by -

CLEMSON, S.C. - Outfielder Seth Beer (Suwanee, Ga.) was named national freshman-of-the-year by Baseball America on Monday. Beer became Clemson's first national freshman-of-the-year after hitting .369 with 18 homers, 13 doubles, 70 RBIs, 57 runs, 62 walks, 15 hit-by-pitches, a .535 on-base percentage and six outfield assists in 62 games in 2016. He also had a .700 slugging percentage, the best mark by a Tiger since 2002.

Beer had a standout season under head coach Monte Lee in what should have been his senior year at Lambert High School. After enrolling at Clemson in January, he posted remarkable numbers that earned him the Dick Howser Trophy and ACC Player-of-the-Year honors, a first for both by a freshman.
