TUCSON, Ariz. – Columbia baseball first-years Julian Bury and Liam McGill added Collegiate Baseball Freshmen All-America honors to their resumes, as announced by the publication Wednesday. The duo joined Princeton designated hitter David Harding as the Ivy League representatives.
Bury, the Ivy League Rookie of the Year and first team all-conference selection, served as the team's leadoff hitter and rightfielder. He hit .333 with 14 doubles and 17 RBI. Additionally, Bury's 0.38 doubles per game were No. 2 among all NCAA freshmen.
McGill led Ivy League rookies with a .338 batting average and was second in the conference with a .461 on-base percentage. The second team All-Ivy League member also belted four homers to go with 25 RBI.
Bury and McGill are the first Columbia players to earn freshmen All-America accolades since Harrisen Egly and Randell Kanemaru were tabbed in 2015.
