston College. Shaw has raw light tower potential at the plate and was a teammate with Joe McCarthy on the PG WWBA 3rd place team.


Baseball U is proud of these three young men and more importantly because of their success futher paves the way for current and future Baseball U players because of their accolades.
