The 2007 NCBWA All-American Team has been released by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. We have the usual group of athletes on the team with Andy D’Alessio from Clemson coming back for his senior year. My favorite player in this group is Kellen Kulbacki who I had the chance to see play down the cape this summer and he impressed me with his talent in the field and also with the bat. Milan Dinga of Army has a very powerful arm and should be drafted this upcoming year but with his military service issues we should see if it hinders his prospects.
This is the first of the All-America teams of the year and I am starting to get ready to watch some good old fashion college baseball but it only happens for about a month and a half up here in the great white north of New England.
