TCU Lands Six Players On Mountain West's Baseball Preseason All-Conference Team

The Mountain West announced their preseason order of finish on Friday and they also announced the preseason all-conference teams as well. TCU dominated the selection by having six players on the roster named to the preseason Mountain West all-conference team. This adds to the preseason awards by sophomore pitcher Matt Purke and junior outfielder Jason Coats who were also named as All-Americans according to Baseball America. Purke was named on the first-team while Coats was placed on the second-team.

BYU comes in as the only other team besides TCU to have more then one player make the preseason list. Junior Alex Wolfe is the catcher and the other is senior Ryan Bernal who is a utility player and designated hitter 

Utah senior C.J. Cron was named as the league's top first baseman, but he is a versatile player who also plays catcher and was named as Baseball America's third-team All-American at the catcher position.
