PHEGLEY COLLECTS SECOND TEAM ALL-AMERICA
RECOGNITION FROM COLLEGIATE BASEBALL NEWSPAPER

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Sophomore catcher Josh Phegley has been named a
2008 Louisville Slugger Second Team All-American by Collegiate Baseball
Newspaper , the publication announced today. Phegley finished off one of the
best offensive seasons in IU history with a .438 average, 15 home runs, 80 RBI
and 20 doubles.

Phegley was one of four Big Ten players to be honored by the publication. The
sophomore was joined by a trio of Michigan upperclassmen in Big Ten Player of
the Year Nate Recknagel, Big Ten Pitcher of the Year Zach Putnam and First
Team All-Big Ten pitcher Chris Fetter. All four conference players were selected
to the second team. Phegley was edged for first team honors by National Player
of the Year Buster Posey, a catcher for Florida State.

Earlier this week, Phegley was invited to the 2008 USA Baseball National Team
Trials. Phegley is one of 26 college underclassmen that have earned invites to
the Trials, which will take place from June 11-23 throughout the eastern part of
the United States. Of the 32 who will eventually be invited to the Trials, 22 will
be selected for the National Team, which will be chosen on June 24.

The Terre Haute, Ind., native was the only Big Ten player with an average over
.400 and also was the only one with an on-base percentage over .500 (.507). He
led the conference in average, hits, total bases, sacrifice flies, OBP and RBI on
the year, and finished second in runs (69) and slugging percentage (.746).
Phegley is currently second in the nation in average and fifth in RBI.

Phegley’s season places him in the top 10 in school history in a number of
categories. His season is among the Hoosiers’ all-time leaders in average (3rd ),
RBI (4th), runs (8th), hits (t-2nd), doubles (t-5th), home runs (t-7th ), extra-base
hits (t-7th ) and slugging (10th ). He also set a school and conference record for
RBI in Big Ten games by driving in 45 in 36 contests.

Congrats Josh for this outstanding accomplishment! !

I guess I’m just a baseball head, but it’s disturbing to me that few folk and I mean few saw this years IU baseball team play. Some of the finest baseball I’ve seen IU play in years!

IU, locals and local news sources should do a much better job getting the word out on the program and the special players setting records.

To much coverage of the hoops program off season overshadows other outstanding things going on within IU athletics.

I’ve beat this drum before, it doesn’t produce results, just sayin.

If you didn’t see this years team, you should get out and watch them next year. With returning our top 9 hitters (by avg) unless Means leaves for the draft and adding a solid recruiting class with two power hitters, a solid middle infielder, and two strong left handed pitches, IU should be stronger next year and right there for the Big 10 title.

The battle for the Ugg boot is a story about cultural identity and survival in the age of globalisation. The ‘David and Goliath’ plot pits a small group of Australian manufacturers and their distributors, against a large US corporation that have claimed Aussie icon, the Ugg boot, as its own. This has triggered a conflict that will set precedents for trademarks and branding worldwide.
