DURHAM, N.C. – Three Boston College baseball players were named All-ACC on Monday afternoon ahead of the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship at Durham Bulls Athletic Park this week. Graduate starting pitcher Chris Flynn (Naugatuck, Conn.) led the trio of BC honorees with a spot on the All-ACC Second Team.
Junior outfielder Travis Honeyman (Massapequa, N.Y.) and junior first baseman Joe Vetrano (Shrub Oak, N.Y.) were each named to the All-ACC Third Team. The award marks the first All-ACC honor in the career of all three players.
The Eagles earned three or more All-ACC selections for the fourth time since joining the league in 2006 and third time in the last five seasons.
Flynn, a graduate transfer from Division III Roger Williams in Rhode Island, anchored the Boston College rotation from the Saturday spot all season. He went 7-2, the most wins by an Eagle since 2019, with a 3.82 earned run average and 80 strikeouts in 70.2 innings pitched. Flynn finished the regular season fifth in the ACC in wins, ninth in strikeouts, and 11th in ERA.
Vetrano powered the BC lineup from the middle of the order with a .306 batting average and .633 slugging percentage, including marks of .320 and .648 in conference play. He slugged 18 home runs, which is the third most in a single season in BC history and most in the BBCOR bat era (2011-present). Vetrano surpassed 50 RBI for the second year in a row with a career-high 51. He added 46 runs, 10 doubles, and owned a .393 on-base percentage.
Honeyman, who missed the final eight games of the regular season and is expected back for the postseason, hit .304, including a .310 average in ACC games, with a .534 slugging percentage and .383 OBP. He hit 15 doubles, two triples, and six home runs while scoring 33 runs and driving in 30. Honeyman added 10 stolen bases and struck out just 21 times in 161 at-bats. Prior to suffering a shoulder injury, Honeyman was hitting .375 (15-for-40) in his last 10 games.
Boston College is 34-17 overall and earned the six seed, its highest ever, at the ACC Championship with a 16-14 record in conference play. The Eagles lead off the tournament action from DBAP on Tuesday, May 23 at 11 a.m. against 10-seed Virginia Tech. BC’s second game in Pool C will take place Friday at 11 a.m. against three-seed Clemson.
The winner of Pool C advances to Saturday’s semifinal. All games will be broadcast nationally on ACC Network.
