USC baseball players earn preseason honors

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Several Gamecock baseball players have earned preseason honors.

Sophomore catcher Grayson Greiner, senior left-handed pitcher Tyler Webb, senior right-handed pitcher Colby Holmes and sophomore left-handed pitcher Jordan Montgomery have been named to the 2013 Louisville Slugger Preseason All-America team as announced by Collegiate Baseball Friday.  Greiner was a second-team selection with Holmes, Montgomery and Webb named to the third team. 

Greiner returns after earning Freshman All-America honors last season by Collegiate Baseball.  He was a SEC All-Freshman selection and hit six homers and 13 doubles with 32 RBI.

Webb, who garnered second-team Preseason All-America honors earlier in the month from the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, went 6-1 with a 1.56 ERA last year in 39 relief appearances.

Montgomery and Holmes both were starters last season.  Montgomery went 6-1 with a 3.62 ERA in 74.2 innings with Holmes going 7-2 with a 3.05 ERA in 79.2 innings.  Montgomery also earned Freshman All-America honors last years.

South Carolina is ranked No. 7 in the nation in the Collegiate Baseball Preseason Top 40 announced Thursday. 

The Gamecocks begin the 2013 season Feb. 15 hosting a three-game series against Liberty.
