Georgia Tech sophomore first baseman Tristin English has been named a mid season All-American by multiple outlets.
Tristin English has left quite the re-impression on the college baseball world in his first half season back after missing all of last season due to Tommy John surgery. Though the first impression he laid on the college baseball world back in 2016 wasn’t too bad in his own right. The former Freshman All-American hit .315 in his freshman season with five home runs and 44 RBI over 60 games.
This season, English has played in 27 games for the Yellow Jackets, most of them coming at first base. That being said, he has made eight appearances on the mound this season for the Yellow Jackets.
At the plate this season, Engish has been great hitting .342/.379/.556 with five home runs and 39 RBI. He’s also collected eight doubles and one triple this season. In the field, English has had 152 chances, 139 putouts, and 13 assists. He has yet to commit an error after committing six in his freshman season. English’s season is impressive beyond the basic box score as he has 13 multi hit games including two four-hit games this season. He also once had a nine-game hitting streak this spring.
English and the Yellow Jackets return to the diamond on Friday evening to take on the sixth ranked Florida State Seminoles. The Jackets sitting at 17-12 are in need of a series victory this weekend against the Seminoles in hopes of staying in the ACC Coastal race. The Jackets are currently three-games behind the Duke Blue Devils who take on Wake Forest this weekend.
