Two Sooners Named To Golden Spikes Award Watch List

Two Oklahoma pitchers, Dillon Overton and Jonathan Gray, were named to the USA Baseball's Preseason Golden Spikes Award watch list. The watch list includes 50 players and in addition to Overton and Gray, Texas' Corey Knebel and Kansas State's Jared King were also listed to give the Big 12 four representatives on the list.

More detail on the Golden Spikes Award courtesy of the Big 12 Conference:

The Golden Spikes Award will carry a rolling watch list to ensure that athletes can play themselves into consideration for the award. The Golden Spikes Award trophy will be awarded live on the MLB Network for the third year in a row with a presentation scheduled during The Rundown on Friday, July 19.

Following the release of a second, 60-player watch list on Thursday, May 2, USA Baseball officials will announce the 30 semifinalists for the 2013 Golden Spikes Award on Tuesday, May 28. The list of 30 will then be sent to a voting body consisting of past USA Baseball National Team coaches and press officers, members of the media that closely follow the amateur game, select professional baseball personnel and current USA Baseball staff, representing a group of more than 200 voters in total.

Fan voting will once again be a part of the Golden Spikes Award in 2013. Tuesday, May 28, marks the first day when amateur baseball fans from across the country will be able to vote for their favorite semifinalist on GoldenSpikesAward.com. As part of this selection process, all voters will be asked to choose three players from the list of 30. On Tuesday, June 4, USA Baseball will announce the three finalists, and voting will once again commence that same day.
