The two All-American teams are also made up of nine conference “Rookie of the Year” winners. In addition, 31 all-conference honorees appear on the team. The teams also include three conference “Players of the Year,” two conference “Pitchers of the Year,” three conference “Freshman Pitchers of the Year” and one conference “Freshman Position Player of the Year.”

Arizona (2 1st team), LSU (2 1st team), Texas Tech (2 1st team), California (2 2nd team) and TCU (2 2nd team) were tied for the lead with two Freshman All-American honorees each. The Big 12 led all conferences with seven players selected to the two teams combined, placing four players on the first team and three on the second team.
