Kean is FSU’s third D3baseball.com All-American in the last four years and first since Greg Ross was named a second-team selection in 2011.

A Millersville native, Kean was named to the All-CAC First Team and D3baseball.com All-South Region First Team. He is the second CAC Player of the Year for the Bobcats in the last three years.
