The National Fastpitch Coaches Association released the lists of the top-10 finalists for the National Freshman of the Year award and the National Player of the Year award. Fresh off taking down the Big 10 Freshman of the Year and Pitcher of the Year titles, Meghan Beaubien continues her assault on the trophy case.
Beaubien is one of only 3 freshmen to make it onto both lists, indicating that she has a legitimate shot at the Freshman of the Year award. She'll probably have to wait a year or two before making a serious run at National POY, but you never know. The top 3 for both of these awards will be released on May 23, and the awards presented at a banquet before the WCWS on May 29.
Beaubien is the first Wolverine to be in the top-10 as a freshman since Sierra Romero. I'll just leave that fact out there for you to ponder.
