Arizona’s Cameron Cannon has been named a first-team All-American by Baseball America, the first Wildcat to be so honored since 2015.
Cannon, who made the team as a second baseman, batted .397 with a nation-high 29 doubles. He also had eight home runs, 56 RBIs and a .478 on-base percentage.
Cannon was selected in the second round of the MLB draft by the Boston Red Sox last week. The last UA player to earn first-team recognition from BA was another second-rounder, Scott Kingery.
Tucson product Nick Gonzales made the second team. The Cienega High School graduate hit .432 with 16 homers and 80 RBIs as a sophomore for New Mexico State.
