Dansby Swanson Named College World Series Most Outstanding Player

All that...and he dances! - Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Dansby Swanson is made of magic. He batted an astounding .323 in TD Ameritrade Park's pitcher-friendly confines to lead the Commodores past Virginia and to their first-ever NCAA Baseball Championship.

Vanderbilt second baseman has been named the 2014 College World Series Most Outstanding Player. The sophomore batted .323 with five runs scored and two RBI in Omaha to lead the Commodores to their first-ever men's national championship.

Swanson beat out some stiff competition from his own teammates. Tyler Campbell emerged from the shadows to give the 'Dores a clutch presence at the bottom of the order after filling in for suspended third baseman Xavier Turner. John Norwood was the team's most aggressive offensive threat. Rhett Wiseman and Bryan Reynolds both played a huge role in getting the Commodores to Wednesday's national title game.

And that doesn't even take Vandy's pitching staff into account.

In the end, however, Swanson's clutch batting and even better play at second base earned him the biggest honor a single player can receive in Omaha. The sophomore will now return to Vanderbilt as an early favorite for All-American status as the 2015 season draws near.
