Los Angeles, Calif. - In honor of the West Coast Conference celebrating its 40th season of sponsoring baseball, the conference office will mark the milestone with the selection of a 40th Anniversary Baseball Team . The ceremonial team will consist of the top-40 players that participated at the collegiate level for WCC institutions since 1968. LMU baseball is asking for your help in nominating the Lions' top-15 players for consideration.
The Lions may nominate up to 15 players who played baseball for LMU between 1968-2006. Help LMU determine the top-15 by emailing your nomination to Alissa Zito at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include the player's name, years played, and any supporting information and statistics. Because of the large candidate pool, the Lions ask that all nominees be first-team all-conference selections. Please submit nominations by Friday, October 13, at 5:00 p.m.
The WCC's top-40 team will include only players from the league's current membership, and each of the honorees will be recognized for their contributions to the conference, with primary focus on collegiate accomplishments.
The team will be selected by a vote from WCC administrators, league institutions, and members of local and national media outlets. Each of the eight current member institutions will be represented by at least one player on the WCC 40th Anniversary Team, with a maximum of 15 athletes from any one institution. The WCC 40th Anniversary Baseball Team will be announced on January 3, 2007.
