Collegiate Baseball Stars-Backstop

When it comes to collegiate baseball's best backstop there's Buster Posey and then there's everyone else. Posey is batting an impressive .471/.570/.843 while leading #3 Florida State with 15 HRs and 62 RBI. There is serious talk that Posey could be taken with the number one pick by the Rays. While the young man has been extremely impressive behind the plate some scouts still wonder whether he will be able to stay behind the plate as he advances through the professional ranks. One thing is for certain however, Posey will be a force to be reckoned with wherever he may end up on the diamond. The concerns about his ultimate position will only impact his position in the draft and the timeliness of his promotions.
Other catchers that are having fine seasons include: Dock Doyle-Coastal Carolina, Luis Flores- Oklahoma St., and Ryan Lavarnway-Yale.
