CSU-Pueblo's Fobes Named All-American

CSU-Pueblo outfielder Jason Fobes (Sr., Longmont, Colo.) has been named a first-team All-American on the Daktronics Division II Baseball all-American team, Daktronics announced Friday.

Fobes, who hit .474 in 2009, the second-highest single season batting average in CSU-Pueblo history, finished sixth in the nation in batting and sixth in the nation in doubles with 27. He anchored a CSU-Pueblo lineup that led the nation in runs scored, hits, doubles and triples.

Fobes was selected as the top outfielder in the nation in the Daktronics voting, receiving more votes at his position than any other outfielder in the country.

Fobes becomes the first CSU-Pueblo player since 2004 to be named a first-team all-American. In 2004, Tony Wittmus was named a first-team selection to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Division II first team, as well as the Baseball American Small College all-American team.

Fobes was named a first-team all-Central Region selection in both the Daktronics and ABCA all-region teams. The announcement of the ABCA all-American team will come within the next two weeks.
