Bonnies Baseball: Four Straight Seasons With An All-American

Bonnies Baseball: Four Straight Seasons With An All-American

St. Bonaventure baseball is the only Atlantic 10 program to have an All-America selection in each of the past four seasons.

Learn more about the impressive accomplishment below:


AARON PHILLIPS - 2017

Phillips was honored by as a Third Team American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings All-America selection following the 2017 season.

Phillips, who became the highest St. Bonaventure Major League Baseball Draft pick in program history when he was selected in the ninth round by the San Francisco Giants following his junior season, wrapped his final collegiate season by being named Atlantic 10 Pitcher of the Year. He tied the Bonnies all-time season wins record and led the A-10 with nine victories while also striking out 90 batters in 100.2 innings of work. He limited opponents to a .213 batting average against and posted a 3.04 ERA including two complete games.

In the career record book, he stands second in Bonnies ERA (3.17), tied ninth in wins (13), and 12th in strikeouts (156).


SAM FULLER - 2018 & 2019

Fuller earned CoSIDA Academic All-America honors in back-to-back seasons, picking up a spot on the Third Team as a junior in 2018 before taking First Team accolades as a senior in 2019.

One of three outfielders in the nation to receive First Team honors along with Nick Howie of Eastern Kentucky and Jayse McLean of North Dakota State, he was part of the 11-member First Team in 2019. 

A biology and history double major, Fuller owed a 3.97 cumulative GPA during his college career. He led the Bonnies and ranked in the Atlantic 10's top-15 in batting average (.325), on-base percentage (.433) and stolen bases (16) while pacing the league with seven triples to go along with nine doubles, one home run and 13 RBIs in 2019. He also led the Bonnies with 34 runs. Defensively, he started 42 games in center field and committed only one error during the entire season.


BRENDYN STILLMAN - 2020

Stillman picked up Second Team All-America accolades from the staff of Collegiate Baseball after leading the nation in batting average at .519. He was one of only two players in Division I to hit .500 or better this spring along with Samford's Brooks Carlson.

In a spring season shortened due to COVID-19, Stillman was atop nearly every national offensive stat category. He also led the country in slugging at an obscene 1.259 after smacking six home runs and two doubles in seven games. His on-base percentage of .594 also ranked fifth in the nation and he was second in home runs per game. In 27 at-bats, he compiled 14 hits, walked five times and struck out in just four plate appearances.

Stillman, in his first year with the program after transferring from Herkimer CC, was one of nine outfielders selected to the three Collegiate Baseball All-America teams. He was the only non-Power 5 outfielder to be picked to either the first or second team, joining standouts from Arkansas, Vanderbilt, Texas A&M, Virginia and Florida.
