CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia baseball's Jarrett Parker (Jr., Stafford, Va.) and Danny Hultzen (So., Bethesda, Md.) each have been named to the Rivals.com 2010 Preseason All-America Team. Virginia was the lone school to have more than one selection to the 15-man team.
Parker, a unanimous All-American in the national awards circuit last season, was a First-Team All-ACC pick in 2009 after putting up record-setting numbers. He finished with a .355 batting average with 16 home runs and 65 runs batted in. He also had 20 stolen bases while playing in all 65 of Virginia's games.
Parker set the Virginia single-season records in runs (75), hits (94) and total bases (176) and tied the record for triples (7). He also ranks among the top 10 in UVa single-season history in doubles (20 - T4th), home runs (16 - T3rd) and RBI (65 - 3rd).
Hultzen was a two-way standout for the Cavaliers last year. The first ACC Freshman of the Year in Virginia history, Hultzen saw time at pitcher, first base, left field and designated hitter while earning a slot on the All-ACC First Team. On the mound, he posted a 9-1 record with a 2.17 ERA in 17 games (16 starts). In 95 innings, Hultzen recorded 107 strikeouts, which is a Virginia freshman record and also ranks sixth overall in UVa history. His 16 starts tied a Virginia single-season record, while his total of nine wins is tied for sixth in the Virginia annals.
At the plate, Hultzen recorded a .327 batting average - second among ACC freshmen behind teammate Steven Proscia. He also hit three home runs and drove in 37 runs.
Virginia, ranked as high as second nationally in the preseason, begins its 2010 season on Friday when it starts a three-game series at East Carolina, which is tabbed as high as 11th in the national polls.
