LUBBOCK, Texas--University of Utah 2006 All-American Ryan Khoury has been included on the College Baseball Foundation and Hall of Fame's annual "Hall of Fame Spotlight." The yearly list serves to highlight college baseball players, who have recently concluded their eligibility, having the most potential to one day be inducted into the new College Baseball Hall of Fame, in Lubbock, Texas.
The CBF Hall of Fame Spotlight focuses on players who attained 2006 first-team All-America status on at least one of the five major teams as chosen by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, College Baseball Foundation, American Baseball Coaches Association, Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball. Factors such as level of competition, statistics and team success all play a part in these selections.
To qualify for the College Baseball Hall of Fame, a player must have earned first-team All-America status; those players who have attained this level of recognition are then eligible for College Baseball Hall of Fame consideration five years after their college playing career ends, and immediately after their potential professional baseball career concludes.
The complete list of 2007 nominees under consideration will be available in March. Those individuals, in addition to the criteria and timeline for Hall of Fame nomination for players and coaches, can be accessed on the College Baseball Foundation website at: www.collegebaseballfoundation.org.
