The Pac-12 has announced their year end All-Star list, and Oregon St.'s K.J. Harrison is the 2015 Freshman of the Year.

Harrison led the conference in RBIs. with 58, had 10 home runs, and hit .314 for the season.

Other "Of The Year" honors include Arizona's Scott Kingery, the conference's batting champion (with a .392 average) for the second year in a row, who also led the Pac-12 in runs scored, with 53, as the Player of the Year, and USC catcher Garrett Stubbs as the Defensive Player of the Year.

UCLA reliever David Berg, who led the conference in ERA at .073, and became only the 3rd player ever to be named to the All-Pac-8/10/12 first team 4 times (a list that started with Oregon St.'s Pete Rowe in 1974-77), edged the Beavers' Andrew Moore for the Pitcher of the Year honor.

UCLA Coach John Savage was named the Pac-12 Coach of the Year, after leading the Bruins to their 3rd conference title in 5 years, and the #1 National Seed in the NCAA Tournament.

The huge First Team list, which is 32 names long, includes Oregon St.'s Jeff Hendrix for the second time, and Drew Rasmussen, as well as Moore, who is also on the list for the second time, and Harrison.

Moore and Hendrix also made the much shorter, 0 player All-Defensive Team, Hendrix for the second time.

Kyle Nobach was the lone Beaver on the Honorable Mention list.
