COLUMBIA - Former South Carolina catcher Grayson Greiner was named a second-team All-American by Perfect Game USA on Tuesday.
Greiner batted .311 last season while leading the Gamecocks with 50 RBIs, eight home runs and 13 doubles. He added 39 runs, second-highest on the team.
Perhaps even more impressive was Greiner's defense behind the plate. His .995 fielding percentage earned him a spot on the SEC All-Defensive team.
The distinction added to what has been a long list of postseason accolades. Greiner also was named second-team All-American by Baseball America. Oddly, he was passed over on the All-SEC first and second teams, but he's now made All-American lists twice.
Greiner was drafted in the third round by the Detroit Tigers in the MLB Draft earlier this month. He signed with the Tigers last week, deciding to forego his senior season.
