2004 BASEBALL HONORS

STANFORD'S JED LOWRIE NAMED PLAYER OF THE YEAR
WASHINGTON'S TIM LINCECUM NAMED PITCHER AND FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR
UCLA'S GARY ADAMS EARNS COACH OF THE YEAR

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - STANFORD sophomore infielder Jed Lowrie was named the 2004 Pacific-10 Conference Baseball Player of the Year, while WASHINGTON freshman right-hander Tim Lincecum earned Pitcher and Freshman of the Year honors in a vote by the Conference baseball coaches. UCLA skipper Gary Adams earned the Coach of the Year honor after guiding the Bruins to their best finish since 2000, Commissioner Tom Hansen announced today.

Lowrie, from Salem, Ore., led the Conference with a .407 batting average, 16 home runs, 47 walks, 163 total bases, a .755 slugging percentage and an on base percentage of .513. Lowrie also had the second most runs scored (68) and RBI (66), and was third in the Pac-10 with 88 hits and 19 doubles. Earlier this season, Lowrie was named National Player of the Week by NCBWA (National College Baseball Writers Association). He is also a Dick Howser Award semifinalist and was one of nine Pac-10 players to be invited to the USA Baseball Team Trials this summer.

Lincecum, from Renton, Wash., is the first player ever in Pac-10 history to be named both Pitcher and Freshman of the Year in the same season. Lincecum led the league with 151 strikeouts, and kept opposing batters to an average of just .210, also a Pac-10 best this year. His 3.49 ERA was fourth-best in the league and he was one of only six pitchers to pitch over 100 innings during the regular season, notably the only freshman to do so. If Lincecum finishes the season with the most strikeouts, he will be the first freshman since USC's Bill Bordley in 1977 to lead the league in strikeouts.

Adams earns his third Pac-10 Coach of the Year award after leading the Bruins to the postseason for the first time since 2000. Predicted to finish seventh in the Conference this season, Adams took last year's team that posted a losing record and helped them capture third place in the Conference with a 14-10, 33-27 finish. In 30 years at the helm of the UCLA program, Adams has posted a 982-821-5 record. This season he was named to be inducted into the American Baseball Coaches Association Hall of Fame on Jan., 7 2005. This will be Adams last season at UCLA as he has announced that he will retire at the conclusion of the season.
