Oklahoma State outfielder Garrett McCain has earned first-team All-American honors by ABCA/Rawlings, it was announced on Monday.

McCain becomes the 25th Cowboy in the program’s illustrious history to earn first-team All-America status. The selection by ABCA/Rawlings is the fourth outlet to name him an All-American, joining Baseball America, the Perfect Game/Rawling and D1 Baseball.

As a junior last season for Oklahoma State, McCain lead the Big 12 with a .388 batting average, hits (87) and on-base percentage (.491). He also ranked in the top five in the league in steals (19), total bases (123), runs (53), slugging percentage (.549) and triples (5).

Unfortunately for Josh Holliday, he’ll have to move on next season without his All-Big 12 outfielder. McCain was selected by the Detroit Tigers in the 10th-round of MLB Draft last week and has already made the decision to move on from OSU to pursue his professional career.

McCain has already signed with the Tigers for his full slot value of $132,600.
