The College Baseball Foundation this afternoon released their 2012 National Pitcher of the Year Watch List.  There are 51 pitchers on the list including seven from the Big 12 and Texas Tech's Duke von Schamann.  The SEC leads all conferences with 10 pitchers on the watch list.

The winner of the Pitcher of the Year Award will be announced on June 30 in Lubbock, Texas, as part of the annual College Baseball Night of Champions. The event features the presentation of numerous awards and the induction ceremony for this year’s Hall of Fame class.

“The pitchers featured on this top 50 list have been dominant all season,” said Justin Knowles, Pitcher of the Year Award co-chair. “They have impressive individual game statistics as well as season-long numbers that justify their inclusion on the list. I look forward to seeing how they finish the last month of the season.”
