Kivett, King, Fisher Honored by ABCA

Ross Kivett picked up his third All-American honor this season after the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) named him a second team All-American.

Kivett was joined by Jared King and Austin Fisher on the ABCA All-Midwest Region team. Fisher and Kivett were first team all-region while King was second team all-region. The three Wildcats were the most to be honored by the ABCA in a single season in school history.

Kivett has also been named an All-American by Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball. His three All-American designations are the most by a K-State player since A.J. Morris racked up six in 2009. Kivett hit .360 this season with three home runs and 39 RBI’s on his way to being named the Big 12 Player of the Year.

K-State is still waiting to hear if Kivett will sign with the Cleveland Indians and go pro after being taken in the 10th round of last week’s MLB draft. He has one year of eligibility remaining at K-State.

Jared King has decided to sign with the New York Mets and forgo his final season of eligibility at K-State. King was a 5th round draft pick and will start his minor league career with the Brooklyn Cyclones.
