Junior Derek McCallum (Shoreview, Minn.) was named an NCBWA First-Team All-American on Wednesday, June 10 according an announcement by the National College Baseball Writers Association.

This just proves that much more what a steaming pile of bullsh!t it was that he was not named the Big Ten Player of the Year - rather the runner-up. The Ohio State guy that they gave it to is no where to be found on the First Team.

McCallum was one of three players to be a unanimous First-Team All-Big Ten selection. He was also one of two players to be named to the Big Ten All-Tournament team and an NCAA Regional All-Tournament team. In postseason play (five Big Ten Tournament games and four NCAA Regional games), McCallum batted .457 (16-for-35) with 11 runs, five doubles, three home runs, 14 RBI, an .857 slugging percentage and a .545 on-base percentage.
