Wausau West grad nominee for top award

Former Wausau West (Wis.) High School star Seth McMullen is among the 151 top amateur athletes across the country who have been named to the 2013 Tino Martinez Award watch list, given to the best player in NCAA Division II baseball.

McMullen is a senior shortstop at Winona State (Minn.) University and is coming off one of the top performances in the school's history last year, a campaign that saw him hit .360 with nine home runs and 49 RBIs.

McMullen was an All-American, all-region and all-conference selection while helping the Warriors to the regional tournament for the third consecutive year.

The honor is named after the former University of Tampa standout, Olympian, first-round draft pick and Major League All-Star first baseman. He played with four teams, most notably the New York Yankees, during a 16-year big league career.

McMullen became the second Winona State player in three years to vie for the Tino Martinez Award, joining former La Crosse Logan player Tony Mueller, a 2011 nominee who is in the Atlanta farm system after being a 13th-round selection that June. Mueller also played for the La Cross Loggers of the Northwoods League before being drafted.

McMullen enjoyed a strong sophomore season, batting .317 with eight home runs and 33 RBIs and slugged at a .528 clip. He made 34 starts as a freshman, batting .350 in 120 at bats with 42 hits and 29 RBIs.
