CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia's Derek Fisher (Fr., Rexmont, Pa.) has been named to the 2012 Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America Team, as announced Wednesday by Collegiate Baseball.

Fisher is the first Cavalier to earn a spot on Louisville Slugger's Freshman All-America squad since 2009 when Danny Hultzen and Steven Proscia each were named to the team.

Fisher hit .288 with seven home runs and 50 runs batted in during his rookie season. He hit eight triples to match Jarrett Parker's UVa single-season record and also finished second on the team with 26 extra-base hits.

Fisher currently leads all ACC freshmen in triples, home runs, RBI and slugging (.507) this year.
