  • Second Baseman Brad Bell leads the nation in HBPs with 17.  He is just one short of breaking the Grizzlies single season record held by Nick Hergesheimer who set this record last season.  (It should be noted that Bell wears #37–which holds the same legacy in UM Baseball as it does in UM Football–the toughest, most hard-nosed player gets that jersey number handed to him by the previous #37.)
