Maryland baseball infielder Matt Shaw was named to the Perfect Game Freshman All-American second team. The second baseman was a standout for the Terps all season as they advanced to their first NCAA Tournament regional since 2017.

Shaw led Maryland and all-Big Ten freshman in batting average, posting a .332 mark. He also led the team in doubles and hits in his debut collegiate season. Defensively, Shaw was remarkable in the infield, making big plays at second base.

This is the Brimfield, Massachusetts native's second All-American award. On June 9, Shaw was named to the Collegiate Baseball Freshman All-American team.

“Matt Shaw’s a special freshman,” head coach Rob Vaughn said earlier in the season. “He loves to work. He loves getting out here. He loves putting the time in and the dudes a winner.”

After one of the best seasons in recent memory for Maryland baseball, the individual accolades continue to pile on. Last week, shortstop Benjamin Cowles was named to the All-American Third Team by Baseball America.

The Terps finished second in the Big Ten and advanced to the Greenville Regional final before falling short to East Carolina.
