College Baseball’s Best Player

Dustin Ackley’s three runs driven in led the North Carolina offense.

CARY, N.C. (AP) – Adam Warren threw six innings of two-hit ball, but Dustin Ackley(North Forsyth HS) drove in three runs and North Carolina beat Coastal Carolina 14-4 on Sunday to win the Cary Super Regional and reach the College World Series for the third straight year.

#13 Dustin Ackley…. .408avg., 63games/63starts, 255 at bats, 79 runs, 104 hits, 20 doubles, 4 triples, 7HR’s, 50RBI’s, 153 total bases, .600 slugging %, 52 Base on Balls, 1 Hit by pitch, 25 strikeouts, 1 Grounded into double play, .500 on base%, 18-24 in stolen bases………

Ackley leads his team in 6 of the 12 major offensive categories. Show me a better player in the country than this young man, Dustin Ackley. He was the top freshman in the nation last year and he has come back this seasn with even better numbers, and he’s from right here in our own backyard, in Forsyth County and he comes out of North Forsyth High School.

Let’s look at the headline from yesterday one more time:

Dustin Ackley’s three runs driven in led the North Carolina offense.
*****Some may argue that there are better players than Ackley on the current Tar Heel team, but you need to go back and look at Dustin’s numbers again. He is the man leading the Heels and you should be prone to agree, he may just be, the BEST COLLEGE BASEBALL PLAYER IN THE NATION.*****
