LUBBOCK, Texas -- The high-caliber athletes of the Southeastern Conference are on display with five players represented on the first Brooks Wallace Shortstop of the Year Award Watch List of the 2013 season.

The Brooks Wallace Award, sponsored by Mizuno, recognizes the nation's top shortstop and will be presented during the College Baseball Hall of Fame's Night of Champions on June 29 in Lubbock, Texas.

Other conferences with multiple representatives include the Pac-12 with four, the Big 10 with three and the ACC and Ohio Valley with two each.

"It's no wonder that some of these conferences have multiple players featured on the Wallace Award Watch List," said Tyler Young, award co-chair. "Of course, we're also excited to see a number of other conferences represented as well. This is a great list of players."

LSU's Alex Bregman has the best batting average of the 27 shortstops featured on the list at .441 in 32 games. He also has 31 RBIs and 60 hits. Ohio State's Kirby Pellant leads the list with a .989 fielding percentage.

"Each of these shortstops have some impressive statistics -- whether it's batting averages or fielding percentages," said Darby Brown, Wallace Award co-chair. "We look forward to seeing what they do during the upcoming weeks.
