Unlike the last few years there are no truly dominate player in the mode of Drew Hedman and Derek David.  The same goes on the pitching side.

Baseball is not a game that builds character, it is a game that reveals it.

This... is a simple game. You throw the ball. You hit the ball. You catch the ball.  "There are three types of baseball players: those who make things happen, those who watch it happen, and those who wonder what happened."

Wooster's double play tandem Matthew Johnson &  Greg Van Horn probably deserve a mention as both are hitting over .450 with SLG %'s in the .800s, 6+ HRs and 14+ stolen bases

I was thinking about my next poll and as I quickly looked over the NCAA Stats, the players I listed jumped out as appearing in several statistical categories.

The last few years, the Player of the year question lacked the drama that this year offers.

Big Poppa mentioned Stefan Neece from Greenville, but Neece's numbers are actually better than that:

Neece - .505BA , 16 HR, 60 RBI, 1.126SLG, 9 SB, 38 BB, and 6 SO.  These numbers are only through 32 games thus far.  The other guys that you named with 14 HR and high RBI totals have played at least 37 already.

Riley Tincher is 10-0 for UW-Whitewater. Other numbers aren't gawdy, but 10-0 has to be worth something.

The Midwest has a lot of ball to play, so the numbers are a bit down relatively. Besides Tincher these are probably our best candidates so far.
Jeff Donovan (UW-Whitewater) 33 Games: .400 AVG, 9 HR, 53 RBI, 42 R, .736 SLG, .516 OBP
Cody Hallahan (Bethany Lutheran): 6-1, 1.86 ERA, 58 IP, 79 K, .179 opp. AVG

There is a terrific group of young men being mentioned; yet no one stands heads above another. When you look at stats you don't see the intangible factors that have helped and hurt them during the year (weather, field size, competition, etc.)

The real measure for me is can any of these terrific players; put their team on "their back" and take them to the CWS. In my mind that will identify the "Player/Pitcher of the Year."
