EAST LANSING, Mich. — Michigan State baseball was recognized with the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) Team Academic Excellence Award for the sixth-consecutive year.

The American Baseball Coaches Association recognized the nearly 700 member college and high school programs from across the country with the 2021-22 ABCA Team Academic Excellence Award, which is presented by Sports Attack. Teams from every level of college and high school baseball were honored with this year’s award, which highlights programs coached by ABCA members that posted a GPA of 3.0 or above on a 4.0 scale for the entire 2021-22 academic year.

Over 250 high school programs and more than 420 collegiate programs from the NCAA Div. I, II, III, NAIA, and Junior College levels were recognized.

“A special thank you goes out to our academic advisor Melissa Tallant, she does a phenomenal job and sets the tone academically for our guys and they do a great job of responding,” MSU head coach Jake Boss Jr. said. 

For the third-straight year, MSU registered a program-record GPA, posting a 3.518 in the Spring 2022 semester, after posting a 3.452 in Fall 2021 semester, for their highest cumulative GPA in program history with a 3.411.

“I’m proud to work with this dedicated group of student-athletes and coaching staff,” assistant director of MSU Student-Athlete Support Services Melissa Tallant said. “For them to continue to surpass program records time-and-time again, it’s an extra accomplishment for all their hard work and dedication to success in the classroom. To earn this award for the sixth year in a row shows their tremendous commitment to their academic success, and it’s a continued honor to work with them.”

Michigan State was one of six Big Ten teams on the 114-team Division I list, the most B1G teams in the last seven years of the ABCA’s records, with MSU the only team to have been on each of the six years. There were not any B1G teams in 2016, before the Spartans were joined by Minnesota in 2017, then MSU was the lone conference team in both 2018 and 2019. Illinois and Ohio State joined MSU on the 2020 season list, then Michigan State was joined by Illinois and Rutgers last season.
