PRESS RELEASE

For Immediate Release: Friday, May 28, 1999

"LOUISVILLE SLUGGER'S" ALL-AMERICAN BASEBALL TEAMS

TUCSON, Ariz. — The Louisville Slugger NCAA Division I All-American baseball teams were announced today which have a potent mix of pitching and offense.

The 16-man first team, chosen by performances up to regional playoffs and picked by the staff of Collegiate Baseball newspaper, features 12 conference players or pitchers of the year, including: LHP Barry Zito (Pac-10 Pitcher Of The Year), LHP Todd Moser (Trans America Player Of The Year), RHP Ben Sheets (Southland Player Of The Year), C Chad Sutter (Conference USA Player Of The Year), 2B Marshall McDougall (Atlantic Coast Conference Player Of The Year), SS Willie Bloomquist (Pac-10 Player Of The Year), 3B Taggert Bozied (West Coast Player Of The Year), 3B Hunter Bledsoe (Southeastern Conference Player Of The Year), OF Spencer Oborn (Big West Player Of The Year), OF Matt Cepicky (Missouri Valley Player Of The Year), OF Jeff Stallings (Mid-Continent Player Of The Year), UT Jason Jennings (Big 12 Player Of The Year),

The first team also features four starting pitchers who posted a combined 52-3 record with an ERA of 2.65. Northeast Louisiana's Ben Sheets led the first teamers with 153 strikeouts as well as leading in complete games with 9 in 14 starts. The two relief pitchers saved 34 games between them with a microscopic ERA of 0.94.

The offense features power and speed. The first team belted 180 homers (average 18 per player). Jeff Stallings of Oral Roberts swiped 48 bases this year and Willie Bloomquist of Arizona State 32. Three other players stole 17 or more. Nebraska's Harvey currently leads the nation with a .484 batting average. Another interesting note is that Florida State's McDougall had the most amazing offensive game in college baseball history this season as he went 7-for-7 with 6 home runs against Maryland during a 26-2 victory. Even more rare is that he hit for the home run cycle as he belted every conceivable type of home run. He set three NCAA records in the game which included home runs in one game (6), RBIs in a game (16) and total bases in a game (25).

The first team also features Collegiate Baseball’s National Player of The Year in Jason Jennings (Baylor) who was a one-man dynamo for the Bears. Heading into regional action, Jennings had posted a 12-1 record on the mound with a 2.15 ERA and 8 complete games in 16 starts. He fanned 159 batters and walked only 43. As a hitter, he was batting a robust .385 with 15 homers, 14 doubles and 59 RBI. Jennings ranks in the top 10 in nearly every Baylor offensive category while also ranking as possibly the best pitcher in school history.

The following are the first, second and third team Louisville Slugger All-Americans for 1999. Complete statistics on each of the players accompany this release.
