Jake Mulholland Becomes First Four-Time Oregon State All-American
DALLAS – Left-handed pitcher Jake Mulholland became the first player in Oregon State history to earn All-American honors in four different seasons when he was selected as a second teamer Wednesday by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA).
Mulholland was also a second-team selection by the NCBWA in 2017 as a freshman. He earned third-team honors by the NCBWA and Collegiate Baseball in 2018, and was selected by Perfect Game as a third-team selection in 2019.
The lefty finished the 2021 season with a 2-2 record, 3.03 earned run average and 13 saves, which is tied for the Pac-12 Conference lead. Opponents batted just .198 against him and he struck out 25 in 32 2/3 innings.
Mulholland, who hails from Snohomish, Wash., ended his OSU career with 121 appearances and a 14-10 record with a 2.53 ERA. He saved a school-record 43 games, which is tied for ninth-most in NCAA Division I history.
The honor is the second of the day for Mulholland, who was recognized as an All-Region First-Team honoree by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA).
Mulholland and Michael Conforto (2012-14) were the only two Beavers to earn All-America honors in three different seasons. Dallas Buck (2005, 2006), Jay Dean (1954, 1955), Bryce Fehmel (2016, 2018), Luke Heimlich (2017, 2018), Cecil Ira (1962, 1963), Nick Madrigal (2017, 2018), Andrew Moore (2013, 2015), Jonah Nickerson (2005, 2006) and Adley Rutschman (2018, 2019) are other Beavers with two years of All-America selections.
