MSU Baseball Eagles junior outfielder Niko Hulsizer (left), junior infielder Reid Leonard (center) and infielder Braxton Morris (18) (right) were tabbed preseason All-Americans. Hulsizer (First Team), along with Leonard and Morris (Third Team), were selected to Collegiate Baseball’s Preseason All-American list. MSU was one of just three schools nationally to have three players on Collegiate Baseball’s All-American teams.
In 2017, Hulsizer was also named a preseason All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writer’s Association, Athlon Sports, Street and Smith’s, D1Baseball.com, Perfect Game/Rawlings and Collegiate Sports Madness.
Hulsizer was drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 18th round of the 2018 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft. He’s the seventh draft pick under head coach Mike McGuire’s (96) tenure.
