On the year, Boldt led the Huskers in runs scored (47), triples (6) and stolen bases (7). He was third on the team in hits (74) and knocked in 20 of his 31 RBIs with two outs.

Boldt hit .462 in the postseason and led the Huskers in hits (6) and runs (5) during the Stillwater Regional. HeĀ is the 12th Husker freshman since 2000 to earn freshman All-America honors.

Wichita State pitcher Sam Tewes was also a freshman All-American selection. Tewes, a Waverly graduate, was 8-3 with a 3.27 ERA. The right-hander led the team in victories and games started, and finished third in innings pitched and strikeouts.
