* Fick Named Finalist for Olerud Two Way Player Award

University of Evansville baseball player Cody Fick is one of 10 players in the nation that are still in the running for the College Baseball Hall of Fame’s John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year Award.

The winner of the Olerud Award will be announced in Lubbock, Texas, on July 3 as part of the College Baseball Hall of Fame’s Night of Champions.

“Our voters will have another very difficult job as they choose between the ten semifinalists,” said Randy Norman, Olerud Award committee co-chair. “The players on the list have some great statistics.”

Fick has already received a number of accolades this spring, including Louisville Slugger All-American honors by Collegiate Baseball and was named Region V Player of the Year by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers of America (NCBWA). Last Tuesday, Fick was taken as a pitcher by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 23rd round of the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, becoming the 29th University of Evansville player to go in the draft since UE entered the Missouri Valley Conference in 1995.

In his senior season, Fick hit .406 and was among the national leaders with 71 RBIs in 53 games. He topped the team in eight different statistical categories as a hitter and compiled a 7-4 record, 2.36 ERA, five complete games and a pair of shutouts in 11 starts on the mound.

Four of the Olerud Award semifinalists are playing for teams that advanced to the Super Regional round of the post-season, including Brian Hernandez of UC Irvine, Brian Johnson of Florida, Danny Hultzen of Virginia and Mike McGee of Florida State. McGee won the inaugural award in 2010.

College Baseball’s Night of Champions not only features the presentation of the John Olerud Two-way Player of the Year, but also the announcements of the Brooks Wallace Award, National Pitcher of the Year Award, Johnny Bench Award and Dick Howser Trophy. Also included is the 2011 induction of the National College Baseball Hall of Fame class.
