Pac 12 Player & Pitcher of the Week (Week 15)

ASU74
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — ARIZONA sophomore left fielder Johnny Field has been named Pac-12 Player of the Week and Wildcat junior right-handed pitcher Kurt Heyer has been named Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week for May 21-27, Commissioner Larry Scott announced Monday.

Field delivered a two-out walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth on Sunday to give Arizona an 8-7 victory over Arizona State and earn a share of the Wildcats’ first conference championship since 1992. With that at-bat, the sophomore claimed the regular season Pac-12 batting title as his 6-for-13 (.462) weekend at the plate pushed his season batting average to .379. Along with his six hits, Field scored three runs in the series to give him a league-best 59 runs scored on the season. He also finished with the highest on-base percentage (.494) and the most walks (39).
This is Fields’ second career Pac-12 Player of the Week honor and the 58th all-time selection for Arizona. Field’s first career weekly award came two weeks ago on May 14.

Heyer tossed his first shutout and sixth complete game of the season in Arizona’s 1-0 victory over Arizona State on Friday. The win, paired with an Oregon loss, moved the Wildcats into a tie for first place in the Pac-12. They went on to win a share of the Pac-12 Championship over the weekend. The junior notched his 11th win of the season and lowered his ERA to 2.03 as he scattered six hits and struck out two over the nine innings. Heyer limited the Sun Devils to just a 1-for-13 clip with runners on base in the game. The shutout marked the first time Arizona has blanked its archrival since 1989. It was the first time a game ended with a shutout between the schools in Tucson since UA's 4-0 victory on May 16, 1970.
This is Heyer’s sixth career Pac-12 Pitcher of the Week selection and Arizona’s 50th all-time selection. Heyer has won three Pitcher of the Week honors this season, becoming the first to do so since UCLA’s Tyson Brummett in 2007.

Also Nominated (Player): Andrew Aplin, ASU; Ryan Barnes, OSU.

Also Nominated (Pitcher): Brady Rodgers, ASU; Scott Schultz, OSU; David Berg, UCLA; Austin Voth, WASH.

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — ARIZONA, OREGON, OREGON STATE, STANFORD and UCLA have been selected to the 64-team field for the 2012 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship, as announced by the NCAA selection committee on Monday.

UCLA received the No. 2 overall seed in the tournament, while Oregon earned the No. 5 overall seed. UCLA, Oregon, Arizona and Stanford all will host a regional as tournament play starts Friday.

In the Los Angeles Regional, the Pac-12 Co-Champion Bruins (42-14), who are the top seed in the regional, start off with four-seed Creighton (26-28). Third-seed New Mexico (36-22) and second-seed San Diego (40-15) round out the rest of the regional.

Arizona (38-17) is the No. 1 seed in the Tucson Regional, where the Pac-12 Co-Champions will take on Big 12 tournament champion Missouri (32-26) on Friday at 8 p.m. PT. That game is preceded by three-seed Louisville versus two-seed New Mexico State (35-22) at 4 p.m. PT. Every game of the Tucson Regional will be broadcast on ESPNU and ESPN3.

The Palo Alto Regional features top regional seed Stanford (38-16) and four-seed Fresno State (30-26). As pointed out in the NCAA selection show, Cardinal ace Mark Appel is 9-1 on the season, and his only loss came against Fresno State in early March. Three-seed Michigan State (37-21) and two-seed Pepperdine (34-21) make up the other half of the regional slate. Every game of the Palo Alto Regional can be seen on ESPN3.

Oregon (42-17) plays host for the Eugene Regional as the No. 5 national seed and top seed in the regional. First up for the Ducks is fourth-seeded Austin Peay (38-22). Oregon coach George Horton has a chance to face his alma mater and old team, two-seed Cal State Fullerton (35-19), depending on how the Titans fare against three-seed Indiana State (41-17).

Oregon State (38-18) is the second seed in the Baton Rouge Regional, hosted by No. 7 overall seed LSU. The Beavers start off with three-seed Belmont (39-22) on Friday. OSU is in the postseason for the seventh time in eight years.

Each of the 16 regionals features four teams, playing a double-elimination format. The regionals are scheduled from Friday, June 1, to Monday, June 4 (if necessary). Selection of the eight super regional hosts will be announced on NCAA.com on June 4 at about 8 p.m. PT.

The 66th Men’s College World Series starts Friday, June 15, at the TD Ameritrade Park Omaha in Omaha, Neb.

Four Pac Players Named Golden Spikes Semifinalists

ASU74
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — STANFORD’s Mark Appel, UCLA’s Jeff Gelalich, ARIZONA’s Kurt Heyer and OREGON’s Alex Keudell are among the 30 semifinalists for the 2012 USA Baseball Golden Spikes Award, as announced by USA Baseball on Tuesday.

Stanford junior right-handed pitcher Mark Appel finished the regular season as the league leader in strikeouts with 116 over 110.0 innings, boasting a 9-1 record and a 2.37 ERA. Appel also leads the Conference in batters struck out looking (34) and is second in opposing batting average (.216).

UCLA junior outfielder Jeff Gelalich wrapped up the regular season with the Pac-12’s second-best batting average at .367, and is a top-three finisher in on-base percentage (.458) and hits (79). Gelalich tallied nine home runs, 39 RBI, 50 runs scored and 15 stolen bases during the regular season.

Arizona junior right-handed pitcher Kurt Heyer heads into the postseason with an 11-2 record and a 2.03 ERA, the lowest in the Conference for a starting pitcher. Heyer has pitched a league-leading 119.2 innings this season, including six complete games. His 91 strikeouts put him behind only Appel in whiffs, and he is just one win shy of leading the Pac-12 in wins.

Oregon senior right-handed pitcher Alex Keudell completed the regular season with a 10-4 record, setting the school record for single-season wins. His 2.12 ERA is the third-lowest among Pac-12 starting pitchers. Keudell is the Friday-night starter for an Oregon team that was ranked as high as No. 5 by Baseball America and No. 1 by Collegiate Baseball this season.

The list of 30 semifinalists will be sent to a voting body consisting of past USA Baseball National Team coaches and press officers, members of media that closely follow college baseball, select professional baseball personnel and current USA Baseball staff, representing a group of more than 200 voters in total.

Fans can vote for their favorite semifinalist starting Tuesday, May 29 at GoldenSpikesAward.com. As part of the selection process all voters will be asked to choose three players from the list of 30 names. On Tuesday, June 5, USA Baseball will announce the three finalists, and voting will once again commence that same day. Fans have until Friday, June 15 at 2 p.m. PT to vote for the winner. The award winner will be announced live on MLB Network’s The Rundown on Friday, July 6.

I would like to know too. Their 3rd baseman made an easy play threw the guy out at home and then started taunting our player like he had won the world series. Showed his behind a little bit and it made it that much sweeter to beat losers like that.


We were sitting on the Hog side and did not see anyone from either team do anything except play hardcore baseball. From our perspective it was the homeplate umpire & the 2nd base umpire who initiated the conference & neither Graham nor Van Horn seemed very upset after they were included. If the discussion was concerning the Rice 3rd baseman, you would think the 3rd base umpire would have been initiated the conference. For the most part, it was an extensive & emotional umpire discussion....but about what.....I figured Kendall would know the real skinny.

Changed this from the day three surprises topic, but then I thought of some other things that qualify as surprises (that fans should celebrate):

Amazing run of the small conference teams!

American East: Stony Brook is 3-1 in the Coral gables regional and has outscored their opponents 40-23, beating Miami, Missouri State, and Central Florida. Their lone loss was a 9-8 affair to UCF, whom they play tomorrow for the championship. If they win, they head to Baton Rouge, a tough venue. But this is the little engine that could.

Mid-American: Kent State battled Kentucky, whom many thought were on the cusp of being sent to Miami as a traveling #1 but entered the Gary regional as a #2, to a 21-inning 7-6 victory, then beat host Purdue the next day after that marathon game, and beat UK again to sweep the Gary regional.

Big East: Louisville ran into the Arizona slaughterhouse, but fellow BE team St. John went into what everyone called the easiest regional and a gift to North Carolina as a 3 seed and emerged with a 3-0 sweep. The Johnnies beat East Carolina, a very low 2 seed in most experts' opinions, then dispatched host and national seed UNC twice to biunce them from their own regional.

Independent: Dallas Baptist is not done yet, but they have a chance to steal the Waco regional from host and national 4 seed Baylor.

SoCon: Because all games were rain-delayed a day in the Charlottesville regional, this one is not yet decided. But Appalachian State has already beaten host Virginia (eliminated) and Oklahoma. The Sooners will have to beat the Mountaineers twice, but App State only needs one more win. The three SoCon teams have a 5-4 record so far.


There are some people who think the "undeserving teams" should not get auto bids or even be in post season play. The results this weekend should put that debate to rest. If the small conference schools do not get the expierence in tournament play, they will never get the oportunity to shine & progress, as we have seen this weekend.

I would like to apologize, as it is my fault that the beavers lost. As you know baseball players are a superstitious bunch, I watched the first inning then had to leave to play a softball game, when it was done, we were in the 8th innning and when i got home and turned it on we started the 9th inning and it all went downhill.

somehow i feel if i had just left the game alone and not watched we would have pulled it off.

there is always next year and with a good core of young players we should be able to make another run at a conference title and maybe even to omaha, we have good young pitchers, conforto is only a freshman, hopefully Keyes can get some of his mojo back after a dissapointing sophmore slump. for the 4th straight year we made to at least the regional finals so we were one of the last 32 teams playing out of a couple hundred so that is nothing to sneeze at.


It is bad luck to be superstitious.Peace Sign

ASU, that's the position 2Bulldogs was taking on Rivals, as you probably are aware. Notice the updated list at the top of this thread...the red teams that upset the #1 seeds. Two of those stand out for me:

Appalachian State failed to advance, but they acquitted themselves well. And Dallas Baptist just missed it again. Honorable mention to Austin Peay, finishing second in the Eugene regional ahead of Fullerton and Indiana State.

I would also add Sam Houston State to the Honorable Mention List for finishing second in the Rice regional ahead of Rice and Prairie View A & M.

Naa. Even though currently the threads are mostly Pac based, and Beaver dominated at that, other fans, Pac or not are welcomed (Ducks to some lesser degree, but welcomed never the less).

Hell, FullertonBaseballFan even wears the 2012 Pac Picker Crown!

My only disappointment is other conferences are not takiing the Pac pathway and developing their own fan base threads as DM has developed here. Much thanks for DM's initative and leadership in this endeavor. I believe when people get tired of the abusive rhetoric at Rivals, over time they will gravitate to PG and thrive.

Kendall: Please add a spell check feature to the tool bar for people such as myself who are spelling challanged.
