Collegiate Baseball Stars-Outfield

As we've mentioned before, it is our opinion that the top two outfielders in the nation both play for Kentucky. Sawyer Carroll and Collin Cowgill continue to blow away the competition. Carroll is batting a menacing .406/.498/.726, while Cowgill has perhaps an even more impressive line at .378/.504/.740. Cowgill leads the Wildcats with 18 HRs, 43 BBs, and 19 SBs. Carroll leads the blue with 69 RBI and he has not been caught stealing in 10 attempts this season. Carroll's game is finely polished, which is reflected in the fact that he only has 27 strikeouts in 197 ABs to Cowgill's 37 in 196.
The third most impressive outfielder this season has been Tim Fedroff of North Carolina. Fedroff sports a line of .380/.448/.611, and while his power is no where near that of Carroll or Cowgill he leads the Tar Heels with 9 HRs. He has played a very solid outfield, a point that has not been lost with scouts.
Other outfielders that deserve recognition this season: Eric Thames-Pepperdine, Chris Shehan-Georgia Southern, Blake Tekotte-Miami, Aaron Luna-Rice, Randy Moley-St. Bonaventure, and Mike Bianucci-Auburn.
Next up, in our final installment, we will go to the hill and visit perhaps the most erratic group of them all, the pitchers.
