ARLINGTON, VA - Clemson sophomore Jeff Baker has been selected as a
second team All-American at third base by Baseball Weekly for the
2001 season. The All-American honor is the second for Baker this
season and the third for the Tigers this year. He was named a first
team Louisville Slugger NCAA Division I All-American by the staff at
Collegiate Baseball while teammate Steve Reba was named to the third

Baker, a first team All-ACC selection this year, has had a
record-setting season from the plate after being named a first-team
Freshman All-American as a designated hitter last year. He leads the
ACC with 23 home runs this season and needs just one more to tie
Clemson's single-season record. He has 34 home runs through his
first two seasons, the most of any Tiger after two years. Baker, who
hails from Woodbridge, VA, has homered twice in a game five times
this season and seven times in his career, both new school standards.
He also ranks in the top seven in the ACC and leads the Tigers in
RBIs (73), slugging percentage (.758), on base percentage (.474) and
