On Tuesday morning, Texas Tech baseball third baseman Josh Jung was named to the 2019 Perfect Game/Rawlings Preseason All-American First Team.

The award marks the second of the preseason for the third baseman from as he was named to the 2019 Collegiate Baseball Newspaper Preseason First Team All-America team in December.

In 2018 Jung led the Big 12 in several offensive categories, including batting (.392 avg.), hits (103) and RBI (80). Jung also totaled 12 home runs, 17 doubles, a team-leading six triples and 69 runs scored in 2018.

Hoping for another trip to Omaha, Jung and the Red Raiders are set to open the 2019 campaign with a four-game series beginning on Friday, Feb. 15, against the Oregon Ducks at 2 p.m. from Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.
