I am a few days late with this, but on Monday sophomores Alex Dickerson and Blake Monar were recognized in the annual College Baseball Insider's Big Ten coaches poll. Dickerson, who was also named one of the Big Ten's best pure hitters and one of the hitters you don't want to face, was a unanimous choice by the coaches as one of the conference's biggest power threats. Monar, who along with Dickerson was named to the Big Ten All-Freshman team a season ago, was tabbed by the Big Ten coaches as one of the conference's top three starting pitchers.
Here's to both Dickerson and Monar following through on this recognition with big years. Hopefully this is just the beginning in terms of honors and accolades for the pair this season. Go Hoosiers!
