TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama senior right fielder Beau Hearod was a first-team selection as The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association announced its 13th annual 2003 All-America Division I baseball team on Tuesday afternoon.

In 62 games this season, Hearod batted .346 (80-for-231) with an SEC-leading 20 home runs and 82 RBI for the Crimson Tide.  In addition, the Jennings, La., native added 64 runs, 18 doubles, four triples and eight stolen bases.

He led the Crimson Tide in runs scored (64), triples (4), home runs (20), RBI (82) and slugging percentage (.719).

The 82 RBI tied Andy Phillips (1999) and Doug Duke (1986) for the third-highest total in school history.  In addition, Hearod is one of only five UA players with 80 or more RBI in a single season.

His home run total makes him just the 12th player in school history to hit 20 home runs in a season and the first since Aaron Clark hit 20 home runs in 2001.

A 2003 First-Team All-SEC selection, Hearod was drafted in the 10th round by the Houston Astros in last week’s Major League Baseball draft and will be assigned to the New York-Penn League and begin play within the next week.

In addition, Hearod was named to the 2003 Verizion Academic All-American Baseball Team for the second consecutive year.  The senior was a second-team selection after compiling a 3.62 GPA in Finance.  Hearod was a third-team selection as junior in 2002.
