LEXINGTON – June 12, 2024

Ryan Waldschmidt has been named Perfect Game third team all-american, it was announced Wednesday.

Waldschmidt was searing hot in Southeastern Conference play, finishing as one of a handful of players with a batting average over .400 (.405). Overall, he has hit .346 with a 1.107 OPS, 64 runs, 17 doubles, 14 home runs, 46 RBI, 36 walks, 16 hit by pitch and 24 stolen bases.

Maybe most impressive was the Bradenton, Florida native produced this season after recovering from a torn ACL in summer baseball in 2023. He did not return to the outfield until several weeks into the season.

He also has received honors from the SEC and American Baseball Coaches Association.

UK will open play in the College World Series at 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. local time on Saturday, June 15 in Omaha, Nebraska against NC State.
