Today, Rawlings and Perfect Game announced their Preseason All-American teams, recognizing the top underclass baseball players from the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico. Sophomore Joe Wozny was included on their High Honorable Mention team.

From the press release:

“With more than 450,000 high school baseball players in the nation, the Rawlings-Perfect Game Preseason Underclass All-American players represent the very best in their class,” said Mike Thompson, executive vice president of marketing for St. Louis-based Rawlings. “Rawlings and Perfect Game are synonymous with the game of baseball, and the preseason awards allow us to recognize and reward these elite athletes for their hard work and contribution to the game.”

“To receive the Rawlings-Perfect Game Preseason All-American or All-Region Award is a tremendous achievement for these high school student-athletes,” said Jerry Ford, president of Cedar Rapids, IA-based Perfect Game. “We are proud to recognize their talent as they prepare for their careers playing collegiate or professional baseball.”

In his freshman campaign with the Bears, Wozny won 3 games and struck out 65 over 31.1 innings pitched while giving up just 18 hits. Against League Champion Southold he struck out nine in 4.2 innings of work and against second place Pierson he fanned 13 in 5.0 innings.

On Tuesday he won his first game of the year, striking out 13 in a 6-3 win over Port Jeff.
