Zobrist to headline DBU baseball banquet
Tuesday, Jan 10, 2012
By Staff † †

DALLAS (BP)--Tampa Bay Ray and major league all-star Ben Zobrist will be the keynote speaker at the 20th annual Dallas Baptist Baseball Banquet Feb. 10 in the John G. Mahler Student Center on the DBU campus.

Zobrist, a native of Eureka, Ill., will begin his seventh year of Major League Baseball with Tampa Bay in 2012. He began his collegiate career at Olivet Nazarene University before transferring to Dallas Baptist for the 2004 season. He was named team captain during his senior year and helped lead the team to DBUís inaugural NCAA Division I record of 44 -16 and the 2004 National Christian College Athletic Association National Championship.

In December of 2004, Zobrist completed his Bachelor of Arts in communication from DBU.

The banquet will also serve as a time to honor the 2011 DBU baseball team that finished the year 42-20 and advanced to the NCAA Santa Clara Super Regional, the first time in program history a team has advanced past the Division I Regional Tournament.

The teamís final ranking of 16th in the nation was the highest in school history, and three members of the squad were selected in the MLB First Year Player Draft as Jason Krizan, Brandon Williamson and Chris Haney all continued their baseball careers at the professional level.
