Collegiate Baseball Release

VESTAL, N.Y. -- Binghamton baseball player Mike Thompson has been named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American, as chosen by Collegiate Baseball. Thompson becomes the third BU player chosen for the national rookie honor, joining Dave Ciocchi (2009) and Henry Dunn (2007). Thompson was one of 11 freshmen third basemen honored.

"I'm extremely happy for Mike to have earned this honor," 18th-year head coach Tim Sinicki said. "It's a true testament to the hard work he put in during the course of his freshman season. We expect Mike to be an integral part of our program during his time here as a Bearcat."

Thompson earned second team America East all-star honors after hitting .365 with 19 RBI in 20 starts. He took over the starting role at third base at the start of conference play and was one of BU's best hitters the rest of the way. Thompson batted .435 against America East opponents with a .783 slugging percentage and .519 on-base percentage. He produced 10 multi-hit games.

The Bearcats, winners of four straight America East regular season titles, won a school-record 31 games in 2010. The program has increased its win total in an NCAA-record seven straight seasons.
