Barnes Collects Third Freshman All-America Honor

LUBBOCK, Texas Texas Tech first baseman Barrett Barnes has swept freshman All-American honors as he was named to the Baseball America First-Team Freshman All-America squad. 

 Barnes, from Sugarland, Texas, was also selected as a Louisville Slugger and National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association First-Team Freshman All-American. He collected 53 RBIs and 19 doubles this season, led the team with a .341 batting average, and picked up the Big 12's Freshman of the Year award to cap a phenomenal freshman season. 

Barnes is the first Red Raider to earn all three freshman All-America honors since Roger Kieschnick (2006).
