OXFORD, Miss. –Andrew Mistone, Stuart Turner and Bobby Wahl were tabbed for All-SEC honors by a vote of the league’s coaches, the Southeastern Conference announced its annual postseason awards on Tuesday.
Turner was named an All-SEC First Team and Defensive Team selection, while Mistone and Wahl were named All-SEC Second Team selections. Senior right-hander Tanner Bailey was also honored recently with selection to the SEC Community Service Team.
The top hitter on the Rebels team and one of the tops in the Southeastern Conference this season, Turner is hitting at a .381 clip this season to lead the Rebels and has posted a team-leading 50 RBI and has scored 44 runs this season. He also tallied 15 doubles and five home runs on the way to snagging the first team honors. His .381 average is second in the SEC behind Player of the Year selection Tony Kemp from Vanderbilt.
Defensively, Turner has thrown out 21-of-41 runners on steal attempts, gunning them down at a 51 percent clip to earn a spot on the All-SEC Defensive Team.
Mistone earned a spot on the All-SEC Second Team, sharing the third base selection with Georgia’s Curt Powell, after hitting .316 on the season with 12 doubles, a triple, 34 RBI and 33 runs scored this season. Mistone finished hot at the plate in conference play, hitting at a .330 clip with 15 RBI and 18 runs scored to help pace the Rebels down the stretch.
Wahl finished the season as one of the top pitchers in the league with an unblemished 9-0 mark on the season and only left the game once in 15 starts with his team trailing this season. The junior right-hander turned in three combined shutouts and a complete-game shutout of Tennessee. His three combined shutouts all came against nationally-ranked foes, and Wahl turned in a 1.14 ERA in eight outings against nationally-ranked competition this season with a 4-0 record in those appearances.
Senior right-hander Tanner Bailey was also honored by the Southeastern Conference with selection to the SEC Community Service team this season. He was one of 12 members on the team and represented Ole Miss for his efforts in the local community.
Bailey has been active in community outreach at Ole Miss. The senior participates regularly in the Reading With The Rebels program while also participating in the SEC Canned Food Drive. Bailey also works with various youth baseball clinics and makes visits to St. Jude Children’s Hospital and volunteered at the Briarwood Nursing and Rehabilitation Summer Center entertaining and visiting with residents.
