La Verne baseball player honored

University of La Verne baseball standout Scott Marcus has been named 2008 Second Team All-America by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA).

A senior from San Dimas, Marcus was selected to the Second Team as a designated hitter.

Marcus led ULV in homers (14), RBI (68) and slugging percentage (.771) while boasting of a .371 average this season en route to earning Southern California Intercollegiate Atletic Conference (SCIAC) Player of the Year honors. Marcus also earned First Team All-West Region this season.

Marcus was the lone SCIAC representative among the First, Second or Third Team selections. He becomes the first Leopard baseball All-American since pitcher Scott Lindeen was selected ABCA Second Team All-America in 2005.

La Verne earned a trip to the NCAA Division III Baseball Tournament this season by winning the SCIAC Championship, its 19th conference baseball title in school history.
