Building the Dam's All-Corvallis Regional Team

I haven't seen an official one of these yet, so I figured I'd make my own.

UC Irvine's Connor Spencer Was The Corvallis Regional's Most Outstanding Player
UC Irvine's Connor Spencer Was The Corvallis Regional's Most Outstanding Player

MOP: Connor Spencer, UC Irvine

Spencer scored five runs, drove in five RBI's, and batted a clean .400 on the weekend. The junior also scored what would prove to be the winning run in Monday's Regional championship against Oregon State.

Catcher: Logan Ice, Oregon State

Ice was inconsistent throughout the regular season but finally put it all together for the Regionals. He was brilliant behind the plate, making a huge catch and sweeping tag to cut down an Anteater runner at the plate on Sunday night. The freshman showed off his solid arm on a couple occasions and scored three runs.

First Baseman: Connor Spencer, UC Irvine

Second Baseman: A.J. Hernandez, UNLV

I respect a good defensive effort, and Hernandez brought it in UNLV's three games. He was a part of two huge double plays in an elimination game victory against North Dakota State, and he also scored the Rebels only run against the Beavers on Sunday.

Third Baseman: Taylor Sparks, UC Irvine

What did Sparks not do this weekend? He was Mr. Reliable for the Anteaters throughout their three wins.

Shortstop: Trever Morrison, Oregon State

Morrison did work in the nine hole for Oregon State, getting at least one hit in four of their five games.

Outfielders: Jeff Hendrix (Oregon State), Dylan Davis (Oregon State), Tim Colwell (North Dakota State)

Hendrix finished the weekend with four RBI's, two of which kept his team in Saturday's game against UC Irvine before the Anteaters exploded in the eighth inning. Davis' home run to left center field in the eighth inning of Friday's game put the Beavers into the winner's bracket.

Designated Hitter: Michael Howard (Oregon State)

Oregon State rotated the DH spot to a few different players, but Howard's two hits in Friday's win over the Bison gets him the nod.

Pitchers: Scott Schultz (Oregon State) and David Ernst (North Dakota State)

Schultz threw a complete game two-hitter in an elimination game win against the Anteaters on Sunday, in what was one of the finest performances on the mound all year. Ernst is also listed despite taking a loss on Friday. He struck out six and clutched up when he had to, continually frustrating Beaver batters until Davis finally broke through late.
