The top hitter in the conference and within the top ten of the nation, Melone has helped lead the charge to WCU's title defense. Collecting 44 hits in 99 AB's, he should be well on his way to a potential All-American bid.
Key Stats: .438 AVG / .532 OBP / 6 SB
At one point the top hitter in all of D2, Shirk hit a bit of a skid to drop his average to .438, a still dazzling number. Just a sophomore, this Mountain Cats standout is one of the blooming stars in D2 Baseball.
Key Stats: .435 AVG / 7 HR / 33 RBI
D'Orso has led the charge for the Bald Eagles' power, hitting just under a third of the team's overall long balls. He has also proven to be more than just a slugger, collecting a nice .435 average behind 27 hits in 62 at-bats.
Key Stats: .407 AVG / 6 HR / 27 RBI / 14 SB
Fairman has proven to be an all-around threat from the offensive side of the ball, combining contact, power, and speed to be one of the premier talents in the conference. His 14 stolen bases lead the conference, and he places within the top 11 of the other stats above.
Key Stats: .356 AVG / 13 2B / 5 HR / 27 RBI
Renaud leads the PSAC in two-baggers, collecting a total of 18 extra-base hits to total more than half of his overall hits. Slugging at a .667 clip, the Warriors have one of the best gap power hitters in their midst.
