WALNUT CREEK, Calif. — Five Pac-12 baseball players have been named semifinalists for the 2013 Dick Howser Trophy presented by Easton Foundations, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association announced Thursday. The award, given to the top player in collegiate baseball, is based on two rounds of national voting.

The Dick Howser Trophy, given in memory of the former Florida State University All-America shortstop and major league player and manager, who died of brain cancer in 1987, is regarded by many as college baseball's most prestigious award. Criteria for consideration of the trophy include performance on the field, leadership, moral character and courage, qualities that were exemplified by Dick Howser's life.

The semifinalists from the Pac-12 are Mark Appel, Sr., Stanford; David Berg, So., UCLA; Brandon Dixon, Jr. Arizona; Ryan Kellogg, Fr., Arizona State; Jimmie Sherfy, Jr., Oregon.

Appel, the Pac-12 leader in strikeouts (110), ranks fifth in the Pac-12 with a 1.97 ERA and boasts a .201 opposing batting average. The All-American is 8-4 in 12 starts this season and has has tossed four complete games. He has issued just 20 walks and allowed 15 extra-base hits in 91.1 innings this season.

Berg, who has pitched 30.0 straight innings without allowing a run, owns a Pac-12-best 0.64 ERA. He is 6-0 in 35 appearances and has tallied 13 saves. He boasts a .188 opposing batting average and has notched 60 strikeouts versus seven walks.

Dixon leads the Conference in stolen bases (30), runs scored (52) and batting average and ranks second in both slugging percentage (.574) and on-base percentage (.444). He is only the fourth player in school history to steal at least 30 bases, score 40 runs and tally 40 RBI in the same season.

Kellogg, who sits at 10-0 for the season, is just the sixth Sun Devil to collect at least 10 wins in his freshman season. He owns a 3.36 ERA in 13 appearances (12 starts) and has thrown one complete game. He has fanned 47 batters and walked 14, while limiting opponents to a .233 batting average.

Sherfy, who is tied for the NCAA lead with 19 saves, needs just one more to break his own school record, which he established in 2012. He boasts a 1.00 ERA in 34 appearances this season and has struck out 50 batters while walking 13. He has held opposing batters to a .198 average.

The finalists will be announced on Thursday, June 6. The 2013 award will be presented at TD Ameritrade Stadium in downtown Omaha, the home of the College World Series for the third year. The winner will be unveiled on Saturday, June 15 at 10 a.m. CT, the opening day of the 2013 CWS. USC’s Mark Prior won the award in 2001

I just don't get Sherfy as a finalist. He is just such an oddball. After today's meltdown, I can't see him still in contention for the award.

Was it really meltdown? I mean, we all have bad days, you know? Or did he just lose it out there, screaming, kicking, throwing a tantrum? Sure wish I could have watched this series.

Nick, there is no doubt Sherfy has talent. I almost feel that with Horton's need to prove a point, that he put his best pitcher in a very tough situation in which he fell apart. There was really not need to put Sherfy in the game. One has to wonder if his poor performance today will carry over into future peformances.

How he does in his next game will be the story on where he goes in the draft. I don't care who you are, 20 saves in a season in dam good. It takes talent to get there. Even with his hippy hair, he did his job for the ducks and is a MAJOR reason why the team is where they are.

Hmm. Last time I checked one game does not dictate a resume of dominance. Here are some awards he is up for and the reason why he will go higher than any beav this year.. Sherfy named semifinalist for Dick Howser Trophy, also on watch lists for Golden Spikes Award, Pitcher of the Year Award and NCBWA Stopper of the Year Award: Jimmie Sherfy[font=Arial] is one of 40 semifinalists for the Dick Howser Trophy which honors the top player in college baseball. The award is just the latest that Sherfy is in the running for after he earned a spot on the Golden Spikes Award Midseason Watch List, the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Stopper of the Year Midseason Watch List and the 2013 Pitcher of the Year Award Watch List. Sherfy is one of 51 players on the stopper of the year list, one of 22 players to make the latest pitcher of the year list and one of 60 players on the Golden Spikes list. For all we know your beavs hit a mark that can never be matched. Be thankful it was against the ducks.. but please don't declare a pitcher an oddball. Most closer's are just that. I takes nerves of steel to be a closer, and most don't have it. To get 20 saves... and to make huge improvements over last year, over what happened to him, one out from potentially making it to the CWS.. you would think he would be damaged goods. I am proud and blown away at his talent, and look forward to following him wherever his arm takes him. 160 pounds and slinging the ball 95 mph is a gift. And to others that perform at that high level. [/font]
You can't declare what you feel based on one series. The beavs were on fire and the baseball gods where looking down on them. Thorpe is number 3 if you ask me for our starting pitchers. I remember when you guys tromped in and had that terrible losing streak. One of your guys tripped over his shoe, fell down and the ball landed 5 feet away. That stuff happens, you can't base one performance on that. Horton ran out of pitchers, and made the choice to pitch him, because he knew he was going to pitch. We were down by many runs, it did not matter..He is a closer, put into positions with the game on the line, the game was not on the line, resulting in not the same mentality from pitcher or hitter. That game should not even be brought up. Pitching is mental, and being put in that place will make you weaker or stronger, depending on the individual. He is there because he has a special gift of bending, not breaking, and I have witnessed him more time than not be an absolute crusher. He is up there with Anderson as one of the better products to come out of Oregon. Not saying he will make it, but he has the tools.
