Baseball: Leger And Moore Named To Louisville Slugger Freshmen All-American Team

 TUSCON, Ariz – For the third straight season the Ragin’ Cajuns baseball team will have a freshman All-American on its roster as pitchers Gunner Leger and Dylan Moore were selected to the 2015 Louisville Slugger Freshmen All-American team, Collegiate Baseball announced on Wednesday.
Moore and Leger join Reagan Bazar (2014) and Blake Trahan (2013) as current members of the Louisiana squad that have received the honor. The Cajuns have had six freshmen All-Americans in program history including Jonathan Lucroy in 2005 and Andy Gros in 2000.
"It’s always good to be honored for your body of work. Especially when you work is that good as a freshman," head coach Tony Robichaux said. "I’m glad they both worked very hard and put in a lot of work, but hopefully they understand the hard work that comes with being an All-American."
Leger, the Sun Belt Freshman of the Year, has a 6-4 record with a 2.87 ERA in 17 starts. The Lake Charles, La., native also has a team-best 83 strikeouts in 106.2 innings while allowing only 19 walks. An All-Sun Belt First Team selection, Leger had a stretch of 38 innings where he didn’t allow a free pass. He’s recorded nine quality starts on the season including six of his last seven starts.
Moore, an All-Sun Belt Second Team selection, broke the school record for saves in a season with 13 this year. He is already three back of the career record of 16 set by Matt Hicks from 2011-14. Moore has a 3-3 record with a 1.42 ERA in 50.2 innings. The right-hander has posted 40 strikeouts on the season and opponents are hitting just .201 against him. Moore has allowed a run in only eight of his team-high 31 appearances.
"They are in good company," Robichaux added. "It just shows you that this is not an easy award to get. We are very fortunate. This speaks volumes for coach (Jeremy) Talbot and coach Bab (Anthony Babineaux), our coaches who are out recruiting to continue to bring in those kind of freshmen. I think that’s the reason we are where we are today, because we are bringing in quality freshmen.  I think we have more on the way, so that speaks volumes to our recruiting."
The pair along with Trahan and Stefan Trosclair give the Cajuns four All-Americans this season as the squad is one of six programs in the country to reach the NCAA Super Regionals in the last two years.
The Cajuns open the Baton Rouge Super Regional against top-ranked LSU on Saturday at 7 p.m. at Alex Box Stadium. The contest will be televised on ESPN2.
