Pair of Hurricanes Pick Up ABCA/Rawlings All-America Distinction

CORAL GABLES, Fla. — University of Miami juniors Andrew Walters and Yohandy Morales claimed All-America honors for the second straight day, as the duo received recognition from the ABCA/Rawlings Friday.

Walters garnered first-team distinction, while Morales collected third-team acclaim.

One of just two relievers to be named to the top team, Walters picked up his fourth All-America accolade this month.

A 6-foot-4, 222-pound right-handed pitcher, Walters recorded a career-low 1.21 ERA and a co-ACC-high-12 saves.

The Palm Bay, Fla., native totaled a 10.3 strike-out-to-walk ratio, punching out 72 batters and issuing only seven free passes across 44 2/3 innings.

Following one of the greatest campaigns in program history, Morales was bestowed his second career All-America distinction.

The third baseman led the Hurricanes in nine offensive categories: average (.408), hits (98), home runs (20), RBI (70), at-bats (240), total bases (171), on-base percentage (.475), slugging percentage (.713) and OPS (1.187).

A Miami native, Morales finished with the sixth-most hits, seventh-best average, eight-highest slugging percentage and tied for 10th in homers in a single season in program history.
