OF Hunter Pence isn't going to win any beauty contests, but he swings one of meanest bats in Texas. Pence, the Southland Conference player of the year, led the league in batting (.395) and slugging (.616). He looks gangly at 6-foot-4 and 215 pounds and his swing isn't a classic stroke. But he has good plate coverage and strength, and he runs well for his size. His arm strength will limit him to left field.
