HOESE, GACONI, JACKSON HIGHLIGHT 2019 ALL-LOUISIANA COLLEGE BASEBALL TEAM


Written for the LSWA

LAFAYETTE – Tulane’s Kody Hoese added another award to an already impressive postseason resume on Saturday as the All-American slugger was part of a group that was honored as the Louisiana Sports Writers Association (LSWA) released its 2019 All-Louisiana College Baseball Team.

The 28-member team was selected by a statewide panel of college baseball sports information directors and media members.

Hoese, the LSWA Hitter of the Year, was one of two members for the Green Wave to earn individual honors with Hudson Haskin tabbed as Freshman of the Year. Southeastern Louisiana’s Corey Gaconi was named Pitcher of the Year, ULM outfielder Trent Tingelstad was voted as the LSWA Newcomer of the Year and second-year skipper Kerrick Jackson of Southern was the overwhelming choice as the state’s Coach of the Year.

The fifth consensus All-American in Tulane baseball history and the first since Brian Bogusevic in 2005, Hoese had a triple crown season for the Green Wave, leading the team with a .391 average, 23 home runs and 61 RBI. He led the American Athletic Conference, and was ranked in the top-20 nationally, in seven offensive categories while his 23 home runs were the second-most in a single season in school history.

The 25th overall selection by the Los Angeles Dodgers in this month’s MLB Draft led Tulane with 28 multi-hit games and 17 games with multiple RBI. Hoese recorded a 19-game hitting streak during the season, became the first Tulane player to record five hits in a game in five years and tied the school-record for home runs in a game (3) in a 22-10 win over Lamar on Feb. 20.

Gaconi, a Metairie native and Brother Martin alum, added to his list of postseason accolades after being selected as the 2019 Southland Conference Pitcher of the Year and first-team Central All-Region.

The right-hander finished the year for the Lions with a 7-3 record and a 2.57 ERA, holding opponents to a .244 batting average while striking out 95 batters in 108.2 innings of work. Gaconi's control was his greatest asset, as he only walked 11 batters on the season, ranking among the Division I national leaders in strikeout-to-walk ratio (8.64, 4th) and walks allowed per nine innings (0.91, 5th).

Tingelstad, a junior from Marysville, Wash., led ULM with a .353 batting average while adding 19 doubles, four triples, seven home runs and 46 RBI. He capped his first season with the Warhawks with a strong showing at the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, which included a career-high seven RBIs in an 18-5 win over UT Arlington.

Haskin, a freshman All-America by both Collegiate Baseball and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, ended the season for the Green Wave with a .372 average with 77 hits, including 19 doubles, four triples and 10 home runs.

Against AAC foes, the New York City native finished with the second-highest batting average ever in the conference at .432, leading the league in hits with 38 and on-base percentage at .536, producing a five-hit game on the road at East Carolina with 10 total bases which were league individual game highs.

Faced with the monumental task of replacing a legend in the dugout in Roger Cador, all Jackson did in his second year was serve as the architect of a remarkable turnaround for the Jaguars, going from nine wins in 2018 to a 32-24 record and its first SWAC Baseball championship in a decade.

The SWAC Coach of the Year guided Southern to a 17-6 record in league play, claiming the program’s first divisional title since 2012, while landing six players on the All-SWAC team and producing the league’s Player of the Year (Tyler LaPorter).

Gaconi, one of three Southland Conference pitchers named to the first team, was joined by Northwestern State’s Nathan Jones, New Orleans closer Reeves Martin and Louisiana Tech’s Matt Miller.

Saul Garza of LSU served as the battery mate to the first-team pitching list with Hoese highlighting a first-team infield that included Louisiana Tech’s Mason Mallard (first base), Nate Fisbeck of McNeese (second base) and LSU shortstop Josh Smith.

LSU’s Antoine Duplantis, who broke Eddy Furniss’ school-record for hits in a career (359), was the lone repeat first-team selection and was joined in the outfield by Haskin and Southern’s Javeyan Williams. Logan Constantine of LSU Alexandria was a repeat selection as a utility player, after earning second-team honors in 2018, with Louisiana’s Todd Lott named as the first-team designated hitter.

The second team featured the first-ever selections for both two-year programs – LSU Eunice (pitcher Dane Dixon and outfielder Tristan Welch) and Bossier Parish Community College (catcher Adrian Minjares).

The McNeese duo of Aidan Anderson and freshman Will Dion, along with LSU Alexandria’s Clayton Doyle joined Dixon on the mound with Jordan Trahan of LSU Shreveport (first base), ULM’s Chad Bell (third base) and Louisiana’s middle infield duo of Hunter Kasuls (second base) and Hayden Cantrelle (shortstop) rounding out the infield.

Tingelstad was joined on the second team outfield by Welch and LSU’s Zach Watson – a 2018 second-team All-Louisiana pick. ULM’s Andrew Beesley was tabbed as a second-team utility player with Clayton Rasbeary of McNeese selected at designated hitter.

Honorable mention selections included the LSU tandem of Devin Fontenot (pitcher) and Cade Beloso (designated hitter), pitchers Andrew Sheridan of LSU Eunice and Braxton Smith of Louisiana Tech, Grambling catcher Drexler Macaay, outfielder Grant Mathews of Tulane, Louisiana College utility player Deauton Delgado and Loyola pitcher/outfielder Michael Toscano.
