Greg Mahle of UCSB Named Knights' MVP

All-WCL Infielder Marc Gallegos to Return in 2013.

Infielder Marc Gallegos of Corban University will return in 2013 for his second season with the Knights.

A sophomore from Astoria who played shortstop and second base, Gallegos hit .309 in 52 games, with no homers, 19 RBIs and a team-record 25 stolen bases. Originally a 10-day signee, he earned a full-time position and eventually led the Knights in runs (36) and hits (58), and was second-team all-West Coast League.

Gallegos hit .346, with 26 RBIs and 33 steals, at Corban in 2012 and was an NAIA West first-team all-star selection, and an NAIA West Gold Glove selection.

Team honors announced

Pitcher/1B/DH Greg Mahle of UC Santa Barbara (pictured above, pitching during his no-hitter against Cowlitz) was named the Knights Most Outstanding Player for 2012 in a vote of the coaches. He led the Knights with a .337 average and was 3-1, 2.54 as a pitcher, with three saves and the first nine-inning no-hitter in Corvallis Knights history.

Rob Dittrick of Pacific University was named the Most Valuable Pitcher. He was 5-1, 0.95 overall and led the WCL with a 1.10 ERA in league games. Another 10-day signee, he led the team in wins (5), innings (57) and strikeouts (33).

Catcher/infielder Chris Rabago of UC Irvine earned the Joe Segel Hustle Award, given to the player who best exemplifies the spirit of the Knights. Segel is the team's co-founder.
