CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Kyle Teel and Connelly Early were named National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBA) First Team All-Americans on Wednesday (June 14). For the second-straight season, Jake Gelof was selected as an All-American at third base, earning second team honors in 2023.

Virginia was one of six schools (Florida, Stanford, LSU, Clemson & Wake Forest) to have multiple first team selections and was one of three programs (LSU, Stanford) with both a position player and a pitcher. Virginia has been represented on the NCBWA All-America team each of the last three seasons. It marks on the second time in program history (2010) UVA has sported two first teamers on the organization’s All-America squad.

Kyle Teel, a semifinalist for the Dick Howser Trophy annually awarded by the NCBWA, is batting .417 (105-for-251) with 67 runs scored, 25 doubles, 13 homers and 69 RBI. He was voted the ACC Player of the Year and is one of three finalists for the Buster Posey National Collegiate Catcher of the Year Award. Teel has established single-season school records in hits (105) and doubles (25) in 2023.

Connelly Early garnered All-America honors for the first time in his career. The lefthander is 12-2 with a 3.06 ERA in 82.1 innings pitched this season. He has fanned 98 batters while walking only 20 in 18 appearances on the mound. In two postseason starts, he’s allowed two earned runs in 13 innings pitched and was named the NCAA Charlottesville Regional Most Outstanding Player. The 12 wins in 2023 are tied for the most ever in a single season by a UVA pitcher.

Gelof, a third team honoree last season, becomes UVA’s fourth, two-time NCBWA All-American joining Adam Haseley (2016, 2017), Matt Thaiss (2015, 2016) and Danny Hultzen (2009, 2010, 2011). Gelof broke UVA’s single-season home run record with 23 and eclipsed his own single-season RBI record with 89 in 2023. Gelof is UVA’s career leader in home runs (48) and RBI (185).
