Alabama shortstop Justin Lebron was named a Freshman All-American by D1baseball.com for his performance during the 2024 season, the website announced on Friday.

Lebron has been named a Freshman All-American on two other teams since the season concluded, the others being the NCBWA and Perfect Game. He was also named to the All-SEC first team, the SEC All-Freshman team, and the SEC All-Defensive team in his exceptional first collegiate season.

Lebron announced last month that he will be returning to Alabama for his sophomore season, immediately making him one of the best returning players in the conference and the cornerstone of Alabama's 2025 baseball roster.
