Semifinalists announced for Brooks Wallace Award
ACC, SEC continue to dominate watch list for nation's top shortstop

 

LUBBOCK, Texas -- The Southeastern Conference dominated the bids for NCAA regional play with 10 teams, and it also, along with the Atlantic Coast Conference, dominates the semifinalist list for the Brooks Wallace Shortstop of the Year Award.

The Brooks Wallace Award, sponsored by Mizuno, recognizes the nation's top shortstop and will be presented during the National College Baseball Hall of Fame's Night of Champions on June 28 in Lubbock, Texas.

"The players from these two conferences have stood out throughout the season," said Tyler Young, Wallace Award co-chair. "To have six players from these two conferences consistently make it through the selection process is quite remarkable."

Vanderbilt's Vince Conde and Mercer's Michael Massi both have the best fielding percentage among the semifinalists at .982. Conde also has a .306 batting average with nine doubles, one triple, four home runs and 43 RBIs. Massi has a .346 average with 13 doubles, two triples and five home runs.

Tennessee Tech's Dylan Bosheers leads in several offensive categories, including batting average (.368), home runs (11) and RBIs (56).

North Carolina's Michael Russell leads the semifinalists in doubles with 19.

"Each of these players has recorded great statistics all season," said Larry Wallace, award co-chair. "They each bring something to the table and will make the selection of the three finalists difficult."
