Tyler Keenan Earns Third Freshman All-American Honor
July 9, 2018

SPRING, Texas – Ole Miss baseball third baseman Tyler Keenan was selected as a second-team Freshman All-American by D1Baseball last week, his third All-American honor of the season.

Keenan’s first year has come with a litany of honors, including Freshman All-American nods from Perfect Game and Collegiate Baseball. The third baseman out of Clayton, North Carolina, was the only freshman in the Southeastern Conference to be named Player of the Week. He also brought home two SEC Freshman of the Week awards and is the first Ole Miss freshman to win Player of the Week since Alex Presley in 2004.

Keenan finished the season with a .301 batting average over 54 games and 50 starts. He tallied 11 doubles and nine home runs, driving in 38 runs and scoring 35. His .520 slugging percentage was the third-best on the Rebel roster, and his .911 OPS was fourth on the team.

The 6-foot-3, 235-pound freshman was particularly proficient in SEC play, where he hit .326 with a team-best six home runs and 24 RBI. He added eight doubles and slugged .600 in league competition with an OPS over 1.000.

After earning the starting role at the hot corner, Keenan was fantastic defensively, making just five errors all year as well as a number of outstanding plays in one of the toughest positions on the diamond.
