TUCSON, Ariz. – Boston College third baseman Cody Morissette (Exeter, N.H.) was named an All-American for the second year in a row by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper. A second-team selection, Morissette became the first two-time All-American in BC history.
In a shortened 15-game season, Morissette hit a team-best .448 (26-for-58) and owned a 1.177 OPS with six doubles, two home runs, and nine walks. He scored 14 runs, drove in 11 and added three stolen bases.
Against Holy Cross on March 10, the Eagles’ final game of the season, Morissette collected his 100th career hit with a first-inning single that started a two-out rally, which led to the first BC run in a 10-7 win. The hit made him the fastest player in BC history to reach 100 by doing so in 73 career games. The previous record was 81 games by Tony Sanchez in 2008.
Morissette became the first Eagle to earn second-team recognition or better since 2009 when Sanchez was a first-team (Baseball America) and Mike Belfiore was a second-team (ABCA) selection. Last season, Morissette and teammate Dan Metzdorf were both named to the CBN All-America Third Team. Morissette’s 2020 honor marks the first time since Chris Shaw in 2015 and Justin Dunn in 2016 that BC landed an All-American in back-to-back seasons and just the third time in program history.
