CHARLESTON, S.C. – College of Charleston freshman Carl Wise was named to the Perfect Game Freshman All-America Second Team, the publication announced Monday evening.
The honor marks the third organization to select Wise to its freshman All-America team after the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) and Baseball America chose Wise earlier this summer.
The corner infielder finished second on the team with a .321 batting average and led the Cougars with 10 home runs despite only starting 38 games. His .606 slugging percentage ranked seventh in the league and 39th in the nation, while his team-best .453 on-base percentage ranked fifth among SoCon foes.
Wise saved his best work for the end of the season, knocking five homers and totaling 12 RBIs in the final five games of the season. He was a perfect four-for-four with four runs, four RBI, two home runs and a double in CofC’s final game in the Southern Conference Tournament.
A native of Lexington, S.C., he has been playing summer ball with teammate Blake Butler, knocking in 11 RBIs and posting a slugging percentage of .411 for the Forest City Owls of the Coastal Plain League.
