racers baseb4 300MURRAY, Ky. (6/4/14) — Murray State catcher Tyler Lawrence put together one of the best freshman campaigns in school history, and the efforts did not go unnoticed as he was named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball.

Lawrence becomes just the second MSU player to earn Freshman All-American honors, joining Brandon Elliott in 2010. Elliott was tabbed a Third-Team Freshman All-American by Ping!Baseball.

Lawrence started all 52 games during the season. He hit .313 with 11 doubles, one triple, one home run and 36 RBIs while splitting his time behind the plate and as the designated hitter. He tied for the team lead with 65 hits, while posting a team-best 21 multi-hit games.

He had a breakout game in the series finale against Bowl-ing Green by going 3-for-4 with four RBIs in a 6-3 victory. He later drove in a career-best five runs in a victory at UT Martin. He collected his first home run of his career, a three-run shot, in helping MSU to a 6-1 victory in the series opener against Eastern Kentucky.

Lawrence was selected to the Ohio Valley Conference All-Freshman Team last month.
