SEATTLE - The Washington baseball team's class of incoming players for the 2012 seasons has drawn recognition from several of the country's national publications as both Baseball America and Collegiate Baseball ranked it among the best in the west.
The class, which initially included a total of 21 signees, was ranked No. 33 in the nation.
Baseball America praised the group as one of the tops in West, noting that the UW "brought in its best class in years, headlined by 12th-round pick Trevor Mitsui."
Mitsui, a first baseman from Shorewood High School, is one of four incoming players who were selected in last June's Major League Draft who enrolled at the UW this fall. Joining him are pitcher George Asmus, pitcher Jared Fisher and infielder Erik Forgione.
The Huskies, under third-year head coach Lindsay Meggs, closed out their 2011 fall practice season last week and now look forward to the start of the 2012 season, which gets underway with a three-game series at San Diego State Feb. 17-19.
