TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State junior to be Ryan Schroyer has been named a second-team Summer All-American by Baseball America after going 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and six saves for the Alaska Goldpanners.
Schroyer, who was named the No. 3 from the Alaskan League, struck out 35 batters in 17 and a third innings and allowed only six hits. In his two seasons with ASU, he has compiled a 6-3 record. During the 2002 season, he recorded a Pac-10 best 2.37 ERA in 60.2 innings and struck out 75 batters. He was named Collegiate Baseball and NCBWA National Pitcher of the Week after he struck out 11 batters in his first outing of the year in 6.2 innings versus Southern Utah (2/1). He settled into the closer role later in the season, earning eight save and holding opposing batters to only a .228 average. Schroyer was named Pac-10 honorable mention as both a player and for academics.
Schroyer is the third Sun Devil to receive summer All-America honors from Baseball America in the last two years, as pitcher Mike Esposito (Team USA) and outfielder Rodney Allen (Anchorage Glacier Pilots) were both second-team selections last summer.
