CLEMSON, S.C. - Freshman outfielder Seth Beer (Suwanee, Ga.) was named one of four finalists for the Golden Spikes Award on Monday. The 2016 season marks the 39th consecutive year the Golden Spikes Award is awarded to the top amateur baseball player in the United States. Beer is a finalist for the award that former Tiger shortstop Khalil Greene won in 2002.

Beer batted .369 with 57 runs, 13 doubles, 18 homers, 70 RBIs, a .700 slugging percentage, 62 walks, 15 hit-by-pitches, a .535 on-base percentage and one steal in 62 games. He ended the season on a 60-game on-base streak and had a 26-game hitting streak earlier in the season.

Beer, the 2016 ACC Player-of-the-Year, was also named a finalist for the Dick Howser Trophy. He will play for the USA Collegiate National Team this summer.

The Golden Spikes Award presentation airs on ESPN’s flagship program, SportsCenter, for the third consecutive year during the 7 p.m., show on June 30. Following the announcement of the award, all four finalists will be celebrated at the Jonathan Club Los Angeles as part of the 2016 Rod Dedeaux Award Dinner.

Fans will once again be able to vote for the 2016 award by visiting and selecting their favorite finalist. Voting for fans and the voting body ends on June 24 at 5 p.m.
