STARKVILLE, Miss. - The preseason accolades continued Thursday for Mississippi State junior shortstop Adam Frazier. The Bishop, Ga., native was among 14 players from the Southeastern Conference accorded first, second or third-team honors on the Baseball America 2013 Preseason All-America Team.

Frazier was a third-team selection on the squad compiled in a poll of Major League Baseball scouting directors.

It's the fifth preseason all-America team honor for Frazier, the MVP of MSU's championship run in last year's SEC Tournament and a member of the 2012 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team. Frazier set the pace at the plate for State and ranked third in the SEC with 91 hits and a .371 batting average. The Bulldog shortstop also starred on defense for the Diamond Dogs, leading the SEC with 227 assists and assisting with 51 of MSU's NCAA-leading 71 double plays.

MSU has three intrasquad games set this weekend at Dudy Noble Field (Friday at 4:30, Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1:30 p.m.) as the Bulldogs prepare for a season-opening four-game series against the Portland Pilots Feb. 15-17. State, ranked fifth in Baseball America's preseason poll, plays its first 19 and 23 of its first 24 games at Dudy Noble Field.
