OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — Kentucky two-way star A.J. Reed is winner of the Dick Howser Trophy as the top player in college baseball.

Reed was honored Saturday during a ceremony at the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska. The Houston Astros' second-round draft pick hit a nation-leading 23 home runs and had a 12-2 record as a pitcher.

Reed, who plays first base in addition to pitching, batted .336 with 73 RBIs and a .476 on-base percentage. He made 16 starts on the mound for Kentucky and had a 2.09 ERA.

The Howser Trophy is presented by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and Easton Foundations. It's named in memory of the former Florida State All-America shortstop and major league player and manager who died of brain cancer in 1987.
