Four Commodores Earn SEC Honors
Posted May 19, 2009
BIRMINGHAM—- Redshirt junior shortstop Brian Harris headlined a group of four Vanderbilt players named to All-Southeastern Conference teams as voted by the coaches and released by the league office Tuesday morning.
Harris, along with
’s Josh Rutledge, was named to the All-SEC first team at short. Redshirt sophomore outfielder
earned second-team plaudits, while second baseman
and designated hitter
garnered All-Freshmen team honors.
“I am proud of all of the guys for making an All-SEC team,” said
head coach Tim Corbin. “It is a testament to the hard work they display each and every day and for them to be mentioned among the best in the league is certainly an honor for them.”
Harris hit .320 with seven homers and 39 RBI in his first season as a starter at short. His 19 doubles was the second most in the league, along with teammate Liddle, and he was hit by a pitch a conference leading 19 times in 2009. A steady and reliable fielder, the Montgomery Bell Academy graduate made just six errors at short in 203 chances all season, and just two errors in 29 conference games. Because of his defensive prowess, Harris was also named to the SEC All-Defensive Team at shortstop along with
’s Bobby Haney.
Liddle led the Commodores with nine homers after not hitting a single one in his first season as a starter a year ago. He finished the regular season with a .347 batting average, 19 doubles (tied for second in SEC) and 43 RBI. The Franklin High graduate was second among the league’s outfielders with a .374 batting average in SEC play. He hit seven of his nine homers in conference with 11 doubles and 21 RBI.
Reynolds started in 52 games as a true freshman and ended the regular season with a .340 batting average, 13 doubles and 20 RBI. He was second in the conference with 10 sacrifice bunts, while also stealing 12 bases in 19 attempts. The Blue Springs, Mo., native hit .310 in league play and played a steady second with just four errors in 29 games.
Westlake captured the regular season batting crown in the SEC with a .382 batting average along with seven homers and 48 RBI. In his first full season as a starter the Redding, Calif., native hit .328 in league play with six homers and 28 RBI. He filled in behind the plate earlier in the season when catcher
was sidelined with a broken hand and did so despite never playing the position.
The Commodores arrived in Hoover on Monday night and will practice on Tuesday before taking on No. 1 seed
on Wednesday at 5 p.m. CT at Regions Park.
