WALNUT CREEK, CALIF. - After a season in which he ranks in the league's Top 10 in seven different offensive categories, Cal junior catcher Andrew Knapp has been selected first-team All-Pac-12, it was announced today (May 29) by the conference office.

Voted by the Pac-12 baseball coaches, Knapp's selection to the all-conference team is the first of his career after batting a team-leading .350 (third in Pac-12) with a team-high 16 doubles, eight home runs and 41 RBI in 2013. He also hit a team-best .392 (20-for-51) with runners in scoring position.

Knapp currently ranks third in the Pac-12 in batting average (.350); fourth in home runs (eight), slugging percentage (.544) and on-base percentage (.434); fifth in doubles (16); sixth in total bases (112) and eighth in hits (72). He is projected to be a high round draft pick in the June 6 Major League Amateur Draft.

Other highlights this season for Knapp include hitting three-run homers against league foes Washington State and Oregon, and knocking in the game-winning RBI in the 11th inning versus Michigan in the 2013 season-opener.

Knapp, a first-team Preseason All-American in Baseball America, is the son of Mike Knapp, a standout catcher for the Golden Bears in 1985-86. Knapp's younger brother, Aaron, has signed a letter of intent and will join David Esquer's program in the fall of 2013.
