He also nine stolen bases and finished with a .416 on-base percentage and a .628 slugging percentage. Craig joined outfielder Cyle Hankerd from USC, outfielder Michael Taylor of Stanford and right-hander Tim Lincecum from Washington as members of the Pac-10 who were selected summer All-Americans.
As a junior outfielder for the Bears, Craig was named honorable mention All-Pac-10 after batting .307 overall with a .358 average versus Pac-10 competition. He added 14 doubles, eight home runs and 35 RBI, and three times last season led-off a game with a home run. Craig now owns a .292 career batting average at Cal with 33 doubles, a triple, 16 home runs and 72 RBI in three seasons.
