Nebraska junior Max Anderson received his fifth second-team All-American honor this month, as Baseball America released its All-America teams on Wednesday.
Wednesday’s accolade comes after Anderson was recognized by ABCA/Rawlings, Collegiate Baseball, Perfect Game and NCBWA as a second-team All-American earlier this month. The Omaha native was also named the NCBWA’s District 6 Player of the Year, becoming the first Husker to earn the recognition since Luke Gorsett in 2006.
A Golden Spikes Award semifinalist, Anderson was a unanimous First-Team All-Big Ten honoree while hitting .414 with 20 doubles, two triples, 21 home runs, 70 RBI and 51 runs scored.
The junior became the first player in the country to reach 100 hits and finished with 101 hits on the season, which is sixth-most by a Husker in a single-season in program history. Anderson is the first Husker to conclude the season hitting above .400 since John Cole’s .418 batting average in 2001.
Anderson became the first Big Ten player with 15 home runs in a conference season with a traditional schedule. Anderson finished the 2023 campaign ranked fourth on the single-season charts in program history with 188 total bases while climbing to fifth with 21 home runs and 43 extra-base hits.
