Okey First-Team Preseason A-A

CLEMSON, S.C. – Junior catcher Chris Okey (Mount Dora, Fla.) was named a preseason first-team All-American by Perfect Game on Monday. Okey batted .315 with 16 doubles, 12 homers, 57 RBIs and three steals in starting all 61 games at catcher in 2015.

Okey is coming off a first-team All-America season in 2015, becoming Clemson’s first All-America catcher since 1997 (Matthew LeCroy). He led the 2015 squad in homers, total bases and slugging percentage. After the season, he played for the USA Collegiate National Team for the second summer in a row.

Okey and the Tigers begin the 2016 season on February 19 against Maine at Doug Kingsmore Stadium.
