The three Oregon State selections are second most in the country, behind only Virginia. Conforto is the lone player from the Pac-12 Conference on the first team while Moore and Davis join Stanford’s Alex Blandino and UCLA’s David Berg as second-team selections from the league.
It is Conforto’s second preseason first-team selection, and for good reason. He was named the Pac-12’s Player of the Year in 2013 after batting .328 with a league-leading 11 home runs and 47 runs driven in. He comes into his junior year with 24 career home runs, just 11 shy of the program’s all-time record.
For Davis and Moore, it is their third preseason honors.
Davis led the Pac-12 with 61 RBI in 2013 and paced the Beavers with a .335 batting average en route to being named a first-team all-league selection. He also stole nine bases in 12 attempts.
Moore tied for the nation’s lead with a 14-2 record last season and his 1.79 earned run average ranks in the top 10 for a single season at OSU. He was named a first-team All-American by multiple organizations and was named the Pac-12’s Freshman of the Year.
