Pitt's baseball team struggled to close out the season, but the Panthers did have four players make the prestigious All-ACC teams this year.

Leading the way was first-teamer Charles Leblanc, who had a monster season. In addition to being named for the watchlist for the Brooks Wallace Award (given to the top shortstop in the nation), Leblanc led the team in batting average, runs, hits, RBI, on-base percentage, and assists. His .405  batting average was 13th in the entire nation and his on-base percentage of .494 was 17th.

Zeuch, projected by many as a first-round pick in this year's upcoming MLB Draft, made the second team with a 6-1 record and 3.10 ERA. 1B/OF Nick Yarnall made the third team as he led the Panthers in home runs with 11. You might remember Yarnall's big series against Grambling State where he twice hit two home runs in the same inning. His five overall home runs that weekend netted him ACC Co-Player of the Week honors.

Finally, freshman Yaya Chentouf was named to the league's All-Freshman squad. Chentouf was one of the Panthers' most versatile players, earning six saves as the team's closer (sixth most in the ACC) and also playing in the outfield for the team, collecting seven hits and six RBI on the year.
