Tigers' Busboom earns preseason all-region

By The Hays Daily News

Fort Hays State University senior Ryan Busboom was named to the NCBWA Preseason All-Central Region Team.

Busboom, the 2012 Daktronics South Central Region Player of the Year and all-MIAA first-team selection, was a first-team selection as an outfielder, but he likely will move to the infield this season.

FHSU moved to the Central Region this season after the NCAA realigned the regions prior to the start of this year.

Busboom hit .386 with 16 home runs, 17 doubles, 66 RBIs and 50 runs scored.

He is one of seven MIAA players named to preseason all-region first team.

The Tigers' season begins Feb. 8 at Metropolitan State College of Denver.
