DURHAM, N.C.-Louisiana’s Ragin’ Cajuns Jonathan Lucroy earned yet another
accolade for the 2007 season.  The Cajuns’ catcher was named to the Baseball
America All-America Team.

Lucroy was named First Team All-Sun Belt Conference, First Team All-Louisiana
and was named All-Louisiana Hitter of the Year. 

He led the team with a .360 batting average.  Lucroy recorded 95 hits on the
season, the second highest single season total in Cajuns history.  Of his 95
hits, he had 40 extra base hits, including 18 homeruns, 19 doubles and three
triples.  His 18 homeruns were the third most in school history for a single

For the second consecutive year, he drove in 68 runs to lead the team. 
Lucroy set the Ragin’ Cajuns’ single season record with a 174 total bases on
the year.  He had 31 multiple hit games on the season, including a five-hit
performance against South Alabama on March 11.  Lucroy tied for first on the
team with 13 multi-RBI games.  He had five or more RBI in four games, the
most by any Cajuns player

At the conclusion of his junior season, he ranked in the Cajuns’ top-5 in
eight categories.  Lucroy was fourth on the UL career batting average list
with a .356 average and second all-time list with 241 base hits.  Lucroy
finished his Cajuns’ career first in career doubles with 54 and third in
career homeruns with 35.  He is the Cajuns’ career RBI leader with 184 and
first in school history with 414 total bases.  Lucroy is third all-time with
a .612 career slugging percentage and fourth all-time with 16 career
sacrifice flies. 

Lucroy was a third round draft pick by the Milwaukee Brewers in the 2007
Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. 

Vanderbilt lefthander David Price, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft,
headlined the 2007 Baseball America All-America first team.

Price struck out a school-record 194 batters and walked just 31 in 133
innings, finishing 11-1, 2.63. Price’s 194 strikeouts ranks second only to
Ben McDonald’s 202 strikeouts in 1989 in the history of the Southeastern

Vanderbilt sophomore third baseman Pedro Alvarez and senior righthander Casey
Weathers join Price to give the Commodores the most players on the first
team. First baseman Brett Wallace of Arizona State and Kyle Russell of Texas
were the two other sophomore position players on the roster.

Georgia Tech catcher Matt Wieters and James Madison outfielder Kellen
Kulbacki join Alvarez as a repeat member of the first team.

Rutgers junior Todd Frazier and Florida State junior Tony Thomas are the
team’s middle infielders. Cal Poly junior outfielder Grant Desme, Florida
senior Matt LaPorta and Rice first baseman/lefthander Joe Savery round out
the first team hitters.

Joining Price on the pitching staff is Charlotte senior Adam Mills, who led
the nation with a 1.01 ERA. A pair of sophomore righthanders round out the
team in Jacob Thompson of Virginia and Preston Guilmet of Arizona. Five
sophomores made the first team overall. Nine sophomores made the second and
third teams, and North Carolina’s Dustin Ackley was the only freshman
represented, making the third team.
