Read Time:1 Minute, 53 Second

TUCSON, Ariz. – Senior left-hander Dan Metzdorf (Burlington, Mass.) and freshman second baseman Cody Morissette (Exeter, N.H.) were named to the Collegiate Baseball All-America Third Team on Thursday. The duo becomes the first pair of Boston College baseball players to earn All-America recognition in the same year since Mike Belfiore and Tony Sanchez in 2009.

Metzdorf, who was named an All-ACC First Team selection last week, closed his collegiate career with a complete game, three-hitter to beat top-seeded and No. 7 Louisville to win Pool A of the ACC Championship and send the Eagles to their first-ever conference semifinals. As the Friday night ace of the BC staff, Metzdorf compiled an 8-2 record, 2.30 earned run average, .204 batting average against and 72 strikeouts in 82.1 innings. He went 6-2 in league play; guiding the Eagles to wins over Wake Forest, No. 19 Florida State, No. 17 Georgia Tech, No. 25 Duke, Virginia Tech and a postseason-clinching win against Notre Dame.

Metzdorf finished his career with 13 wins, 2401. Innings pitched and 191 strikeouts. He ranks fourth all-time in innings and ninth all-time in strikeouts in the BC record book. His eight wins as a senior are tied for the sixth most in a single season and 2.30 ERA is sixth in a season at BC.

Morissette hit .441 (26-for-59) in the second half of ACC play to hit .320 for the season. An All-ACC Second Team and ACC All-Freshman team pick, he led the Eagles with 20 doubles and 41 RBI. His 20 doubles are tied for seventh most in a single season at BC. Morissette, like Metzdorf, capped his season by being named to the ACC All-Tournament Team. After hitting just two home runs in the regular season, he burst on to the playoff scene with two home runs in BC’s championship-opening win over Clemson.

Metzdorf and Morissette are the 10th and 11th All-Americans in Boston College baseball history. The most recent All-American was Justin Dunn; a 2016 Third Team selection by Baseball America. Four of BC’s 11 All-Americans have been in the last five seasons, including Dunn and Chris Shaw (2015).
