Tech Baseball Player Named All-American -- Again
Tennessee Tech center fielder Chad Oberacker has been named to his third pre-season All America team by an organization called College Baseball Lineup. Already this year, Oberacker has made his way onto Louisville Slugger's second team and was named third team by the National Collegiate Baseball Writer's Association. Of the 11 men named to the Lineup's first team, Oberacker maintained the highest batting average after last season with his .452, a statistic that ranked third in the nation at the end of the 2010 season. A member of four post-season All America teams following his 2010 season Oberacker, out of Erie, PA., batted in the clean-up position, consistently hiting over .400 for the entire season. He finished fourth in the nation in total hits with 108 – a statistic that ranked first in the OVC - 40 of which were for extra bases. His career batting average of .395 takes top honors in Tech history.
