    Leader -

    Not only is Owings one of Tech's better arms, he's also the big bat in their lineup.

    Oh, and Eric Patterson, the younger brother of Cubs CF Corey Patterson is Owing's teammate at Tech

    Unlike one or two players that the Reds have taken, Levering looks like a bada**. :mhcky21:

    Here is his writeup:

    Senior 3B Matt Levering (#25, out of Chatfield HS) has been named First Team All-American by the ABCA. Also a First Team All-West Region (by both the ABCA and the NCBWA) and First Team All-RMAC honoree this spring, Levering was also selected as the 2004 RMAC Player of the Year. Levering, who was named to the this year's All-RMAC Tournament Team, finished the 2004 campaign hitting .507 with 107 hits, 71 runs, 22 doubles, eight triples, 15 HR, 87 RBI and a .900 slugging %. The Regis baseball team finished the season at 32-18 overall (16-8 RMAC).

    ECU'S Ryan Jones Named a Finalist for Dick Howser Trophy

    06/04/2004


    PICTURED: Ryan Jones (Photo by Kip Sloan)
    CHICAGO - East Carolina senior DH/OF Ryan Jones has been named as one of 10 finalists for the Dick Howser Trophy, given to collegiate baseball's top player. The National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, which works in association with the St. Petersburg Area Chamber of Commerce on the award, released the list of the 10 finalists for the trophy today. The membership of the NCBWA will choose the Dick Howser Trophy based on three rounds of voting. The 2004 winner will be announced at the College World Series in Omaha on Friday, June 18 at 9:30 a.m. CDT.

    Jones was named the 2004 Conference USA Player of the Year after hitting .409 heading into the conference tournament and finishing league play hitting .407 in conference. Currently, he leads the nation in slugging percentage (.834) with 46 of his 80 hits serving as extra-base hits including 24 doubles, four triples and 18 home runs for a team-high 66 RBI. Jones posted 24 multiple hit games and 14 multiple RBI games.

    On Thursday, Jones was named a first team All-American by Louisville Slugger/Collegiate Baseball.

    The other finalists include: Rutgers P Jeff Frazier, Nebraska 3B Alex Gordon, Ole Miss 1B/P Stephen Head, Texas P J.P. Howell, Rice P Philip Humber, Virginia UT Joe Koshansky, Stanford 2B Jed Lowrie, South Carolina C Landon Powell and Long Beach State P Jered Weaver.

    The Dick Howser Trophy, given in memory of the former Florida State University All-America shortstop and major league player and manager who died of brain cancer in 1987, is regarded by many as college baseball's most prestigious award.

    Criteria for consideration for the trophy include performance on the field, leadership, moral character and courage, qualities that were exemplified by Dick Howser's life.
    He just went to Oakland in the 22nd round.

    Detroit took Vince Berry out of Triton College in round 23. He's from Cincinnati.

    WOW. That Owings kid is GOOD with the Bat and on the mound. I hope he doesn't sign with Chicago.

    Also, NC Red, that Levering kid does look like a player. He hit over .500 this year

    From BA's Draft Blog:

    12:52 PM ET: Not Selling Jeans Redux
    The A's took a classic performance-oriented player in 5-foot-7 East Carolina DH Ryan Jones, who was leading the nation for most of the season in OPS. Jones also has ligament damange in his throwing elbow
    -- John Manuel

    NC Reds, there's why.

    In Round 24, the Reds take RHP Adam Gillahan out of Crowder College.

    Tons of guys getting drafted out of Lamar University in Texas, for some reason. And there's a batch of guys out of that Puerto Rico Baseball Academy

    Arizona takes a guy named Arthur Hendricks out of Harvard. Having fun isn't hard... when you've got a library card.

    Yep. I didn't know about the elbow. He looked taller when I saw him play too. :MandJ:
