SALEM, VA — The Atlantic Coast Conference announced the All-ACC Baseball teams as well as the individual honorees for the 2004 baseball season Monday evening at the awards cookout at the Salem Civic Center in Salem, Virginia. Florida State junior shortstop Stephen Drew was named to the first team for the second straight year and was joined on the All-ACC first team by outfielder Eddy Martinez-Esteve. Senior second baseman Bryan Zech, freshman first baseman Ryne Malone and senior pitcher Rhett James earned All-ACC second team recognition.


As selected by a vote of the league’s nine head coaches, first-year head coach Brian O’Connor of Virginia was honored as Coach of the Year. The Cavaliers Joe Koshansky and Daniel Bard of North Carolina were named the Player of the Year and Freshman of the Year, respectively. In selecting the first and second All-ACC teams, Georgia Tech led all schools with six student-athletes. Florida State and North Carolina each placed a total of five members on the All-Conference teams, with Clemson, NC State and Virginia next with four.
