Paul Goldschmidt became the first player to repeat as Southland Conference hitter of the year since future big leaguer Ben Broussard in 1998-99. Goldschmidt, who also won the SLC's player of the year award, led NCAA Division I with 87 RBIs entering super-regional play and bashed 18 homers this spring, giving him a school-record 36 for his career. He has big righthanded power and good plate discipline for a slugger. Though he's a good athlete for a 6-foot-4, 240-pounder, his lack of range limits him to first base, so his bat will have to carry him. Part of a national championship team at The Woodlands (Texas) High in 2006, Goldschmidt went in the 49th round of that draft to the Dodgers.
