Hogs Place Three on Baseball America Preseason Squads


Arkansas baseball landed three on Baseball America’s 2020 Preseason All-American list, the most of any program among this year’s lists.

Outfielder Heston Kjerstad and infielder Casey Martin were selected to the publication’s first team, making Arkansas the only team in the nation with multiple first-teamers. Catcher Casey Opitz was also voted to the third team, his first preseason All-American honor this winter. Kjersad and Martin have been recognized four times heading into the 2020 campaign.

Martin was also recognized as the “fastest runner” among Preseason All-American honorees, while Opitz garnered “best catcher arm” accolades among the group. The Baseball America All-American teams are voted on by Major League Basesball’s scouting departments.

The Razorbacks 2020 season kicks off with Eastern Illinois for the second straight season, beginning on Friday, February 14 at 3 p.m. at Baum-Walker Stadium.
