Jace Jung Cal Conley

LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech Baseball's Jace Jung and Cal Conley continue to rack up the national awards, this time being named to the College Baseball Foundation (CBF) All-American Team on Wednesday.

The Red Raiders were one of three schools with multiple first team bids and the only Big 12 squad to earn two CBF All-America honors.

The award marks the sixth All-America selection for Jung this season, who just last week picked up Third Team ABCA All-America honors. He was also named First Team All-American by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, the NCBWA and Perfect Game while earning second team honors from Baseball America. 

Conley, who was named the 2021 Brooks Wallace Award winner for the nation's top shortstop, earns his fourth All-America honor this season. He received Collegiate Baseball Newspaper second team honors and third team nods from the ABCA and the NCBWA.

Both Jung and Conley were also named Freshman All-Americans by the NCBWA.

Jung has quickly become one of the most decorated players in the country. The second baseman was named the Big 12 Player of the Year, NCBWA National Freshman Hitter of the Year, District 7 Co-Player of the Year, Golden Spikes Award semifinalist and Dick Howser Trophy finalist. He was honored as a unanimous All-Big 12 First Team selection, District 7 First Team and ABCA All-Region Team member. 

The freshman from San Antonio led the Big 12 in home runs (21), RBI (67) and slugging percentage (.697) which were some of the top marks in the country. Jung hit .337 on the season, reaching base safely in all 48 regular season games.

Conley earned All-Big 12 First Team honors after posting a .329 hitting clip with 15 home runs and 55 RBI, both top-10 marks in the conference. He reached safely in 43-of-56 games this season and his 23 multi-hit games led all Red Raiders.
