1955 All-Americans included Chicago Cubs third baseman Don Eaddy.

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. From 1947 to 1980, the American Baseball Coaches Association was the only All-American selector recognized by the NCAA.[1]
