Penn State Baseball: Hagenman Takes Home All-American Honors

by on June 09, 2016 1:40 PM

Penn State freshman pitcher Justin Hagenman picked up another rookie honor this week as Collegiate Baseball named him to its 2016 NCAA Division I Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American team. The magazine announced their selections earlier this week.

Hagenman also took home All-Big Ten Freshman honors and is just the second Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American from Penn State and the first for the program since 1997. Michael Campo took home that award that year. Hagenman is just one of 34 starting pitchers selected across the country and the only one from the Big Ten.  

Overall, Hagenman was one of four Big Ten picks to the team. His efforts helped Penn State finish with the program's first winning season since 2012.

Hagenman became the first Penn State pitcher to reach six wins since 2011. He started the finales of all of Penn State’s weekend series, finishing with an ERA of 3.84 in 82 innings pitched. His best outing came at Illinois, as he pitched 8 1/3 innings, allowing only an unearned run early and then two earned runs in the ninth scored after he departed. He also matched his career high of six strikeouts and allowed just four hits and two walks.
