Another Postseason Honor for PLU's Brock Gates

Brock Gates

All-West Region Team

Pacific Lutheran senior first baseman Brock Gates has earned d3baseball.com 2012 All-West Region honors, and he is joined on the list by teammate and third team choice Jacob Hoffman.

Gates (Federal Way, Wash. / Decatur HS) was the Northwest Conference Player of the Year after leading the 24-16 Lutes in hitting (.407), home runs (7) and runs batted in (47). Gates also stole eight bases. He started all 40 PLU games and received first team all-conference recognition for the second straight season.

Hoffman (Fircrest, Wash. / Curtis HS), a sophomore designated hitter, recovered well enough from off-season shoulder surgery to hit .344 with four homers and 32 runs batted in. He is a two-time first team all-conference honoree.
