K-State sophomore Austin Fisher up for college baseball’s top shortstop award

Kansas State sophomore shortstop Austin Fisher, formerly of Olathe Northwest, is one of 14 players still in consideration for the Brooks Wallace Award, given to the nation’s top shortstop.

Fisher hit .358 with 18 doubles, three triples, two home runs and 34 RBIs in the regular season for the Wildcats, who open the Big 12 tournament as the top seed and face Texas Tech at 12:30 p.m. Wednesday in their opening game. He led the Big 12 in conference-only batting average at .412, 36 points better than any other hitter.

The Brooks Wallace Award will be presented during the College Baseball Hall of Fame’s Night of Champions on June 29 in Lubbock, Texas.
