Tyson Ross Named to the 2007 Wallace Award Watch List
Dec. 14, 2006
LUBBOCK, TEXAS - University of California sophomore right-hander Tyson Ross has been selected to the watch list for the 2007 Wallace Award, which honors the nation's top collegiate baseball player. The Wallace Watch List will be trimmed to 12 semifinalists by late May. The selection committee - comprised of preeminent coaches, sports information directors, former winners and media - will narrow the list to three finalists following the NCAA Super Regionals, and prior to the College World Series.
This past spring as a true freshman for the Golden Bears, Ross earned honorable mention All-Pac-10 accolades after finishing 6-4 with a 3.19 ERA (seventh in the Pac-10). He also had 85 strikeouts (10th in the Pac-10) in 84.7 innings, with victories at Stanford and Pacific in his last couple of outings in May. He also picked up wins versus Long Beach State, UC Santa Barbara, Georgetown and Washington. Ross paced Cal with 15 starts, had a complete-game victory over Washington, and had a career-high nine strikeouts in 6.0 innings versus then-No. 17-ranked Long Beach State.
