Bogenpohl Adds Freshman All-America Honors from Baseball America

SPRINGFIELD – Caden Bogenpohl continued to rack up Freshman All-America honors Monday when Baseball America named him to its First Team. The Missouri State outfielder has also received the distinction from D1Baseball (First Team) and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (Second Team).
Bogenpohl set Missouri State freshman records for home runs (20) and walks (53) in 2024, breaking the marks held by Ryan Howard and Spencer Nivens, respectively. His home run total ranked fourth nationally among freshmen and his walk total ranked second in that group this season.
The Jackson, Mo., native is the 12th Bear to hit 20 long balls in a season, while his walk total ranked second overall at MSU behind only Dylan Becker’s 55 free passes in 2015.
An honorable mention all-Missouri Valley Conference selection, Bogenpohl hit .293 with a .639 slugging percentage and team-high .446 OBP on the year, driving in 45 while scoring a team-best 62 runs. He also had a trio of two-homer games and led off three different games with a home run.
Bogenpohl’s selection gives the Bears four Freshman All-Americans in the last three seasons.
