Oregon St.'s Michael Conforto and Jace Fry headline a group of 5 Beavers named to the 2014 Pac-12 All-Confererence team. Left fielder and 3-slot hitter Conforto, who led the league in runs scored, with 50, and was second (to Davis) in home runs, was named the Player of the Year for the second year in a row, and Fry the Pitcher of the Year, after going 11-1, with a 1.43 ERA.

Other members of the Beavers' Pac-12 Championship team named to the 32 member All-Conference first team are right fielder and cleanup hitter Dylan Davis, who also made 5 pitching starts and DHed at times, centerfielder and leadoff hitter Jeff Hendrix, and left handed pitcher Ben Wetzler, who also went 11-1, and posted a nation best for a regular starter 0.76 ERA.

It's the first time in 11 years any team's entire outfield made the conference first team.

Fry and Hendrix were also named to the 10 member Pac-12 All Defensive Team.

Hendrix single-handedly compiled a quarter of the Pac-12 Network's choices for the best 12 defensive plays of the year, with his catches at Washington St., against Washington, and his over-the-wall home run rob at USC,

Caleb Hamilton also made the highlight package, at #4, with his diving catch against Oregon.

Freshman catcher Logan Ice and multi-purpose pitcher Scott Schultz, who served as both the Beavers' closer and at times a long reliever, as well as making 4 starts, both received Honorable Mention honors.

Washington was also well represented, after the Huskies finished second in the conference, with Lindsay Meggs named the Coach of the Year, and shortstop Erik Forgione the Defensive Player of the Year. 3 Huskies made the All-Conference team, and 3 the All-Defensive team.

California pitcher Cal Quantrill rounded out the premier awards, having been named the conference Freshman of the Year.
