From Francis Marion Patriots:

FLORENCE, SC– Francis Marion University senior outfielder Alex Lee has been named to the 2010 ESPN The Magazine® Academic All-America College Division baseball team.

Lee was named to the ten member second team and is the second Academic All-American in the history of the baseball program, joining 1980 pitcher Sammy Ward.  Lee is the third Patriot student-athlete to earn this type of national academic honor for 2009-10.

To be eligible for Academic All-America® consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at their current institution and be nominated by their sports information director.

On the diamond, Lee batted .314 this past season with 36 runs scored, nine doubles, two triples, five home runs, and 26 runs batted in. He compiled a .385 on-base percentage, was 8-of-12 in stolen bases, and recorded a .969 fielding percentage with three outfield assists.  He had 15 multi-hit games and six multi-RBIs games in 2010, while safely reaching base in 38 of 46 games.

He helped FMU to a 40-14 record and a second straight appearance in the NCAA Division II National Tournament.  The 40 victories is the second-highest season total in team history.

Lee went to Blythewood High School, where he earned All-State recognition.
