With the days counting down until the college baseball world turns its eyes to Omaha for the College World Series, let's take a look at the guys most likely to go yard. Here are the players who currently lead Division I baseball in home runs:
Seth Beer | Clemson | Fr. | 14 Home Runs
Beer is hitting .425 in his freshman season with 39 RBIs and those 14 homers. In fact, Beer is leading the NCAA in home runs per game. He's one of the most exciting players in college baseball, as you'll see in that highlight reel above.
Jake Burger | Missouri St. | So. | 14 Home Runs
Jake Burger's batting average (.385) may not raise eyebrows when compared to his fellow underclassman, Beer. But the Missouri State sophomore is driving in more runs than Beer (46 RBIs) and has more base hits (52 to 45).
Heath Quinn | Samford | Jr. | 14 Home Runs
Spencer Johnson | Missouri St. | Sr. | 13 Home Runs
Kyle Lewis | Mercer | Jr. | 13 Home Runs
Kyle Nowlin | Eastern Kentucky | Sr. | 13 Home Runs
If Kyle Lewis is the best all-around hitter among the home run leaders, then Kyle Nowlin may be the most pure home-run threat. Nowlin is ranked 47th in the NCAA in slugging percentage, tied for 5th in HR per game and tied for 41st in RBI. But, the man can hit a homer.
Darick Hall | Dallas Baptist | Jr. | 12 Home Runs
