Clemson, SC -

Kyle Parker was named a first-team freshman All-American by Baseball America on Monday. Parker, listed as the first-team designated hitter, joined Miami (FL) lefthander Chris Hernandez as the only two ACC players to make the first team.

The Jacksonville, FL native and Tiger quarterback hit .303 with 12 doubles, 14 homers, 50 RBIs, and a .400 on-base percentage in 57 games in 2008. Parker, who led the team in home runs, also batted .336 with 10 homers and 34 RBIs in 29 ACC regular-season games. He tied for second in the ACC in homers and was second in RBIs in ACC regular-season contests.

Parker was the first Tiger to receive freshman All-America accolades since 2005, when Brad Chalk and Taylor Harbin were honored. Parker was also named a freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball.
