And the Dundee Goes to...

It's award season in college baseball and many of the Cardinal players should be knotting their black ties. On Tuesday, the CCIW coaches made their selections for all-conference honors, and the Cardinal presence was felt throughout the list. Catcher Michael Corrigan became the seventh Cardinal in program history to be named CCIW Player of the Year, which also placed him on the first team along with pitcher Nate Arenson, shortstop Nick Robinson, and designated hitter Joe Turek. Joining the party as second-team honorees were third baseman Peter Romanello, outfielder Dan Scott, and pitchers TJ Hecimovich, Mike Kloss and Kevin Krajewski. Both Corrigan and Kloss are making repeat appearances among the conference's best. Both players earned second team honors last season. Coach Fitzgerald rounded out the list by earning Coach of the Year honors.

The Central Region honors were released yesterday and four of the ten Red Birds recognized from the CCIW, were recognized by the regional committee as well. Arenson, Corrigan, Kloss and Robinson all received second-team honors while Corrigan and Scott were recipients of the Gold Glove Award.

Normally, it would be a fitting end to a great season but we have the Dundees, I mean the Players' Choice Awards tomorrow. Follow the links to read the full release on the
