Meyers named John Olerud Award finalist

Jake Meyers has been named one of five finalists for the John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year Award, announced by the College Baseball Foundation on Wednesday.

The former Omaha Westside Warrior was an integral part in getting Nebraska back to the NCAA Tournament for the third time in four years.

On the mound this season, the left hander is 8-1 with a 3.09 ERA, tied for best among Husker starting pitchers. Meanwhile, Meyers' .302 batting average is good for fourth on the team.

Meyers earned first-team all-Big Ten honors as a utility player this season. He has made 13 starts as a pitcher, 39 starts in centerfield, and 12 as the designated hitter.

The award will be presented by the College Baseball Foundation later this summer.  Nebraska opens NCAA regional action against Yale Friday afternoon at 3 p.m. on ESPN 3.
