June 14, 2010
USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - Air Force freshman outfielder Garrett Custons was named to the 2010 Pro-Line Athletic National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Freshman All-American Team, the organization announced today. Custons, a second-team selection, picks up his second frosh All-American honor. He was also named to the Louisville Slugger Freshmen All-American Team by Collegiate Baseball last week.
Custons, a native of Sarasota, Fla., had one of the best freshman seasons ever at the Academy, batting .328 with nine home runs and 64 RBIs. He also led the Mountain West Conference with 16 stolen bases. Custons set Air Force freshman records for at bats (232), hits (76), RBIs, sacrifice bunts (6) and total bases (133). His 64 RBIs is a MWC freshman record and is fifth at the Academy. Custons ranked in the MWC top 10 in seven categories. He started 29 games in right field and 24 at catcher. Despite just 24 starts behind the plate, Custons threw out 14 base runners attempting to steal, good for a 48.3 percent throw-out rate.
Custons was one of two players from the MWC to make the team, joining TCU left-hander Matt Purke. Custons is currently playing summer ball for the Eau Claire Express (Eau Claire, Wisc.) in the Northwoods League.
