Eleven different Hoosiers have now been named All-Americans on 13 occasions. Coach Smith has mentored five IU All-Americans including two-timers Josh Phegley (2008-2009) and Alex Dickerson (2010-11).

Schwarber became the third All-American backstop at IU, following in the footsteps of Josh Phegley (2008-09) and Ken St. Pierre (1974). Schwarber enters the College World Series atop five Big Ten statistical categories with 18 homeruns, a .674 slugging percentage, .468 on-base percentage, 63 runs scored and 149 total bases. The District V Player of the Year will also don the Stars & Stripes this summer, competing for USA Baseball’s 2013 Collegiate National Team.

DeMuth’s .389 batting average ranks in the top-15 nationally and is second-best in the Big Ten. He enters the College World Series 10 percentage points back of Illinois’ Justin Parr for the conference batting crown. DeMuth has clubbed 24 doubles, the second highest total in school history. He is the second IU third baseman named All-America after Vasili Spanos was in 2003.
