USA Baseball Announces 2018 Women's National Team Staff

April 20, 2018

DURHAM, N.C. - On Friday, USA Baseball announced the coaching staff for the 2018 Women's National Team that will compete in the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) Women's Baseball World Cup from August 22-31 in Viera, Florida. Matt Weagle was named the team's manager and he will be joined on staff by five-time Women's National Team alum Veronica Alvarez, Cody Kauffman and Ernie May.

2018 will be Weagle's fifth year working with the Women's National Team program, including serving as the pitching coach for the team that won gold at the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games. Additionally, he was the pitching coach for the 2016 Women's National Team, the 2015 Pan Am Games Qualifier team and the 2014 team that won a silver medal at the WBSC Women's Baseball World Cup in Miyazaki, Japan. Under his direction, teams held a 2.07 and 2.16 ERA in 2014 and 2015, respectively, and a 1.29 ERA in 2016.

"I am very honored to represent the United States and Team USA, and I look forward to fielding a highly competitive team for the World Cup this summer," Weagle said. "That this event is being played in the U.S. is a significant milestone in the evolution of women's baseball in this country and I couldn't be more proud and excited to manage these athletes who have had such a positive impact on this growing sport."

Weagle most recently served as the Field Coordinator for the 2017 Women's National Team Development Program (NTDP) that was held at the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy in Washington, D.C. In addition, he has served on numerous other Women's NTDP, Women's National Open and Women's National Team Trials staffs over his career with USA Baseball. Currently in his fifth season as the pitching coach at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Weagle pitched at Franklin Pierce University from 2000-2003 before being drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the sixth round of the 2003 MLB Amateur Draft.

"We could not be more excited to not only have this prestigious event on our home soil for the first time, but also to have Matt Weagle and this group of incredibly talented coaches leading the 2018 Women's National Team," USA Baseball Executive Director and CEO, Paul Seiler, said. "The experience and knowledge Matt brings to this program is unmatched and we cannot wait to watch as this staff leads the 2018 team in its pursuit of a world championship."

Alvarez, who will serve as Team USA's pitching coach, is making her national team coaching debut for USA Baseball in 2018 after five years as a player. Alvarez started her career with the red, white and blue in 2008 and every team she participated on medaled in international competition. She won two bronze medals as a member of the 2008 and 2010 Women's National Teams before winning a silver medal in 2012 and a gold medal at the Toronto 2015 Pan American Games.

Previously, she served as a coach for the Women's National Team Identification Series, and she continues to help grow the next generation of female baseball players as a coach at the 2017 and 2018 Trailblazer Series and the upcoming 2018 Girls Baseball Breakthrough Series Showcase & Development Camp.

Kauffman will join the staff as an assistant coach in 2018 after coaching at the 2017 Women's NTDP. Currently in his third season as an assistant coach at Franklin Pierce University, Kauffman previously worked in the USA Baseball organization as an operations coordinator for the 2014 Collegiate National Team and the director of the 12U National Team in 2015, which went on to claim the WBSC U-12 Baseball World Cup gold medal. He played baseball at Franklin Pierce University in 2009 and 2010, where he was selected to the East Regional All-Tournament team in 2010; and later served as a graduate assistant for the Ravens while earning his master's degree. Kauffman also spent time working in baseball operations for the Chicago Cubs minor league system in 2012 and 2013.

Rounding out the staff is May, who will also serve in an assistant coach role for the 2018 team. A member of the 2017 Women's NTDP coaching staff, he has also coached at several Women's National Team Trials and Women's National Open events. He is in his second year as the head coach at Dean College and has worked at the high school, collegiate and minor league levels throughout his career. He is also currently working toward his Doctorate in Education Leadership and Management from Drexel University. May started his collegiate coaching career as an assistant coach at Springfield College before moving on to a position in the Atlanta Braves front office, followed by coaching posts at Wofford College, UMass-Amherst, Trinity College, Northland College and Harvard University. While at the helm of Northland College, he was named the 2014 Upper Midwest Athletic Conference Coach of the Year.

Like Alvarez, Kauffman and May are both making their national team coaching debuts for USA Baseball in 2018.

The 2018 Women's National Team identification process will begin with the Women's National Open that will take place June 8-10 at the USA Baseball National Training Complex in Cary, North Carolina. The coaching staff will then select 40 athletes from the event to compete at the 2018 National Team Trials that will take place immediately following the Women's National Open from June 11-14 at the National Training Complex.

The final roster will be selected from the National Team Trials and will be announced Monday, June 18.

The 2018 Women's National Team will train in Florida from August 16-20 prior to competing in the WBSC Women's Baseball World Cup from August 22-31 at the USSSA Space Coast Complex in Viera, Florida.

2018 marks the first time the WBSC Women's Baseball World Cup will be held in the United States. Team USA is a two-time World Champion in the tournament, having won gold medals in 2004 and 2006.

GSA Spotlight: Jonathan India

April 18, 2018

Over the course of Kevin O'Sullivan's tenure as Florida's head coach, the Gators have been college baseball's most consistent big winners, making six College World Series appearances in the last 10 years. The Gators are loaded with superstars every year, and they've produced All-Americans and premium draft picks by the bushel.

But a strong case can be made that no other Gators in the last decade matched the all-around greatness of Jonathan India in 2018. Florida's junior third baseman enters week 10 hitting .438/.562/.860, ranking him first in the nation in OBP and second in OPS - and he's doing it against the best competition college baseball has to offer, in the rugged Southeastern Conference. India leads the SEC in those triple-slash categories, and he's one off the conference lead in home runs (12). He has eight stolen bases in nine attempts. And he's quite possibly college baseball's best defensive third baseman. He's the total package, and he's performing at an incredibly high level for the nation's best team.

"We've had some other guys in the past - Preston Tucker, Mike Zunino - we've had a few guys that have gone on a run like this, but this has been different," O'Sullivan said. "It's kind of like comparing him to a Zunino type: he plays a premium position, and he's just defending at such a high level, it's not just one part of his game. All phases he's performing at an extremely high level. He's not putting any pressure on himself, I don't think the draft has been an issue at all. I think he's kind of handled himself in a way that a true veteran would."

It may seem to the casual observer that India's sensational season came out of nowhere, considering he's nearly doubled his OPS from a year ago (.774). But to O'Sullivan and to scouts, India's emergence as the nation's best college third baseman feels more like fait accompli.

India has a premium pedigree and tools to match. He showed up in Gainesville as a blue-chip recruit, and scouts tagged him early on as one of the top position-player prospects for the 2018 draft after he hit .303 with 16 doubles during a solid freshman year in 2016. But he failed to take the anticipated jump to superstardom as a sophomore, hitting a modest .274 with a .429 slugging percentage, down from .440 the year before. As he entered his junior year, many observers had begun to wonder when the production would match the tools, and the hype.

"I said to him at our end of fall meetings - he had a good fall, and the thing we were stressing with him was to match up the production with the skill set, because the skill set has always been there," O'Sullivan said. "He was a big prospect coming out of high school, just the numbers hadn't matched up with his abilities. But he had a good freshman year, a really good freshman year, and last year he just wasn't quite as sharp, but he still went to the cape and hit like .300."

Scouts liked India's bat speed and overall game in the Cape, where he finished .273/.390/.394, though he hit just one home run. It seemed like just a matter of time until the power came, and boy has it come this year. Through 117 at-bats, India already has more homers (12) than he hit in 442 at-bats over his first two seasons (10).

The power surge really began during his current 24-game hitting streak, which began March 9 against Rhode Island. That streak began with seven straight two-hit games, and has grown to include 16 multi-hit games, along with seven doubles, three triples, eight homers and 21 RBIs. India is hitting an absurd .513/.623/.975 during that 24-game hitting streak.

"I mean, I guess I have a little bit more juice this year," India said a couple of weeks ago after hitting a homer to left field against Vanderbilt in the series opener. "I'm not trying to hit homers by any means, but I just put a good swing on the ball and it carried."

Later in that weekend, India showed off his opposite-field pop, driving another long ball out to right-center. His ability to drive the ball with authority to all parts of the ballpark is a result of hard work on his approach, and innate strength in his compact 6-foot, 200-pound frame.

"He's strong in all the right places. He's strong in his core, he's got strong hands, strong forearms. he's an extremely hard worker," O'Sullivan said. "He had power out of high school, but it was only to the pull side. If you went and watched him take BP, he would launch to the pull side, but he was susceptible to balls on the outer half of the plate. It's taken him a couple years to figure that out.

"(This year) he's used the whole field. He's not really gotten into any stretches where he's just been one side of the field. He's been pretty consistent that way as far as staying through the middle of the field. I was talking to (hitting coach) Craig (Bell) the other day about his BP; in the first round, execution - he never launches the ball to the pull side unless it's the last round. Everything he hits is squared up from that right center to left center gap, and he doesn't come off it until the final round. He's trained himself to stay in the middle of the field. He hit two balls out to dead-center field at our place the other day in one round, with no wind. Which doesn't happen very often."

He's also become a more patient hitter, who doesn't get himself out nearly as often. After posting a 45-85 walk-strikeout mark over his first two seasons, India has 30 walks and 26 strikeouts as a junior.

"I've matured more as a player. I feel like I've been in the league for two years now, and I'm realizing more things, and I've learned from my past years," India said. "Not swinging at pitchers' pitches, having a good approach at the plate. And just being more mature, not getting down on myself after bad at-bats. It's working out so far, I'm happy."

In addition to showing an elite hit tool and power tool, India has proven he can beat opponents with his speed. Against Vanderbilt, India dropped down a bunt and then blazed up the line in 3.85 seconds - a premium time for a righthanded hitter on a drag bunt. He has always been an instinctive and aggressive baserunner, and he plays the game the same way no matter the circumstances. O'Sullivan tells a great anecdote that reinforces that point.

"His freshman year, our last game of the year against Texas Tech in the College World Series, he hits a ball down the line, nobody on, and he gets banged out at second base - that's the last out of the season. The season's over," O'Sullivan said. "I told him, 'I want you to understand something, Jonathan: if that play happens 10 times in a row, you absolutely made the right decision to stretch that thing into a double. He had to make a perfect throw to get you, but absolutely without the shadow of a doubt, you made the right decision.' Most guys would have rounded first hard and not taken that chance, and he did.

"He never gives you a poor effort down the line. He never takes an infield off in pregame. The other neat thing is, it's hard. You can kind of get wrapped up in your own little world. These guys are 21 years old, there's a lot expected of them, especially him, he's probably elevated where he's going to go in the draft now. But he's so engaged with the team. … He's always at the right end of the dugout. He's always down there by me. When he's not hitting, he's not in the middle of the dugout BSing or screwing around, or in his own little world. He's right there with me, in every pitch. He's watching the other guys hit, encouraging them, giving them advice."

And then there's the defense piece. India isn't putting up these crazy numbers while playing first base or left field; he's manning a challenging defensive position, and he's made just three errors on the season. He filled in ably at shortstop earlier this year when Deacon Liput was suspended, before returning to the hot corner, where his footwork, body control, strong and accurate arm and instincts are all assets.

"It's the hand eye, same as the hitting ability. He's got some really, really good flexibiliy in his lower half," O'Sullivan said. "He gets below the ball, he's pretty much textbook defensively. He never gets flashy or stylish, we call it the olé, he never gets beside the ball. It's always in front of him, he doesn't shy away from balls hit hard. He can really come get a slow roller. It's just really good. You never worry about him, ever, defensively."

That entire package makes India a slam dunk first-round pick this June, and gives him a real chance to be the first position player drafted. It also makes him the best all-around player in college baseball in 2018, and a driving force behind top-ranked Florida's bid to repeat as national champion. is your online home for college baseball scores, schedules, standings, statistics, analysis, features, podcasts and prospect coverage.

Vaughn Named to USA Baseball Collegiate National Team

April 12, 2018

BERKELEY - For the second summer in a row, Cal infielder Andrew Vaughn will don his country's colors in international competition as the reigning Pac-12 Freshman of the Year has been selected to play for the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team.

After completing his freshman season in 2017, Vaughn was invited to try out for the Collegiate National Team. Not only did he make the team, he established himself as a regular for a squad that hosted series against Japan, Chinese Taipei and Cuba. Against Japan, he drove in the go-ahead run to help Team USA clinch the series win and was named series MVP after hitting .333 with two doubles and two RBIs.

Vaughn's work over the summer paved the way for the Santa Rosa, Calif. native to post even more impressive numbers over the first half of his sophomore season. Entering Cal's series against Washington State, he leads the nation in on-base percentage (.586), ranks second in home runs (15) and slugging percentage (.952) and checks in third in batting average (.442). He has earned Pac-12 Player of the Week honors twice and has helped Cal to a 19-11 overall record.

That strong first half of the season also earned Vaughn a spot on the Golden Spikes Award midseason watch list that was announced earlier in the week. He is one of 40 players still in the running for the title of top amateur baseball player in the country and semifinalists for the award will be announced on May 21.

The USA Baseball Collegiate National Team will participate in three international friendship series in 2018, beginning with the 18th USA vs. Chinese Taipei International Friendship Series that will be held in North Carolina from June 28 - July 2. The U.S. will then compete in the 42nd USA vs. Japan Collegiate All-Star Series from July 3-9 in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina; and the 7th Annual USA vs. Cuba International Friendship Series in Cuba from July 13-18. Seven Collegiate National Team games will be streamed live on, as well as Facebook Live and YouTube.

Baylor Baseball's Shea Langeliers Chosen to USA Baseball National Team

April 12, 2018

WACO, Texas - Baylor baseball sophomore catcher Shea Langeliers has accepted an invitation to play on the 2018 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team.

Langeliers is the first Baylor player to earn the privilege since Kendal Volz in 2008. Overall, the Keller, Texas, native is the eighth different BU player and ninth selection to represent the U.S. He joins Pat Combs (1988), Jason Jennings (1997-98), Bryan Loeb (1998), Jon Topolski (1998), Zane Carlson (2000), Michael Griffin (2003) and Volz among Bears to play for Team USA.

Langeliers already gathered several preseason honors as he adds to his list of 2018 accolades. He is on the Johnny Bench Award and Golden Spikes Award watch lists, in addition to receiving preseason All-America honors from (first team), Baseball America (second team), Perfect Game/Rawlings (second team) and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) (third team). The quartet of preseason All-America accolades mark the first BU player to earn three or more in a single preseason since at least 1998. The program also has back-to-back years with preseason All-Americans (Troy Montemayor in 2017 and 2018) for the first time since 2004 and 2005.

One of three from the Big 12 on the list, Langeliers was the first freshman in Baylor baseball history last season to earn Freshman All-America honors from three or more different publications as he was honored by Baseball America, the NCBWA, Collegiate Baseball, and Perfect Game/Rawlings.

Langeliers was named to the 2017 All-Big 12 second team and Big 12 All-Freshman team as well. During the 2017 season, he hit .313 with 43 runs, 66 hits, 14 doubles, two triples, 10 home runs, 38 RBI, 114 total bases and 24 walks. He also threw out 26 base stealers at a 44 percent rate with a .991 fielding percentage in 55 starts. He set the BU freshman catcher home run record and was one shy of tying the program's all-time freshman home run record (Max Muncy, 11, 2010).

Through 31 games this season, Langeliers has 23 runs, 27 hits, eight doubles, one triple, seven home runs, 17 walks, two steals and 23 RBI. Behind the plate, he has thrown out 10 of 18 base stealers.

The USA Baseball Collegiate National Team will participate in three international friendship series in 2018, beginning with the 18th USA vs. Chinese Taipei International Friendship Series that will be held in North Carolina from June 28 - July 2. The U.S. will then compete in the 42nd USA vs. Japan Collegiate All-Star Series from July 3-9 in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina; and the 7th Annual USA vs. Cuba International Friendship Series in Cuba from July 13-18.

GSA Spotlight: Davis Martin

April 12, 2018

Texas Tech coach Tim Tadlock saw this type of career coming from righthander Davis Martin.

Sure, it's hard for anyone to predict that a freshman would be an All-American and they'd have a career ERA well under three going through their draft year. But Tadlock had a hunch. He knew Martin, a 6-foot-2, 200-pounder, had all the tools and ingredients to be a premier arm and a game-changer for the Red Raiders. Martin has been exactly as advertised in his three years on the South Plains, and his role in this program has never been more important than it is now after junior lefthander Steve Gingery went down with a season-ending injury earlier this season.

With Gingery going down, more pressure and potential workload was placed on Martin's shoulders. Some pitchers might succumb to the pressures of trying to keep a top-five team's head above water. But not Martin. He's thriving more than ever, putting up career numbers as the Red Raiders try to get back to the College World Series after falling just short last season.

Rising to the occasion is just part of Martin's DNA, and it's precisely why he's one of the best and most feared arms in the game.

"Well, what's the saying, pressure is a choice. He wants the ball every time we play and he'd take it from you if you gave it to him," Tadlock said. "He's an absolute guy and he's got what you need to win. He's been that way ever since he stepped on campus.

"There's a reason we were in line to get him out of high school," he continued. "We were very fortunate that he and his family trusted us enough to get him. It's been a lot of fun to watch, that's for sure." While Martin is having a season to remember as a junior and is ranked the No. 36 college prospect, up from 51 in the preseason, he established his consistency and brand on the national stage a long time ago. He made his presence felt two seasons ago, tallying a 10-1 record and a 2.52 ERA in 89.1 innings, along with 61 strikeouts and 27 walks. Incredibly, that was as a freshman, as the San Angelo, Texas, native helped the Red Raiders reach the CWS for the second time in three seasons, this after the program had never made a trip to Omaha before 2014.

His sophomore campaign was good, but it had some serious road blocks. Martin was diagnosed with tendinitis and discomfort in his arm, and was sidelined from the middle of March until the Big 12 tournament in late May. Even with the setback, Martin still managed to tally a solid 3.07 ERA and a 4-2 record, while also throwing 44 innings, striking out 37 and walking just 10 and holding teams to a .259 average, which was an improvement over the .271 OBA his outstanding freshman season.

In his first start back from the injury last season, a date with Oklahoma State in the conference tournament, he sat 90-91 in the first inning and settled in at 87-89 - a slight change from the velocity he showed in the Shriners College Classic and against Mississippi State earlier that season - 93-94 early and 89-92 for six innings. Still, getting him back on the mound was good news for the Red Raiders, and helped set the tone for what has been a fruitful 2018 campaign thus far.

"I think he's gotten better each week for us. He's been really, really steady. He's been as advertised," Tadlock said. "His breaking ball and changeup have been fine, and his fastball has been above average. But he still has that great makeup.

"His makeup is just off the charts. His mound presence - it's off the charts," he continued. "He's one of those that guys who as a hitter when you step into the batter's box, you know you better jump in there ready to hit. He's just got it, and that's the biggest thing about Davis. And he's going to continue getting better."

He's put together strong results for the Red Raiders so far this season, and quite frankly, he's had to. We talked about the loss of Gingery for the season, but Tech is also without Erikson Lanning for the rest of the season, while Jake McDonald, who was supposed to be a premium arm who would log some significant innings, also is out the rest of the spring with a shoulder impingement. In essence, Tech's bullpen depth has been depleted a great deal, and that means guys like Martin need to put together consistent starts. That hasn't been a problem despite dealing with chilly conditions in Kentucky earlier this season and at Kansas this last weekend.

After dealing with tendinitis and discomfort last season, Martin sticks to a rather simple workout regiment - he makes sure he has a ball in his hand each day. He obviously doesn't throw bullpens every day, but Tadlock said if there's a ball around, even the day after he pitches, he's out there playing catch with someone. Tadlock said that simple change has helped his prized righty alleviate soreness - at least so far this season.

"He's throwing every day right now, and I think that has really helped him. It's certainly an old school way of doing things, especially when you have some guys who take the entire next day or two off after they pitch," he said. "He's very diligent about making sure he has a ball in his hand the next day." For the season, Martin continues to tally All-American type of numbers. He has a 5-2 record with a 2.63 ERA in 41 innings, along with 49 strikeouts and 16 walks. Most striking is the difference in opponent batting average from his first two seasons to now. Teams hit .271 against him as a freshman, .259 last year, but this year? Teams are hitting the West Texas native at a low .182 clip.

Why, you ask? Martin's stuff has gotten better. He has better feel for his entire arsenal, and his fastball command and velocity have improved. While he's dipped down to 89-92 at times this season, particularly when it's cold, Tadlock said his velocity has been more 91-93 and up to 94 at times, while also showing the ability to reach back and touch 95 and even 96 at times.

Martin has also made strides with his secondary stuff. The slider continues to be an effective pitch, though Tadlock doesn't notice much different about it so far this season. Meanwhile, he has shown better feel for the changeup, which has resulted in the Red Raiders calling it more this spring.

"I'd say the biggest difference with him is his fastball command. I would say maybe where in the past he was relying too much on his stuff, he's now commanding both sides of the plate much better," Tadlock said. "He's gotten better and better each week. I would say he's been up to 96, and it's been very good.

"I'm not sure there's much different about the slider, but I do think his secondary stuff has been a little crisper so far, " he continued. "The biggest thing with Davis is there are no worries week to week right now. He's 100 percent and he's ready to go and wants the ball every time out. He's always the kind of pitcher who wants more. He doesn't want to stay where he's at on a given day. He works really hard each day, and that type of attitude makes everyone around him that much better."

Davis Martin has already had a career that will long be remembered by Tadlock and Texas Tech fans alike, but there's plenty of time to add more scenes to this movie.

Given his past, perhaps we should be ready for a Martin trilogy. is your online home for college baseball scores, schedules, standings, statistics, analysis, features, podcasts and prospect coverage.

USA Baseball Releases Golden Spikes Award Midseason Watch List

April 10, 2018

DURHAM, N.C. - USA Baseball released the Golden Spikes Award midseason watch list on Tuesday, moving closer to naming the top amateur baseball player in the country. Presented in partnership with the Rod Dedeaux Foundation, the 41st Golden Spikes Award will be presented on June 28 in Los Angeles.

The midseason watch list features 40 of the nation's top amateur players from the college ranks. The Golden Spikes Award Advisory Board will continue to maintain a rolling list of athletes, allowing players to play themselves into consideration for the award before announcing the semifinalists on May 21.

"We are excited to announce the forty players on the Golden Spikes Award midseason watch list," said Paul Seiler, USA Baseball's Executive Director and CEO. "These athletes have proven themselves worthy of consideration for this prestigious award through the eyes of the advisory board and from the overwhelming fan support through our nomination process."

Joey Bart (Jr., C, Georgia Tech), Blaine Knight (Jr., RHP, Arkansas) and Casey Mize (Jr., RHP, Auburn) have each earned a spot on the midseason watch list for the second straight year, joining two-time midseason watch list selections Luken Baker (Jr., 1B/DH, TCU) and Seth Beer (Jr., IF, Clemson). Baker and Beer were also recognized on the list as freshmen in 2016 with Beer ultimately being named a finalist for the award that year.

In total, 13 different NCAA conferences have at least one athlete on the list, including two NCAA Division II conferences in the Gulf South Conference and the Sunshine State Conference. The Southeastern Conference leads all conferences represented on the midseason watch list with nine athletes, while seven players represent both the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Pac-12 Conference.

The defending College World Series champions, Florida, leads all schools with three athletes on the 2018 midseason watch list. Arizona State, Kentucky, NC State, Oregon State, and Southern Mississippi all placed two athletes on the list.

On Monday, May 21, USA Baseball will announce the semifinalists for the 2018 Golden Spikes Award. The list of semifinalists will then be sent to a voting body consisting of baseball media members, select professional baseball personnel, current USA Baseball staff and the 40 previous winners of the award, representing a group of more than 200 voters. As part of this selection process, all voters will be asked to choose three players from the list of semifinalists. On June 6, USA Baseball will announce the finalists, and voting for the winner will begin that same day.

Fan voting will once again be a part of the Golden Spikes Award in 2018. Beginning with the semifinalist announcement and continuing through the finalist round voting deadline, fans from across the country will be able to vote for their favorite player on

The winner of the 41st Golden Spikes Award will be named on Thursday, June 28, at a presentation in Los Angeles. The finalists and their families will be honored at the Rod Dedeaux Foundation Award Dinner that evening at Jonathan Club in downtown Los Angeles.

USA Baseball has partnered with the Rod Dedeaux Foundation to host the Golden Spikes Award since 2013. The Foundation was formed to honor legendary USC and USA Baseball Olympic team coach, Rod Dedeaux, and supports youth baseball and softball programs in underserved communities throughout Southern California.

Last year, Louisville's Brendan McKay took home the prestigious award, joining a group of recent winners that include Kyle Lewis (2016), Andrew Benintendi (2015), A.J. Reed (2014), Kris Bryant (2013), Mike Zunino (2012), Trevor Bauer (2011), Bryce Harper (2010), Stephen Strasburg (2009), Buster Posey (2008), and David Price (2007).
