USC's Garret Guillemette, Ben Ramirez Named All-Pac-12, Quentin Longrie Honorable Mention
LOS ANGELES – The Pac-12 postseason awards were released this week and USC baseball's Ben Ramirez, Garret Guillemette and Quentin Longrie were honored.
Ramirez and Guillemette were named to the All-Pac-12 team and Longrie earned honorable mention. The all-conference team included 32 of the Pac-12's best players and the honorable mention list included 25 athletes.
Ramirez was the Trojans' batting champ this year, leading the team with a .304 average, while also serving as USC's top run producer with 54 RBI. The left-handed hitting third baseman posted seven doubles, three triples, 10 homers and scored 25 runs while starting all 51 games this season. Ramirez's 54 RBI were good for fifth in the Pac-12 and are the most by a Trojan player since 2010. Ramirez also led the team with 19 multi-hit games and 15 multi-RBI games.
Guillemette had a stellar freshman season for USC, finishing second on the team with a .299 batting average. He started 44 games behind the plate for the Trojans, posting 10 doubles and three homers while slugging .429. Guillemette drove in 19 runs and scored 19 as well. He caught seven runners stealing and recorded only three passed balls all year.
After six years as a Trojan, Longrie posted his best season to date in 2021, notching a 1.73 ERA out of the pen. Longrie tossed 26.0 innings all in relief for the Trojans, recording one save in his 17 appearances. The lefty only gave up runs in four of his relief appearances and gave up more than one run just once all season. He posted 31 strikeouts and 10 walks, while holding opponents to a .189 batting average.
The all-conference honors are the first for all three players and mark the second straight year (excluding 2020 when no conference honors were given) that USC has had multiple players on the All-Pac-12 team.
