Davis at the Big Ten tournament
University of Illinois catcher Lars Davis will have to make some more room on his mantle. He’s got another award coming.
Davis was named to the Louisville Slugger All-American Second Team. For those wondering, Buster Posey from Florida St was the catcher on the First Team.
Though he his a junior and Illini fans would hate to lose him, it is only reasonable to assume that the Big Ten Player of the Year will be testing the draft waters on June 7-8.
From an article on Canada.com:
“I’d love to start a pro ball career, but worst-case scenario, I have no objections about going back to Illinois for another year,” said Davis, who threw out a conference-high 24 base-runners on 84 steal attempts and sported a .972 fielding percentage.
Sounds like Davis is ready to catch some pro ball to me.
Good Luck Lars!
