GREENSBORO, N.C. – Boston College junior second baseman Luke Gold (Ballston, N.Y.) was named to the All-ACC Baseball Second Team by the league’s coaches as announced by the conference on Monday morning. It is the second such honor for Gold, who was the league’s First Team third baseman a year ago.
This season he hit .308, tied for the team-high in hits at 62, with nine home runs, 38 runs scored and 37 driven in. Gold slugged .557 with 21 doubles; good for second-most in the ACC. His 21 doubles are also tied for the fourth-most in a single season at BC. He started all 53 games for the Eagles and produced a team-leading 20 multi-hit games.
Gold became the third-fastest player to 100 career hits in BC history; doing so in his 80th career game. He is a career .303 hitter with 132 hits, 40 doubles, 19 home runs, 97 RBI, and a .540 slugging percentage.
Gold becomes just the second two-time All-ACC honoree from Boston College. He joins former teammates Sal Frelick (2019 Second Team, 2021 First Team) and Cody Morissette (2019 Second, 2021 First) as well as Mickey Wiswall (2009 Second, 2010 First) and Chris Shaw (2014 First, 2015 Second).
