South Carolina freshman pitcher Braden Webb was named a first-team Freshman All-American by Baseball America on Monday.
The Oklahoma native was drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers in the third round of the MLB draft with the No. 82 overall pick earlier this month. He has already signed with the Brewers for a reported amount of $700,000.
Webb was exceptional during his one season in Columbia, finishing with a 10-6 record and a 3.09 ERA.
He struck out 128 batters in 102 innings pitched and opponents hit only .216 against him.
Never miss a local story.
Webb was also honored as a Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball and the NCBWA. The NCBWA named Webb its Freshman Pitcher of the Year.
