Cherokee senior Cody Ege has been named to the honorable mention pre-season All-America High School Baseball Team in the Louisville Slugger Baseball American magazine.

In his junior year Ege batted .477 with four home runs and 30 rbi for the Cherokee Braves, who went 26-4 and advanced to the semifinals of the Class 2A State Tournament. He had two triples, eight doubles, and a .756 slugging percentage.

Ege played first base and pitched for Cherokee and was 9-1 on the mound with a miniscule 0.22 ERA and 115 strikeouts. Opponents batted just .149 against him.

Ege has signed a letter of intent to play baseball at the University of Louisville, joining former Brave Matt Koch on the Cardinals. Koch graduated last year and is a pitcher for Louisville.

Cody's older brother Cory Ege and Koch also were previously honored by the magazine.
