CWS COVERAGE: SCHEDULE/RESULTS | BEST OF THE CWS | CWS BREAKDOWN | MESSAGE BOARDS

Several players around the country made strong impressions this season, but only a select few stand out above the rest.

UCLA pitcher Trevor Bauer and Utah first baseman C.J. Cron had campaigns most players only can dream about. Bauer finished the season with over 200 strikeouts and Cron hit well over .400 with outstanding power.

Though Bauer and Cron lead the Perfect Game All-America teams, plenty of other college baseball stars also made their presence known this season.
