June 16, 2014
Chestnut Hill, Mass. - Boston College rising junior Chris Shaw was named to the 2014 American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) All-Northeast First Team for his outstanding play in the outfield on Monday. The right fielder adds the honor to his All-Atlantic Coast First-Team and New England Intercollegiate Baseball Association (NEIBA) All-England accolades garnered in 2014.
Shaw, a Lexington, Mass., native, started all 55 games for the Eagles (22-33, 10-20 ACC), playing 53 in right. He led the Maroon in Gold in nine offensive categories, including batting average (.329), slugging percentage (.502), hits (68), RBIs (45), doubles (18), home runs (6) and multiple-RBI games (10). He also drove in the game-winning run five times. He did not make an error in 105 chances and tallied six outfield assists.
The outfielder ended the regular season ranked on six of the ACC's top-10 lists, including eighth in batting average and second among outfielders behind ACC Player of the Year DJ Stewart of Florida State. His 18 doubles tied for eighth on BC's single-season record list, as well. He recorded a 16-game hit streak that was third in Boston College history (dating back to 2005). He ended the season by reaching base safely in the last 21 games and had at least one hit in 22 of the final 24 games.
Shaw is currently playing for the Chatham Anglers in the prestigious Cape Code Baseball League.
