Tuscon, Ariz. - Freshman Cameron Stone (West Haven, Conn.) of the Stony Brook baseball team has been named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-America as selected by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, the organization announced Wednesday.

Stone has been highly decorated for his outstanding rookie season, having already been named first-team All-America East and the America East Rookie of the Year. In 18 appearances, Stone had allowed just nine runs on 26 hits while striking out 45. Opponents hit just .194 against him, and he had a 1.96 ERA alongside eight saves. He was second in America East in saves and ninth in strikeouts, the only reliever in the conference to place in the top 10.

Four of Stone's eight saves on the season were in multi-inning appearances, including saves over USC, Albany and Marist. He had a 14-1/3 scoreless inning streak between March 9-18 and was nearly unhittable during conference play, when he had a 0.93 ERA and a .094 opponent batting average.

Stone is the 11th all-time #Seawolves player to earn the Louisville Slugger honor, and this is the fifth consecutive season that Stony Brook has placed at least one student-athlete on the team.
