For the 22nd time in UConn Baseball history, the Huskies have a player named to an All-American team. After winning the American Athletic Conference Pitcher of the Year and being named to the All-Conference first team, Anthony Kay was named a second-team All-American.

Kay had a strong season as the unquestioned ace of UConn's staff. In 16 starts, Kay went 9-2, throwing 113.1 innings. He had two complete games to go along with a 2.46 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. He only allowed batters to hit .217 against him and had 108 strikeouts. He is 24th nationally in strikeouts and 90th nationally in ERA.

Carson Cross and Vinny Siena were both named to the third team last season and the Huskies have had eight All-America selections in the past seven years, with three of those coming in 2011, including first team selections and current MLB'ers Matt Barnes and George Springer.

Kay was also named Most Outstanding Player of the AAC Tournament, as well as being named to the All-Tournament team.
