Oregon State catcher Adley Rutschman was named 2018 College World Series Most Outstanding Player after collecting a CWS-record 17 hits to go along with 13 RBIs to help the Beavers win their third national title.
Rutschman was part of an 11-man all-Men’s College World Series team that was selected by the media. Ten of the 11 selections played for Oregon State or Arkansas, the final two teams standing in Omaha.
The all-tournament team’s three outfielders do not have to play at different positions. The designated hitter may be someone who hit at that position throughout the CWS or a deserving player at a position that already has an outstanding player.

The two pitchers selected may both be left or right handed, and starters, relievers or one of each. The Most Outstanding Player must be a member of the 11-man all-CWS team.
