Ryan and Schoonnmaker all-americans

Recommended Posts

From the UA site:



Albany, N.Y.- University at Albany’s Shawn Ryan and Dan Schoonmaker were named Honorable Mention All-Americans by CollegeBaseballInsider.com. The three-year old web site released its All-American teams on Tuesday, June 15. Ryan along with teammate Derek DeGrazio were voted to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) All-Northeast Region First Team as announced on Wednesday, June 16.


Ryan, a junior closer, was selected as a relief pitcher on both teams after collecting a school record 14 saves this past season, which ranks him third nationally among Division I players. He posted a 3.60 ERA with 28 strikeouts in 25 innings of work and established another UAlbany mark with 27 appearances.


Schoonmaker, the 2004 America East Conference Player of theYear, garnered the honor as a first baseman. The senior, who also saw time at third base, batted .353 with ten home runs and a UAlbany record 51 RBI. Schoonmaker finished his career ranked among the top three in school history in home runs (23), RBI (125) and triples (11).


DeGrazio, who was also named to the America East First Team, was the ABCA First Team selection as a designated hitter. The junior batted .369 with six homers, 45 RBI and 32 runs scored.


The ABCA Northeast Region encompasses 43 Division I schools. The 43 head coaches nominate their players for recognition and then vote to select First and Second All-Northeast Teams.


The Great Danes went 37-14 during the 2004 campaign and made their first-ever trip to the America East postseason tournament. The win total shattered the previous school-high of 21 established in 1999
