DeRenne, Diggins, Gingrich Earn All-Pac-10 Honors

TUCSON, Ariz.Three Arizona Wildcats, junior shortstop Keoni DeRenne, sophomore right-hander/designated hitter Ben Diggins and senior center fielder Troy Gingrich, were named to the 2000 All-Pac-10 team Monday as voted on by the league's coaches.

DeRenne, a three-year starter for the Cats, earned his second all-conference honor by posting career highs in batting (.362) and home runs (7). He's tied for sixth in the league with 13 stolen bases.

Diggins, who has already earned first-team All-America honors from Baseball Weekly, went 10-4, 3.83 on the mound and hit .336-9-34. He'll finish among the conference leaders in wins, earned-run average, strike outs and innings pitched. Diggins is rated the top collegiate prospect in this year's major league draft by Baseball America.

Gingrich paces the Pac-10 with 25 stolen bases and shares the conference lead with six triples. He led the Cats in at-bats (226), runs (66), hits (83), triples, walks (37), on-base percentage (.455) and steals. Gingrich is the only Arizona player to have appeared in every game this season, as he played center field and hit leadoff in all 56 contests.

Junior first baseman Ernie Durazo, who hit .365-11-51 and led the Cats in doubles (16), homers, extra-base hits (31), total bases (126) and slugging percentage (.667), earned honorable mention All-Pac-10 honors. The complete list of Conference honors:
