CINCINNATI — University of Cincinnati outfielder Justin Glass (Fort Wayne, Ind./Carroll) was named Thursday to the 2013 Preseason All-BIG EAST Conference Team, as voted by the league’s 11 head coaches.
Glass, a 6-foot-2 junior, was a 2012 All-BIG EAST First Team selection after he finished last season as one of six players among the BIG EAST leaders in batting average and steals. The left-handed slugger finished fourth in the conference with a .366 batting average, while his 15 stolen bases were tied for 11th.
His 83 hits are 13th all-time in the UC single-season record book, while his 21 doubles are tied for fourth. Nationally, his double and hit totals ranked 15th and 23rd, respectively, in all of NCAA Division I baseball.
Glass also finished in the BIG EAST Top 10 in several other categories after tying for second in hits and doubles, third in at-bats (227), sixth in total bases (115), and 10th in both slugging (.507) and total plate appearances (255).
Earlier in December, Glass was designated the first team captain for the Bearcats since 2010 when then-senior right-handed pitcher Tyler Smith held the title.
Following the winter break, the UC baseball team will resume full-squad practices in January in preparation for its season opener Feb. 15, 2013 at Florida Atlantic.
