ACC Announces 2004 All-ACC Baseball Team SALEM, VA. - The Atlantic Coast Conference announced the All-ACC Baseball teams as well as the individual honorees for the 2004 baseball season Monday evening at the awards cookout at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Va. As selected by a vote of the league's nine head coaches, first-year head coach Brian O'Connor of Virginia was honored as Coach of the Year. The Cavaliers Joe Koshansky and Daniel Bard of North Carolina were named the Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year, respectively. In selecting the first and second All-ACC teams, Georgia Tech led all schools with six student-athletes. Florida State and North Carolina each placed a total of five members on the All-Conference teams, with Clemson, NC State and Virginia with four a piece. Duke and Maryland each tallied two All-ACC members, followed by Wake Forest with one.

O'Connor led Virginia to one of the finest seasons in team history finishing the regular season with a record of 42-11 and 18-6 in conference play, good for second place overall in the ACC. He becomes only the second Cavalier coach to win the honor and first since Dennis Womack won in 1985. The first-year head coach saw his Cavalier team rattle off a season-high 14 consecutive wins during the middle part of the year as well as guiding them to ten victories over ranked opponents. Under the tutelage of O'Connor, Virginia achieved their highest-ever national ranking of seventh twice in 2004, according to Collegiate Baseball. Koshansky became the first Virginia baseball player to be named Player of the Year. He was a three-time ACC Player/Pitcher of the Week selection in 2004. He was fourth in the league in ERA at 2.78 holding opposing hitters to a .217 batting average. Koshansky totaled 90.2 innings on the mound while posting a 7-2 record. At the plate, Koshansky tallied 15 home runs and a slugging percentage of .613 which ranked sixth overall in the ACC. Bard was named the ACC Freshman of the Year becoming the third Tar Heel in conference history to win the award. Bard started 13 games for UNC on the mound going 8-3 during that span including one complete game. He ranked seventh in the conference with an ERA of 3.27.
