Baylor baseball’s Kyle Hill and Davis Wendzel have been selected as All-Americans by Collegiate Baseball, with Hill making the first team and Wendzel the third team.
Hill is the first Baylor player to earn Collegiate Baseball first-team All-America honors since catcher Kelly Shoppach in 2001, and the first BU player to be a first teamer by any publication since Josh Ludy was honored by Baseball America in 2012.
Hill has a 6-0 record with a 0.00 ERA and seven saves on the year.
Wendzel led the Big 12 with a .377 batting average, while adding eight home runs, 17 doubles and 39 RBIs. The third baseman is expected to be a high draft pick in the MLB Draft, which starts Monday.
Baylor A&T bringing back Cowan
A former Baylor acrobatics and tumbling All-American is returning to the program as an assistant coach.
Baylor announced the hiring of Kaelyn Cowan on Friday. The former Midway and BU standout has spent the past two years as the head A&T coach at Limestone College in Gaffney, S.C., helping the Saints to a 6-2 record in their inaugural season of action this year.
“I am so excited to be a Baylor Bear again, and to have the opportunity to coach at the place I have always called home,” Cowan said.
She was a two-time NCATA All-American at BU in 2016 and ’17, and helped the Bears win three straight national titles in her final three years on campus.
