Dickerson Earns All-Tournament Recognition
May 31, 2010
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Big Ten Player of the Year Alex Dickerson picked up All-Big Ten Tournament recognition, the conference announced Sunday. Dickerson went 6-for-12 with one home run in Indiana's three games in the tourney.
Dickerson wrapped up his second season in an IU uniform with a .419 average, 99 hits (tied for third all-time), 24 home runs (second), 75 RBI (fifth), 19 doubles (seventh) and an .805 slugging percentage (third). He will enter his junior season with 38 longballs, just nine home runs shy of the school record. He also carries a 17-game hitting streak into the 2011 season.
Dickerson is one of 38 players nationally invited to USA Baseball's Collegiate Team Trials. The team will go through a week of trials at USA Baseball's facility in Cary, N.C., at which point the team will be cut to a 22-man roster. The final roster will play a month-long schedule against international teams in the United States, Taiwan and Japan, while those who do not make the team will return to their originally scheduled summer teams.
The Poway, Calif., native is also one of three Big Ten players and one of 25 players nationally to be a semifinalist for the 2010 Dick Howser Trophy, the NCBWA announced. Dickerson is joined on the list by fellow conference members Alex Wimmers (Ohio State) and Ben Heath (Penn State). Five different conferences had three semifinalists each.
