The Pitt baseball season ended with a 23-30 record, but one bright spot on the team this year was freshman Alex Amos. The team's starting second baseman was rewarded by making the ACC All-Freshman Team.

"Alex epitomizes Pitt baseball," said head coach Joe Jordano. "He has a blue collar approach to everything he does, both on and off the field. Alex certainly took advantage of his opportunity and played some great baseball for us, and it is awesome that he is being recognized for his effort. He is part of a freshman class that gained valuable experience this season and has laid the foundation for an exciting future."

Even though he was only a freshman, he was statistically one of the team's best players. Amos led the team with a .304 batting average (finishing a full .23 points higher than the next closest player) and was second in runs and walks.

There wasn't much great about the team this year. They were under .500 for the fourth consecutive season and were one of only two teams that failed to reach the conference tournament. But Amos' debut was a good one.
