The Sooner Athletic Conference has announced its 2017 all-conference baseball team and top individual awards. The team was voted on by the conference's nine baseball coaches.  Player-of-the-Year honors went to OCU outfielder Jared Baker. The senior from Edmond, Okla. helped the Stars to both the regular-season and tournament championship. He led OCU with a .409 batting average and was the league-leader in home runs with 18 and RBI's with 78.

OCU's Denney Crabaugh was named the SAC Baseball Coach-of-the-year. Now in his 29th year at OCU, Crabaugh has led the Stars to a 45-8 overall record and a No. 1 ranking in the latest NAIA National Poll.
