Oklahoma City, Okla. - Seniors Jason Bartlett and Greg Dobbs represented Oklahoma on the Big 12 Conference Baseball All-Tournament Team as announced by the league offices at the conclusion of the tournament on Sunday afternoon. Bartlett was the tournament's third base selection, while Dobbs was chosen at the utility position. Nebraska first baseman Dan Johnson was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Player following the Cornhuskers' 7-4 win over Texas A&M in the championship game to capture their third-straight tournament title.
Bartlett was the team's hottest hitter during the tournament in which the Sooners finished 2-2. The Lodi, Calif., native batted .500 (8-for-16) with three runs scored and four RBIs to lead OU. He collected three multi-hit performances in the four games and registered a double, triple and a home run, which sparked a four-run rally to help Oklahoma come-from-behind and defeat third-seeded Texas on Friday.
Dobbs matched Bartlett's runs scored and RBI production and hit .438 (7-for-16) during the tournament. The Moreno Valley, Calif., native collected at least one hit in three of the four contests and turned in a two home run performance in OU's tournament-opener against No. 2 Texas Tech.
Rounding off the all-tournament team was: catcher - Kelly Shoppach, Baylor, first base - Dan Johnson, Nebraska, second base - Nebasett Brown, Oklahoma State, shortstop - Jake Brown, Iowa State, outfield - Jimbo McAuliff, Oklahoma State, Jake Bollig, Oklahoma State, and John Cole, Nebraska, designated hitter - Ben Himes, Texas A&M, and Matt Hopper, Nebraska, starting pitcher - Shane Komine, Nebraska, and Chris French, Texas A&M, and relief pitcher - Chris Russ, Texas A&M.
The all-tournament team was voted on by a panel of media covering the tournament as well as each participating school's media relations representative.
