Rutledge, Dugas Top Tiders In SEC

Alabama didn't have to look too far down the All-Southeastern Conference Baseball list to spot trouble. The SEC Player of the Year is Hunter Morris of Auburn.



Alabama opens Southeastern Conference Tournament play at 9:30 a.m. CDT Wednesday against Auburn at Regions Park in Hoover.

Auburn's Morris was player of the year and the All-SEC first baseman was one of four Tigers named to the first team. He was joined by outfielders Trent Mummey and Brian Fletcher and designated hitter Kevin Patterson.

The Crimson Tide is not without some honorees.

Josh Rutledge was the All-SEC shortstop and Taylor Dugas is an outfielder on the honor squad.

Bama outfielder Andrew Miller was named to the Freshman All-SEC team.

Alabama third baseman Jake Smith was selected to the All-SEC Defensive Team.

Top honorees included Drew Pomeranz of Ole Miss as pitcher of the year, Austin Maddox of Florida as Freshman of the Year, and Kevin O'Sullivan of Florida Coach of the Year.
