Maryland baseball fifth-year outfielder Chris “Bubba” Alleyne received Collegiate Baseball First Team All-American honors, the publication announced Thursday.
The honors continue to roll in for Alleyne, who was named the Big Ten Player of the Year and a semifinalist for the Golden Spikes Award — which honors the nation’s best amateur baseball player — just 10 days ago.
Alleyne, who opted to return to Maryland for his fifth year of eligibility instead of turning pro, has reaped the benefits of his decision. Appearing in all 57 of Maryland’s games, Alleyne exploded for 22 home runs and 75 RBIs, both Big Ten-leading marks. Alleyne also posted an incredible .346 batting average, a 1.131 OPS and 23 stolen bases. The veteran superstar became the first Division I player since 2018 to join the 20/20 club (20 home runs, 20 stolen bases).
The Philadelphia product looks to turn his strong play into a successful postseason for the Terps. Named the No. 15 overall seed and the host of the College Park Regional, Maryland —the Big Ten regular season champs — will host a regional at Bob “Turtle” Smith Stadium for the first time in program history. The Terps begin their national postseason run against Long Island at 7 p.m. tonight.
