Three Maryland baseball players were named to the 2014 All-ACC team, with senior pitcher Jake Stinnett and junior center fielder Charlie White earning second-team honors while redshirt freshman second baseman Brandon Lowe was named to the third team.
This marks the first time in 30 years that at least three Terps earned all-conference honors. Maryland has qualified for the ACC tournament for the first time in nine years.
Stinnett finished the regular season with a 6-6 record and a 2.53 ERA and finished second in the ACC in strikeouts with 113. The right-hander also tossed one of three no-hitters by ACC pitchers this season when he blanked Massachusetts on March 1.
White, Maryland's all-time stolen base leader, racked up 24 steals this season, good for second in the ACC. He is batting .295 on the season, second amongst Terps.
Lowe bounced back after missing the 2013 season with a knee injury, hitting a league best .411 in conference play. He led the team in on-base percentage (.468) and slugging percentage (.575) and was second in RBIs with 36.
Florida State outfielder D.J. Steward earned ACC Player of the Year honors, while Miami's Chris Diaz and Virginia's Nathan Kirby shared ACC Pitcher of the Year. The league's 14 head coaches vote annually on the awards.
