I’m don’t think there was anyone who was skipped over in this list. Lorenz stood no chance against Penn State’s Steranka for All Freshman third basemen. McLouth had no chance against Freshman of the Year Dickerson of Indiana. Cislo wasn’t as good this year. Fellows probably just missed being on the third team. Berset missed too much time and would have needed a strong full campaign to overtake the 3rd team catcher. None of our pitchers deserve all conference representation. It was a down year, here’s hoping next year will be better.
I’ll work on getting a end of season post out tomorrow. I’m furiously packing for a trip to New York next week. I’m also contemplating taking a couple days to float the river north of San Antonio. So it’s probably good Michigan didn’t make the tournament, I’d be out of posting capabilities for way too long.
