The CBB continues our countdown to the 2009 College Baseball season with our Top 50 players to watch. We will be providing one player each day (Monday-Saturday) until we reach number 1.
We continue the list today with Junior infielder Joey Wong from Oregon State checking in at the 39th spot in our countdown. He is a 5’10 175 pound infielder from Sprague High School and Salem Oregon.
He has become the sparkplug in the Oregon State lineup since stepping on campus in the fall of 2006. He led the Oregon State Beavers to the 2007 NCAA Title by giving them solid defense and having 19 multi-hit games. He ended up finishing 2007 with a .288 average while scoring 41 runs in 67 games. In 2008, Wong actually decreased his amount of production dropping down to a batting average of .244 with five homers and 37 runs scored in 52 games.
He spent the summer of 2008 with the Falmouth Commodores of the Cape Cod League where he had a .256 average with 5 doubles. He needs to become more consistent and needs to hit for some more power to become a better MLB prospect as his defense will make him a utility player at least.
