    Western Kentucky made its deepest NCAA playoff run ever, reaching the regional finals. Third baseman Wade Gaynor became the first Hilltopper ever to record a 20-20 season, batting .371 with 25 homers and 21 steals. The 6-foot-4, 213-pounder stands out for his size, bat speed and righthanded power. He has a lot of hand movement before he swings, which could affect his ability to hit for average in pro ball. He has athleticism but is an inconsistent defender.
