Jeffrey Inman Named Preseason Third-Team All-America
Feb. 16, 2009
STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford junior right-handed pitcher Jeffrey Inman has been named by Baseball America as a preseason third-team All-America selection, the publication announced today.
Inman is Stanford's top returning winner after going 7-2 with a 4.27 ERA (34er, 71.2ip) in 16 games (13 starts) in 2008. The Bakersfield, Calif. native ranked second on the Cardinal's College World Series staff for wins, innings and starts last year, while he held right-handed batters to a .246 average (35-for-142). He followed up his sophomore collegiate campaign by striking out 34 batters in just 31.1 innings for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox, and was tabbed by Baseball America as the ninth-best prospect in the 2008 Cape Cod League.
Stanford, which is ranked as high as No. 5 in national preseason polls, is scheduled to open its 2009 campaign with four home games this weekend at Klein Field at Sunken Diamond. The Cardinal will host Vanderbilt for single games on Friday, February 20 (5:30 p.m.) and Saturday, February 21 (1:00 p.m.) before welcoming UC Riverside for a Sunday, February 22 doubleheader (12:00 p.m.).
