1969 All-Americans included National College Baseball Hall of Fame Inductee Burt Hooten.

An All-American team is an honorary sports team composed of the best amateur players of a specific season for each team position—who in turn are given the honorific "All-America" and typically referred to as "All-American athletes", or simply "All-Americans". Although the honorees generally do not compete together as a unit, the term is used in U.S. team sports to refer to players who are selected by members of the national media. Walter Camp selected the first All-America team in the early days of American football in 1889.[1]

From 1947 to 1980, the American Baseball Coaches Association was the only All-American selector recognized by the NCAA.[2]
