Burns, like most freshmen, wasn't a complete product last season. But the potential was all there. The fastball played up a big way, and while the breaking ball wasn't where it needs to be, it had potential. So, Thompson and the talented righty went to work and he managed to piece together an impressive campaign that ended with All-American honors. He had a half breaking ball some days, and others, it was a changeup. But he competed with his fastball. He has continued to develop his arsenal from last season, and I think he learned so much last year. We're really grateful, too, that Casey kind of took him under his wing.
In Burns' first start this season, he allowed a run on three hits in five innings, while also striking out seven and walking one. The next week against UCF, he paved the way to an important road series win with another strong performance, striking out seven, walking two and allowing a run on two hits in 5. And he's been even more dominant the last two weeks, striking out an insane 15 batters on the way to a complete game shutout against Cincinnati before punching out 10 and walking just one in seven innings in his most recent start against UTSA.
He got to watch a game or two and then pitch to teams. Now he's the one leading us off, and I think he's having success because of what he learned from those experiences. Mize's last year]. Casey's run last year for about the first eight weeks was about as good as anything I've ever seen," he continued. It's really hard to replace the first pick of the draft, so what Tanner has done so far this season is pretty special. Burns has taken his stuff to another level. He's still sitting in that low-to-mid 90s range with his fastball, but the evolution of his secondary offerings is evident.
He's still throwing that fastball with conviction but has begun to mimic his fastball grip to throw that slider, and that has led to a sharper offering. Furthermore, he continues to make strides with the changeup. He's sharing space with the two pitches and he can flip that breaking ball in there to get ahead in the count. It's just made him feel a lot more comfortable out there. He's also navigated the past two weekends without too much pressure. Just like he was the security blanket for Mize last season, sophomore lefthander Jack Owen has evolved into a security blanket for Burns.
He was inserted into the weekend rotation after the UCF series and has been out of this world, striking out 29 and walking just two, while having yet to allow a run in Burns might very well have his ups and downs in SEC play, like most premier pitchers do.
But his run through the first four weeks has been remarkable. Presented in partnership with the Rod Dedeaux Foundation, the Golden Spikes Award honors the top amateur baseball player in the United States based on their athletic ability, sportsmanship, character and overall contribution to the sport. The switch-hitting catcher managed the pitching staff for the Beavers to a 3. A consensus first-team All-American, he was selected with the number one overall pick by the Baltimore Orioles in the Major League Baseball Draft, making him the first Golden Spikes Award winner to be taken first overall since Bryce Harper in Of the 41 previous winners, five have earned Rookie of the Year honors, two have won the Cy Young, three were named MVP and 10 have won a World Series championship as a player or manager, combining for a total of 16 championships.
In addition, 18 previous winners have made one or more All-Star Game appearances as a player or manager, combining for 56 total selections.
We look forward to celebrating their achievements with them and their families, and naming the forty-second Golden Spikes Award winner in Omaha. Currently ranked in the top 10 of five offensive categories in the NCAA, Bleday leads the nation in home runs 26 , is second in home runs per game. The switch-hitting catcher also manages the pitching staff for the Beavers-who currently ranks second in the country in Team ERA 2.
Additionally, he ranks fourth in batting average. Navy right-hander Noah Song pieced together a record-breaking senior season where he was named the Patriot League Pitcher of the Year, set three program records in Annapolis and was named the first-ever Golden Spikes Award finalist in Navy history. He currently owns the career wins record 32 and holds a share of the program record for career shutouts 9. Additionally, his career strikeouts are both a Navy and a Patriot League record.
Song leads the nation in three pitching categories, including strikeouts with which also broke a year-old Navy record for strikeouts in a single season-wins 11 and strikeouts per nine-innings He also ranks second in the nation in complete games 6 , sixth in ERA 1. Andrew Vaughn followed his Golden Spikes Award-winning sophomore season with another outstanding year in Berkeley, being named to the All-Pac team for the second straight year. He currently ranks second in the nation for walks per game 1. Vaughn is the second California Golden Bear to be named a finalist for the Golden Spikes Award, joining Lance Blankenship who was named a finalist in Vaughn is the 17th amateur baseball player to be named a Golden Spikes Award finalist for a second time and is the first since David Price earned back-to-back finalist recognitions in and The California first baseman joins Jim Abbott and Mark Kotsay as the only previous winners to be named a finalist again the year after winning the award; but, he will look to become the first-ever athlete to be named the Golden Spikes Award winner for a second time.
A final ballot will be sent to the Golden Spikes Award voting body consisting of national baseball media, select professional baseball personnel, previous Golden Spikes Award winners and select USA Baseball staff, totaling a group of over voters. From Wednesday, May 29, through Monday, June 10, the voting body will cast their final vote for the Golden Spikes Award winner and fan voting will simultaneously be open on GoldenSpikesAward.
Selections made by the voting body will carry a 95 percent weight of each athlete's total, while fan votes will account for the remaining five percent. Right away, Bruins coach John Savage decided that Garcia's best position was pitcher. This year, he has been even more dominant: with a 1. In 69 innings, Garcia has allowed just 38 hits. Garcia's parents, Edgar and Liz, have known each other since elementary school, and they were baseball teammates in middle school.
Liz made her high school baseball freshman team - against boys - but opted to play varsity softball instead. Edgar and Liz became high school sweethearts, and he had a scholarship offer to play baseball as a catcher for Cal State Northridge. But Liz, who was in college at the time, became pregnant with Ryan just before Edgar graduated high school.
How a Utah coach responded after two boys on his lacrosse team died by suicide
That was the end of Edgar's baseball career. He went to work to support his growing family, and he and Liz married one year after Ryan was born.
Edgar and Liz have another child, Dylan, 12, who is also an aspiring baseball player. Meanwhile, Ryan, who is California-born but has Mexican heritage on his father's side, didn't really get serious about pitching until he got to UCLA. Bruins catcher Will McInerny, a fellow junior, remembers the first time he caught Garcia in the fall of And with his history as a hitter, he trusts his pitches. He knows how hard it is to hit. Garcia started this season on the sidelines with an injury to his right forearm. He made his season debut on March 9 as a middle reliever, pitching one scoreless inning against Oklahoma State.
In that win over Utah, he became the first Bruins pitcher to throw a complete game since and the first since Bauer in to get 14 strikeouts. He threw a two-hitter, requiring just pitches and allowing three baserunners, including one walk. But, on Fridays, it is an important task to set the tone for the weekend. Garcia has done that for the Bruins, who are - including away from home - and have won eight straight games.
Garcia said he gets far more nervous during media interviews than he does when he's staring at a batter from a distance of 60 feet, six inches. But even though he doesn't wear his emotions on his Bruins jersey, he didn't get this far without being competitive. An example of that comes out when asked about his size - he is a 6-foot, pounder, which is smaller than most top prospects at his position.
Garcia gets batters out by having a superior mix of four pitches: a four-seam fastball that ranges between mph; an slider with sharp, late tilt; a mids changeup and a curve. As a hitter, you think you are on time … but you're late. Guys start the game against him in a groove, and, by the end, they're in a slump. After not getting drafted out of high school, Garcia is projected to go in the top four rounds next month.
In fact, a selection in the top two rounds would not be a surprise, given his success this season. Savage, who led UCLA to its only College World Series title in and may have the horses to do it again this year, said he is not surprised at how Garcia has developed. He was a high school shortstop with a terrific arm.
We had him at our camp, and he had a clean delivery. The way the ball came out of his hand, it wasn't hard to see he could be a legit pitcher in our program. Garcia's career record at UCLA is In two years as a starter, he is , 1. In addition, he pitched in Cape Cod for the first time last summer, and he was an all-star for the league champs, going , 1. He also finished the summer with a streak of 25 consecutive innings without allowing an earned run. He still hasn't hit his ceiling, and that's what's most exciting. ELON, N. But Elon's George Kirby is no thumber - he's one of the premier power arms in college baseball.
Kirby also has strikeouts and has held batters to a. Kirby ranks fifth nationally with a 0. He's a command guy, kind of what you see from a mid-major Friday or Saturday guy who's a mid-to-uppers guy, and he's doing it at And beyond that, he's doing it probably better than most ever do it. The combination of plus fastball velocity, an ideal pitcher's frame at 6-foot-4, pounds, and elite strike-throwing ability gives Kirby perhaps a better combination of a high floor and a high ceiling than any other pitcher in the draft class. In his final regular-season start Sunday against UNC Wilmington, Kirby came out of the chute sitting at 96 mph with his fastball and bumped He pitched comfortably at and touched 96 repeatedly over the first four innings, and he didn't throw a fastball below 93 mph in his five excellent innings of work, before Elon pulled him at the pitch mark to get him a little extra rest heading into the conference tournament and hopefully the NCAA tournament.
It was typical Kirby dominance: he allowed just one unearned run on two hits while striking out nine - and walking none, as usual. For most college pitchers, learning to pound the strike zone is paramount. Kirby, however, has had to learn to expand the zone more often. Kirby showed good control as a sophomore too, going , 2. But he's gotten better across the board as a junior. I expect to do this well every time I go out," Kirby said. The pitch calling helps me a lot to expand, so I just try to hit those spots, keep it out of the zone.
I didn't really change anything mechanically, I just tried to add more flow in my delivery. I changed the way I step back, I'm a little quicker to the plate now, which has helped me in the flow of the game, staying consistent. Kirby took an important step forward last summer in the Cape Cod League, where he posted a 1.

He said he enjoyed the closer role last summer, and he gained confidence from facing the best hitters in college baseball day-in and day-out. He also worked hard to improve his changeup and slider in the summer and throughout the fall. Kirby's calling card remains that electric fastball, which served as the putaway pitch on eight of his nine strikeouts against UNCW. But he has refined his secondary stuff to the point that he now feels comfortable mixing with four quality pitches. His mph straight changeup has been his best secondary pitch for most of his collegiate career, and he threw it with good arm speed against the Seahawks, helping him get ahead of hitters early in counts.
He also excels at throwing his mph curveball as a backdoor strike against lefties. It's not a hammer, but he has developed it to the point that he can get occasional swing-and-misses with it, as he did Sunday against Riley Zayicek, who struck out on the pitch. Now we can give any assortment of pitches early in the AB and finish them whichever way we see fit late in the AB. The biggest difference from last year is the development of Kirby's slider, an mph offering that flashes solid-average.
That's become an important weapon for him, as he has learned to throw it harder, with more intent, as he put it. Some days he'd have it and would be able to throw a couple, and other days it just wouldn't be there," McGrath said. Man, he's hammered away at it in bullpens and game plan, and it's taken shape. But he went from fastball-changeup with a show-me breaking ball, to now he can put people away with four different pitches.
Kirby and fellow junior righthander Kyle Brnovich form one of the best one-two pitching duos in college baseball, giving Elon a chance to beat any team in America in a weekend series. They have two very different styles - Brnovich pitches heavily off his devastating slider, one of the best in the country, while Kirby lives off that fastball - but they complement each other well. They also have a healthy competitive relationship; last year Kirby pitched on Friday and Brnovich went , 1.
This year, Brnovich is , 3. But we definitely do push each other a little bit, because Friday-Saturday, either of us could really have the Friday spot. So we're both competing with each other, and it's good to be competitive when you're good friends. Kirby places great value in being a model teammate and helping Elon's young arms improve. He's soft-spoken and even-keeled, and he isn't afraid to offer teammates some insights. Teammates love him. They know not to bother him too much on game day, but you won't to be able to tell, 'Oh, that's George Kirby.
The guys take to him.
The other thing he's been really, really good at is he's been a great leader, whether it be allowing young guys to watch his bullpens and allowing them to take something from him, or he'll sit down with guys and talk about how he thinks about using his lower half, or his thoughts on certain pitches, where to execute, how to execute. He's done as much developing as I have with those freshman and sophomore arms, in terms of getting in touch with them and making sure in his catch play that he's a good example for others. He's diligent, and I think he's helped some buy-in, and other guys carry themselves pretty similarly.
I think having McGrath down there, we're both on the same page, so if I have something to say he'll let me say it, and he usually agrees with it. I think just giving my advice has helped them get a little more confidence on the mound, and I think it's shown. The past couple weeks the younger guys have gone out and done pretty well. After going in CAA play to run away with the regular-season title, Elon is now focused on winning the automatic bid that goes to the conference tournament champion, and getting the program back to regionals for the first time since With Kirby and Brnovich leading the way, and talented sophomore Jared Wetherbee rounding out the rotation with flame-thrower Ty Adcock anchoring the back of the bullpen, the Phoenix have the pitching firepower to make some serious noise in the postseason.
And Elon's progression over the last three years has been very gratifying for Kirby, as you might imagine.
Last year we got bumped out in the semis. So I'm just glad we're making progress every year," Kirby said. You see we just dominated the CAA this year, so it was pretty fun to watch. The list of semifinalists spans 20 different colleges and universities, one high school and nine NCAA conferences. Since USA Baseball introduced semifinalists to the voting process in , Rutledge is the fourth semifinalist from the junior college ranks while Witt is the first-ever high school student athlete to earn this honor.

Sikkema, Jr. Horner skipped the minor league ranks entirely, becoming just the thirteenth player to do so in the decade, and went straight to the Major Leagues where he homered off of current Hall of Fame pitcher Bert Blyleven in his Major League debut.
He played 10 years in the show, including nine with the Braves and one season with the St. Louis Cardinals. While still with the Braves, he had four home runs in one game on July 6, , one of only 18 players to ever accomplish the feat. After McDonald was selected by the Orioles, he went on to become the second player from the Draft class to receive the call up the Majors.
He finished his career with a cumulative 3. The corner infielder and outfielder made his Major League debut in and played in the big leagues over the span of 12 years for seven teams.

Strasburg was selected by the Washington Nationals with the first pick and made his much-anticipated Major League debut against the Pittsburgh Pirates in , getting the win and striking out 14 in seven innings of work. Strasburg is currently in the middle of his tenth year in the Major Leagues, all with the Nationals. He has been named an All-Star four times.

A season is over and chapter closed, but much is still to come for the UCLA recruit. So the work doesn't stop. I'm just trying to work as hard as I can. That hard work has made him one of the top high school players in the country, one who will likely hear his name called early in the first round of the MLB Draft, less than a month away.
It would put a stamp on the last 11 months, an impressive run in which Carroll traveled the United States to play in different showcases and tournaments, as well as to Panama where he helped Team USA's 18U National Team win a gold medal in the Pan Am Championship. As part of the squad's offensive dominance, Carroll hit. An important time for many rising seniors, the summer and fall seasons served as a proving ground for Carroll.
