The Webster University baseball team’s first baseman, sophomore Kyle Uhrich, has had an outstanding season that has brought him several postseason awards. Most recently, Uhrich has been named a 2015 All-American by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings, and a 2015 Honorable Mention All-American for d3baseball.com. He was a Second Team selection at first base.

Uhrich was previously named to the d3baseball.com Central All-Region First Team, the 2015 ABCA/Rawlings Central All-Region First Team, and was a St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference 2015 First Team All-Conference selection as well.

Uhrich set a Webster University single season record with 17 home runs so far this year, and currently is tied for the NCAA III lead in that category. He has batted .364, with 61 RBIs, 39 runs scored, and a .722 slugging percent on the season.  The 61 RBIs is the the third highest total in a single season for Webster.
