Four Boston College baseball players - senior second baseman Mike Gambino, junior first baseman Joe Kealty, senior pitcher/designated hitter Steve Langone and sophomore outfielder Neal McCarthy - earned All-BIG EAST honors, according to an announcement made at the league's annual pre-tournament banquet.

Gambino, Kealty and Langone gained first team honors, while McCarthy was a second-team selection. Langone, however, had the unique distinction of being named to both teams. He was selected to the first team as a "utility" player, and to the second team as a pitcher.

Gambino, who enters the BIG EAST Championship Tournament with a 14-game hitting streak, hit .380 in 51 regular-season games. He enters the tournament with 73 hits, four shy of Boston College's single-season record.

Kealty had a .319 batting average in 45 games, including a .365 average in 23 BIG EAST contests. The Framingham, Mass. resident registered 30 RBIs and 14 extra-base hits.

Langone, who joined Gambino as the only Eagles to play in all 51 games, enters the tournament with a .333 batting average. He tied for the team lead with 32 RBIs. The senior was also the team's pitching ace. In 12 appearances, including eight starts, he posted a 7-2 record with a 1.48 earned run average.

McCarthy, in his first year with the Eagles after transferring from Providence College, had a .316 batting average in 45 regular-season games. He recorded 29 RBIs.

Boston College (33-18) will meet Notre Dame in the first round of the 2000 BIG EAST Championship Tournament at the Somerset Ballpark in Bridgewater, N.J. on May 17.
