With the MLB Draft now less than 48 hours away, each Draft prospect is trying to put their best foot forward, and catcher Shea Langeliers did just that on Saturday.
Langeliers, who is known for his defensive prowess, put everyone in the country on notice by setting an NCAA baseball tournament record with 11 RBIs in Baylor’s 24-6 victory over Omaha, eliminating the Mavericks from the Los Angeles Regional.
The Buster Posey Award (formerly the Johnny Bench Award) semifinalist went 5-for-6 on his career day, including three home runs. He also added a three-run double for good measure.
"One through nine, everybody believes in each other on this team and anybody is capable of doing what I did today. That's a team accolade," Langeliers said after the game. "I just came up in the right situations and happened to come through. It was a great team effort today, everybody was on base, everybody was getting hits."
“When I was a little kid, I like to think I was a pretty good hitter, but I think this game will probably be one of the most meaningful games for me as a hitter, probably for the rest of my baseball career,” Langeliers said.
