Let’s take a look at Georgia baseball’s all-time starting nine in this edition of the NCAA.com series of the best possible starting lineups for some of college baseball’s most successful programs.

Here is how we picked the team: We dug deep in the record books, only considering the players’ college career and accolades. Their achievements in professional baseball did not come into play. There was also consideration given to their positional fits and how well they fit into a batting order we made based on historical stats that could provide a combination of high batting averages, speed, and power.

CWS HISTORY: Coaches with most wins | Most titles | Most appearances

Georgia is a team back on the rise, finding itself in the top 10 for much of the 2019 season. The 1990 College World Series national champions obviously have plenty of history, so let’s dig deep into the record books and see who stands out as the best of the bunch.

Billy Henderson, outfield (1947-50)

Henderson is a no-brainer in the leadoff spot, putting up the career stats that show he’s the perfect catalyst for this lineup. The “Macon Meteor” is the Bulldogs’ all-time leader in stolen bases with 91, his 29 in 1950 leading all of the SEC. He hit two inside-the-park home runs in the 1949 season, and put up a .410 batting average in 1948, finishing his career with a .375 average — fifth-best in Georgia history. He is the epitome of a leadoff man.

Jeff Treadway, second base (1982-83)

Treadway only played two seasons in Athens, but he made them both count. Treadway could flat out hit, leading Georgia with a .392 average in 1983 and his .381 career batting average is still fourth all-time in Bulldogs history. He averaged 69 hits, 44 runs, eight home runs, and 43 RBI in his two seasons.

ALL-TIME NINES, SEC: LSU | South Carolina | Vanderbilt | Mississippi State | Florida

Doug Radziewicz, first base (1988-91)

This could easily have gone to Josh Morris, the all-time Bulldog home runs leader or Rich Poythress after his 2009 All-American season, but Radziewicz has a few things in his favor. For one, he was part of the Bulldogs lone national championship. Secondly, where he lacked in power (he still produced 21 home runs), he made up for in contact and run production, tied for the most hits in program history (282) and owner of the most runs scored (207) in Georgia history.

Gordon Beckham, shortstop (2006-08)

While we’d love to have Jeff Keppinger in this lineup, primarily based on his NCAA tournament heroics (23-for-46 with nine home runs in 10 career games) there’s no way Beckham is not the cleanup hitter on this team. Beckham won the 2008 SEC player of the year award after leading the nation with 29 home runs. His 53 round trips are most in program history, as are his 491 total bases, while he’s fourth in RBI (182) and second in runs scored (201).

ALL-TIME NINES, ACC: Miami | Florida State | Georgia Tech | Clemson | North Carolina | Virginia

Roger Miller, catcher (1986-89)

Not only was Miller strong with the stick, but he was also a feared presence behind the plate, throwing out more than 40% of attempted base stealers in his career. Miller had serious pop as well with 45 home runs, seven of which were grand slams. He’s the all-time Bulldog leader in RBI (226) and is tied with Radziewicz for the most hits. You’ll find his name all over Bulldog history books and he is perfect for the heart of the order.

Buck Belue, outfield (1979-82)

Maybe Belue’s place in Georgia history isn’t so much on the diamond as it is on the gridiron where he was the quarterback for the 1980 national champion Bulldog football team.
