Murray makes Duke history after big freshman year

DURHAM, N.C. (CBS19 SPORTS) -- After making an immediate impact for the Duke baseball program, freshman infielder Ethan Murray continues to garner postseason honors.

The latest came Friday, when the Miller School graduate was named a Freshman All-American by both D1Baseball.com and Baseball America. Murray was the first-team shortstop on the D1Baseball.com Freshman All-America team, and the second-team shortstop on the Baseball America team.

Earlier this month, Murray was also named a second-team Freshman All-American by both Perfect Game and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. He's the first player in Duke baseball history to earn Freshman All-American honors from four different publications.

As the Blue Devils' everyday shortstop, Murray finished the spring second on the team in batting average (.305), runs scored (48) and RBI (40). His .391 on-base percentage was best on the team, and Murray hit a team-best .321 in ACC play.
