Fresno State baseball: Jordan Luplow picks up fourth All-America award (video)

Fresno State's Jordan Luplow tries to track down a flyball in right field during an April 6, 2014 game against UNLV.


Jordan Luplow's final college season included yet another All-America nod, as the now Pittsburgh Pirates minor league outfielder was named Wednesday to the American Baseball Coaches Association second team.

It was Luplow's fourth All-America selection after batting .377, scoring 40 runs, driving in 48 and homering nine times in 57 games for Fresno State while earning Mountain West Conference Player of the Year honors.

The junior previously was named a Louisville Slugger third-teamer by Collegiate Baseball, and to the second team by Baseball America and Perfect Game.

The Buchanan High alum is the first Fresno State player to be named an All-American by the ABCA, Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball in the same season since Dusty Robinson in 2011.

Luplow was a third-round selection, No. 100 overall, by Pittsburgh in major league baseball's June amateur draft. He passed up his senior season by signing a pro deal this week and was assigned by the Pirates to Jamestown of the short-season Class-A New York-Penn League.
