OMAHA, Neb. – Cameron Scott was named one of 40 semifinalists for the 2013 Tino Martinez Award announced by CollegeBaseballLineup.com. The annual award is presented to the most outstanding player in NCAA Division II college baseball. 

Scott, who was named the Peach Belt Conference Player of the Year last week, had one of the finest seasons in CSU history. 

The switch hitter finished the season hitting .411 which leads the PBC and is 22nd in the nation. He also leads the nation with 79 RBIs and is third in the country with 88 hits. Scott has also added five home runs. 

Scott registered 21 doubles, the seventh most in the nation, and a .457 on-base percentage. He also had 24 games with two or more hits, including six with four or more. 

The Griffin native left his mark on the CSU single-season record book ranking fourth in RBIs, tied for eighth in doubles and tied for ninth in batting average. 

The Tino Martinez Award is named after former Tampa and Major League Player Tino Martinez. Initial nominations for the award were made by Sports Information Directors and media members. A panel of media members and coaches will be polled to finalize the candidates which will be announced on Monday, May 20. The winner of the award will be named at the conclusion of the DII College Baseball World Series on June 1 in Cary, N.C.
