WASHINGTON - Former Georgetown University shortstop Mike Garza (San Antonio, Texas/Douglas MacArthur) was named to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings All-East Region First Team today.
Garza, who recently signed a professional contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, is now eligible for ABCA All-American honors, which are voted on at the College World Series this week.
A redshirt junior, Garza was an All-BIG EAST First Team selection this year and was selected in the 20th round of the Major League Baseball Draft by the Brewers.
A preseason All-BIG EAST selection, Garza finished the season batting .393, which led the Hoyas and ranked second in the BIG EAST. He led the team in hits (86), at-bats (219), doubles (21), home runs (8), runs batted in (44) and total bases (135). In addition, he was second in the BIG EAST in slugging percentage (.616) and ninth in the league in on-base percentage (.433).
Garza had four hits in a 15-4 win over Cincinnati in the regular season finale, giving him 86 for the season and tying the single season school record for hits set by Kurt Kaull in 1983. His 135 total bases were four shy of the school record of 139, set by Kaull in 1983 as well.
Garza and the Hoyas finished the 2012 season with a 24-29 overall record and a 10-17 mark in the BIG EAST. Georgetown tied for eighth place in the league and missed out on an appearance in the BIG EAST Tournament by percentage points. The team's 24 overall wins and 10 league wins were the most for the program since 2006.
