Cascadden is one of six in the Big 12 on the Brooks Wallace list and one of 75 in the country. In 37 games, he has hit .270 with 15 runs, 30 hits, a team-high nine doubles, one home run, 23 RBI, 11 walks and one steal.

Seay is one of two from the Big 12 on the two-way list and one of 25 in the country. As a batter, he is hitting .286 with three runs and two walks. As a pitcher, he is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in six appearances as he’s given up just four hits and no walks with five strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

The John Olerud Two-Way Player of the Year award is named for the former Washington State University standout who achieved success both as a first baseman and left-handed pitcher during the late 1980s and who was inducted into the National College Baseball Hall of Fame in 2007.
