Conforto, who was named a Freshman All-American by the NCBWA on Monday, led OSU this past season with a .349 batting average, 13 home runs, 76 runs batted in, 131 total bases and .601 slugging percentage.
The native of Woodinville, Wash., also leads the Pac-12 with 76 RBI and should that stand after the College World Series – he leads Arizona's Robert Refsnyder by 15 RBI – he would become the first Beaver to lead the league in RBI since Jim Wilson paced the Pac-10 North with 62 in 1982.
He is also the lone Pac-12 player to rank in the top 10 in average (eighth), RBI (first) and home runs (tied for first). He's third nationally in RBI, as well.
Conforto was already named the Freshman Hitter of the Year last week by Louisville Slugger and Collegiate Baseball. Prior to that, he was honored as the Pac-12 Conference's Freshman of the Year.
Conforto named national FHOY, again
