TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - Add another accolade to what is already an impressive resume in his first collegiate season as Sean Gilmartin was named a first team Freshman All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA).
A total of 37 standout freshmen college baseball players from every part of the country are featured on this year's team. The 2009 Pro-Line Athletic NCBWA Freshman All-American Team is comprised from 17 conferences and 10 conference championship teams. The two All-American squads are also made up of 12 conference "Rookie of the Year" winners.
Gilmartin finished his freshman campaign with a 12-3 record and a 3.49 ERA posting 83 strikeouts in 98 innings of work. He made 15 starts and three relief appearances in 2009 while picking up a save. Earlier this year, Gilmartin was honored as a third team All-American and a Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball. He is just the second Seminole this decade to be named an All-American as a freshman, joining Stephen Drew in 2002.
The Moorpark, Calif., native became the Seminoles' Friday night starter just three weeks into the season. He currently leads the ACC in wins and ranks in the top 10 in complete games (t-1st), opponents batting average (3rd), innings pitched (t-2nd) and ERA (6th). Gilmartin became just the second freshman in school history to earn first team All-ACC accolades.
In the NCAA Tallahassee Regional, Gilmartin threw all nine innings against the Georgia Bulldogs for his second complete game of the season and first covering all nine innings. The freshman southpaw limited the Georgia offense to just two runs on five hits, a day after the Bulldogs scored 24 runs on 23 hits against Ohio State in the first game of the Tallahassee Regional. He showed great command of his pitches against the Bulldogs getting ahead in the count throughout the afternoon. Gilmartin went to a three ball count just twice, once in the second inning and one more time in the eighth. He finished the game with six strikeouts and did not walk a batter for the first time in 14 starts this year.
