Two returning Red Raiders picked up preseason accolades on Wednesday as senior first baseman Scott LeJeune and sophomore infielder Tim Proudfoot were both named to the College Sports Madness Preseason All-Big 12 first and second team, respectively.
The staff at College Sports Madness selected a first and second team while they help preview all of the conferences in college baseball prior to the season.
LeJeune is coming off a junior campaign that saw him hit .296 (66-for-223) with 31 runs, 16 doubles, one home run and 43 RBI. LeJeune is a .313 career hitter with 204 career hits, 58 doubles, seven home runs and 138 RBI.
LeJeune enters his senior season leading all active players in the conference with 58 doubles.
Proudfoot became the first Red Raider freshman in school history to start in at least 50 games at shortstop last season. He batted .237 with 14 doubles, five triples and two home runs while leading all Big 12 freshmen in extra-base hits (21).
Proudfoot was named to the Brooks Wallace Award Watch list – an award given annually to the top shortstop in college baseball. He was one of just four freshmen shortstops in the country named to the prestigious list.
