Logan Hofmann’s Northwestern State baseball career consisted of four starts and 28 innings pitched.
That sample size was enough for Hofmann to earn All-American honors earlier this year, and on Thursday, pick up an honor reserved for Canadian players in college baseball.
Hofmann, a native of Muenster, Saskatchewan, was named a first-team member of the 21st annual Canadian Baseball Network’s All-Canadian Team. A panel of 62 scouts, coaches, executives, former players, writers and broadcasters voted on the teams, which include any Canadian who played college baseball at the NCAA, NJCAA and NAIA levels.
In his lone season as a Demon before being drafted by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the fifth round of June’s Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, Hofmann went 4-0 with a 0.00 ERA across 28 innings, striking out 38 batters. He tied for the national lead in ERA, but no Division I pitcher threw more innings and posted a perfect ERA.
A 5-foot-10, 190-pounder, Hofmann was named second-team All-American by Collegiate Baseball Magazine before Pittsburgh selected him with the 138th selection in June’s draft.
