Gelalich, Plutko Secure Baseball America All-America Honors

June 22, 2012

DURHAM, N.C. - UCLA's Jeff Gelalich has captured first-team All-America honors and Adam Plutko has secured third-team All-America acclaim by Baseball America, the national publication announced Friday.

Gelalich, who led the Bruins with a .351 batting average and 11 home runs in all 64 games, became UCLA's second first-team selection in as many years. Trevor Bauer earned first-team acclaim on the mound in 2011. Gelalich also registered 10 doubles, 48 RBI and 56 runs at the plate.

Gelalich, who hails from La Verne, Calif., becomes just the sixth UCLA ballplayer to earn first-team All-America honors from Baseball America. He was selected in the supplemental first round (No. 57 overall) of the 2012 MLB Draft by the Cincinnati Reds.

Plutko went 12-3 with a 2.48 ERA during his sophomore season, logging 99 strikeouts and 47 walks in 119.2 innings. He earned first-team Freshman All-America acclaim from Baseball America in 2011.

Plutko finished the season going 7-0 in his final seven starts (since May 5), logging a 0.89 ERA with a .180 opposing batting average in that span. He became the second pitcher in school history to have compiled at least four career postseason victories, tying a record previously established by Bauer.

UCLA went 48-16 in 2012, advancing to the College World Series for the second time in three seasons. The Bruins won the Pac-12 Conference title for the second consecutive year. UCLA tied with Arizona for the co-championship in 2012.
