Gomez named Freshman All-American
Earlier this week second baseman Anthony Gomez was named to Collegiate Baseball's Freshman All-American team.
Gomez currently leads the Commodores with a .377 batting average with two homers and 28 RBI in 57 games (48 starts) on the year. He is one of the toughest players to strikeout in the nation with just eight strikeouts in 204 at bats on the year (ranked fifth in nation at one K every 25.5 at-bat)
The New Jersey product is also a fine fielding second baseman with just five errors on the season and sports a .971 on base percentage.
Gomez is the 18th Commodore to receive Freshmen honors and the seventh player to receive the plaudit under Vanderbilt head coach Tim Corbin.
