1990 All-Americans included 2x All-Star Aaron Sele.

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]

The NCAA recognizes two different All-America selectors for the 1990 college baseball season: the American Baseball Coaches Association (since 1947) and Baseball America (since 1981).[2]
