Whiting and Johnson Earn All-American Accolades

Senior second baseman Logan Johnson and senior center fielder Boomer Whiting became just the fourth and fifth Cardinals to be selected to an All-American team when they were named Third-Team All-Americans by Collegiate Baseball on Wednesday.

The duo join Mark Jurich, Dan Kopriva and Jim LaFountain to make up the elite group of five.

Johnson, Louisville's all-time doubles leader with 65, set another school-record with 26 two-baggers this season. The Owensboro native also set a school-record by being hit by a pitch 26 times this season, and his 68 career plunks ranks 6th in NCAA history.

Whiting is the nation's leader in steals, swiping 69 bases in 80 attempts. He also holds both the career (107) and single-season (69) records in the category at U of L. Earlier this season, the leadoff hitter posted a career-best 19-game hit streak, the fourth-longest in U of L history.

Both players were First-Team All-Big East performers.
