Lincecum Makes Two More All-America Teams
June 13, 2006
SEATTLE - Washington pitcher Tim Lincecum was named to both the Baseball America magazine and National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association All-America first teams today.
Lincecum, a junior from Renton's Liberty High, was selected by the San Francisco Giants with the first pick in the first round of last week's Major League Baseball draft. He was the only Pac-10 player named to the NCBWA first-team and one of only two to make Baseball America's first team, alongside Oregon State outfielder Cole Gillespie.
In 2006, Lincecum went 12-4 with a 1.94 earned run average and 199 strikeouts, most in the nation. He was named the Pac-10 Pitcher of the Year for the second time in his career and finished his third season as a Husky with the season and career school records for wins and strikeouts.
Earlier, he was named to the Collegiate Baseball newspaper All-America first team.
