Three Maryland baseball players were awarded All-American honors this week.

Junior shortstop Matt Shaw was named to the All-America first team by both Baseball America and D1Baseball, the only Terp to earn a spot on either publication’s first team. Shaw put up an impressive stat line as a junior this season, posting a .341 batting average and a 1.142 OPS. He also earned the 2023 Big Ten Player of the Year award and is widely expected to be a first-round selection in July’s MLB draft.

Junior catcher Luke Shliger and senior third baseman Nick Lorusso were named to the second team by both outlets. The two also turned in massive years offensively, combining for 157 runs batted in and 37 home runs. Lorusso finished the year tied with LSU’s Tommy White for the national lead in RBIs (105), while Shliger led the nation in runs (93).
