The Southeastern Conference postseason awards were released on Tuesday without much of a Florida presence. The Gators didn’t have a player on the first, second or defensive All-SEC team. Freshman outfielder Harrison Bader was named to the All-Freshman team, the only Florida player honored by the league for his play during the 2013 season.

Despite being a freshman, Harrison Bader was one of the most consistent contributors for Florida. He heads into the postseason hitting .304 with a .369 on-base percentage to go along with seven doubles, two triples and one home run. He was second on the team with 35 runs scored and led the Gators by going 14-for-19 in stolen bases.

Bader started all 30 of Florida’s SEC games and 55 of the team’s 57 total games.

The Gators have put at least one player on the All-Freshman team in each of Kevin O’Sullivan’s six seasons at Florida. The previous honorees are Josh Adams (2008), Preston Tucker (2009), Nolan Fontana (2010), Brian Johnson (2010), Austin Maddox (2010), Hudson Randall (2010), Mike Zunino (2010), Zack Powers (2011), Karsten Whitson (2011), and Josh Tobias (2012).

Florida returns to action in the first game of the Bloomington Regional on Friday at 1 p.m.
