VESTAL, N.Y. -- Binghamton baseball pitcher Greg Lane (Binghamton, N.Y.) is among the players selected for the 2009 Brooks Wallace Player of the Year Award Watch List, released by the College Baseball Foundation. He is the second BU player in as many years to be included. Junior pitcher Jeff Dennis was on last year's list.
The Wallace Award is presented to the nation's top collegiate baseball player. The award is dedicated to the memory of the former Texas Tech player and assistant coach Brooks Wallace, who played within the Texas Rangers' organization before his untimely death at age 27.

Lane, a 6-foot-2 righthander, owned a 1.97 earned run average and chipped in three wins in addition to his saves total.
Lane transferred from Hofstra after his freshman season and has pitched the last two years for the Bearcats. He is a former scholastic all-star from nearby Binghamton High School.
