Alabama's Mikey White on Golden Spikes watch list

Posted: Updated:

Mikey White will start the college baseball season as one of the top players in the nation.

Alabama's shortstop was named to the USA Baseball preseason Golden Spikes Award watch list. The former Spain Park star is one of 60 players on the watch list.

Alabama has had one player win the Golden Spikes Award, when David Magadan captured the honor in 1983.

White led Alabama with a .350 batting average in SEC play last season and earned second team All-SEC honors. The Tide finished 35-28 and advanced to the Tallahassee Regional in 2013.

Alabama opens the 2014 baseball season Friday night against St. Louis. The game is scheduled for 6:05 p.m. at Sewell-Thomas Stadium.

The Tide and Bilikens will also play Saturday at 2:05 p.m. and Sunday at 1:05 p.m.
