SAINT PETER, Minn. – Gustavus first baseman Jack Hanson (Sr., Minnetonka) was named First Team All-America by both ABCA/Rawlings and D3baseball.com, which were announced Wednesday and Thursday. Hanson earns the program’s fifth All-America honor and second consecutive after teammate Bryce Novak (Jr., Cleveland) was named D3baseball.com Third Team All-America last season. Hanson is the first Gustie to receive First Team All-America honors since Tony Konicek repeated as an ABCA First Team selection in 2006 and 2007. 

Yesterday, Hanson was named D3baseball.com Region 9 Player of the Year and ABCA/Rawlings Region 9 Position Player of the Year. Making his first appearance on the D3baseball.com All-America Team, Hanson was also named MIAC Player of the Year after winning the “triple crown” in the MIAC when including all games played this season, leading the league in batting average (.491), runs batted in (57), and home runs (14).
