BY THE NUMBERS: Hit .365 with 35 hits, 11 doubles, one home run, drew 25 walks and drove in 32 runs; hit .415 with runners in scoring position; played third base and was 4-2 with a 1.94 ERA, struck out 49 in 39 innings; three-time first-team Super-Stater.
COACH BOB GRECO SAYS: "Besides Mike's strong leadership and his competitiveness, he could take about any off-speed pitch and put it where he wanted. To be able to throw a full-count slider or curveball for a strike is big, and that is what Mike has been able to do. He really does a good job at third. When he was younger, he didn't have as good range, but he really improved over there this year."
