How many Texas A&M players made the College World Series All-Tournament team?


OMAHA, Neb. — Despite falling in the 2024 College World Series Finals to Tennessee, Texas A&M has a lot to be proud of from its run this season.

It was the first time the Aggies made it to the CWS Finals and they started the postseason 9-0.

A&M certainly would not have made it to the final game of the college baseball season had it not been for a lot of high-quality players making big plays throughout the postseason.

For their efforts, two players from the Aggies were selected to the CWS All-Tournament Team.

The Aggies had never placed a single player in the CWS All-Tournament team during their prior seven experiences in the tourney. This time around, A&M was represented by breakout infielder Kaeden Kent and All-American reliever Evan Aschenbeck.

Kent was integral to the Aggies’ successful postseason after taking over as an every game starter following an injury to All-American outfielder Braden Montgomery.

The lineup was shuffled around thanks to a lot of position versatility with the Aggies and he slotted in at second base. On top of some strong fielding moments, Kent came up with a huge three-hit, four-RBI performance in Game 1 of the CWS Finals.

For the entire CWS, Kent was 10-for-22 with 7 RBIs, one double and a home run.

Aschenbeck has been among the most dominant relievers in all of college baseball this season. After becoming the NCBWA Stopper of the Year, Aschenbeck continued to lock down opponents for the Aggies in the postseason.

Through four outings, Aschenbeck threw 10.2 innings with 15 strikeouts and just three runs allowed — all coming in the decisive Game 3 against the Volunteers.

The Aggies’ closer went multiple innings in all of his outings and was key to A&M remaining in the postseason until the final game of the college baseball season.
