From Post staff reports
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The NAIA has named Cumberland senior third baseman Matt Greener the 2010 Rawlings-NAIA National Player of the Year.
Greener becomes the first Bulldog to win Player of the Year honors since the awards’ inception in 1983.
He is hitting .380 (5-for-13) with one home run and four RBIs during the World Series and has helped the Bulldogs reach the tournament finals.
During a season that has seen Cumberland go 57-9 and make its 11th World Series, Greener has been an instrumental part of the success. On the year, he led the NAIA in hits (112) and RBIs (95) and tied for first in home runs (26).
In 241 at-bats, the product of Jupiter, Fla., hit .465 with 26 doubles. Greener has played in 64 of the team’s 65 games this season. He has 37 multi-hit games, including 13 of three or more base knocks.
He began the season on an 11-game hitting streak and amazingly, he has recorded a hit in 59 of the 64 games that he has appeared in.
Greener is one of four Bulldogs on the All-America first team, including pitcher Shawn Schaefer and outfielders Troy Frazier and Kris Miller giving CU the most First Teamers of any school this year. Junior RHP Aaron Wilkerson was a second team All-America pick.
