2012 College All-America Team Capsules
College baseball lacked an individual performance for the ages in 2012—the kind of seasons Stephen Strasburg, Buster Posey and Trevor Bauer had as juniors. Considering the demands of his defensive position, his leadership value and his power production, Florida catcher Mike Zunino had the best all-around season, earning him our College Player of the Year award.

2012 Preseason All-America Team
The 2011 college class was the type that comes around maybe once a decade. It was loaded with quality pitchers, starting with the first three picks in the draft (Gerrit Cole, Danny Hultzen, Trevor Bauer) and a total of 11 first-rounders. Far from one-sided, it had a number of gifted position players, including an elite hitter (Anthony Rendon) and an exceptional athlete (George Springer). That group was the exception that proves the rule: Big league teams usually weaken the college crops by persuading high school players to turn pro rather than continue their educations. The 2012 college draft pool pales in comparison to last year's.

Pitchers Lead The Way On All-American Team
For the second straight year following a 2008 bumper crop of hitters that included Pedro Alvarez, Buster Posey, Gordon Beckham and Justin Smoak, the college pitching talent significantly dwarfs the position players available in the draft. The disparity is even more glaring on our preseason All-America team selected by major league scouting directors, which includes only NCAA Division I players and thus excludes CC of Southern Nevada catcher Bryce Harper, the top overall prospect and best power hitter in the 2010 draft. Furthermore, the top D-I position player is Rice sophomore third baseman Anthony Rendon, who won't be draft-eligible until 2011.
