The College Baseball Blog is continuing with its top 100 countdown of the best players in college baseball. Dan Bowman was recently named the number 77 player. Congratulations to the Coastal Carolina Junior outfielder.
Last season Bowman played right field. Although his batting average was .279, he came on strong at the end. He had 15 homeruns and 63 RBI. He played his summer ball in the Cape Cod League and was selected to the All-Star game. I expect great things from him this upcoming season.
Bowman is the second Coastal player named in the top 100 this year. Scott Woodward was picked earlier.
The top 100 countdown is entertaining. But remember that’s all it is. After all, only 100 players will be listed. A lot can happen before Opening Day and a lot can happen during the season. It’s almost anyone’s guess who will be the best players in college baseball.
Coastal had two players selected in last year’s top 100. Rico Noel was not one of those two. He turned out to be one of the team’s best players.
I’ll keep reading the countdown. Maybe Coastal will have another player named; maybe not. Maybe it will be like last year.
