CLEVELAND -- The Mid-American Conference announced its 2013 Baseball Academic All-MAC team June 28, as voted by faculty athletic representatives at MAC institutions. A total of 18 student-athletes were named to the team, including Western Michigan shortstop Andrew Sohn. Three other Broncos, Steve Buglione, Jared Kujawa and Theo Piccirilli were honorable mentions.

Sohn carried a 3.32 GPA as a sophomore, studying pre-business. He was the first Bronco shortstop to be named First Team All-MAC since 2005 and led WMU in nearly every offensive category, while ranking sixth in the MAC with a .337 batting average. Sohn also had a team-best 70 hits, nine doubles, two triples, two home runs, 36 RBIs, 89 total bases, a .428 slugging percentage, .389 on-base percentage and 17 stolen bases, going 17-for-19 in attempts. Defensively, he maintained a .947 fielding percentage.

The Academic All-MAC honor is for a student-athlete who has excelled in athletics and academics. To qualify, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.20 cumulative GPA and have participated in at least 50 percent of the contests for that particular sport. First-year students and junior college transfers in their first year of residence are not eligible for the award.
