STARKVILLE, Miss. --- All-America team honors continue to mount for a trio of Mississippi State baseball players.

Junior outfielder Hunter Renfroe and sophomore relief ace Jonathan Holder Wednesday were first-team selections and sophomore relief man Ross Mitchell a second-team pick on the 2013 NCBWA Division I All-America Team announced Wednesday by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

Baseball America also announced its 2013 All-America Teams, with Renfroe among five SEC players named to the publication’s first unit and Jonathan Holder featured on BA’s second-team honor squad.

Renfroe, from Crystal Springs, Miss., a first-round draft pick of the San Diego Padres, has already been accorded first-team All-America Team honors by Collegiate baseball newspaper. Renfroe sports a .352 batting average with 58 RBI and shares the SEC lead with 15 home runs.

Holder, also a three-time All-American this spring, notched his SEC-leading 18th save Monday against Virginia to clinch the NCAA Charlottesville (Va.) Super Regional and MSU’s ninth berth in the NCAA College World Series. Holder, from Gulfport, Miss., sports a 2-0 record with a school-record 18 saves, a 1.17 earned run average and 81 strikeouts in 46 innings.

Mitchell, from Smyrna, Tenn., and the son of former Major League pitcher Charlie Mitchell, is 12-0 with two saves and a Southeastern Conference-best 1.35 earned run average.
