Over the course of the 2020 season, the Army West Point Baseball program will highlight the accomplishments of their alumni over the last 10 years by naming members to the Army West Point Baseball All-Decade Team.
The team was voted on by a committee of Army coaches and administrators who spent time with the team from 2010-2019. Each recipient displayed excellence on the field and was recognized for their athletic achievements during their time at West Point. These players helped continue the legacy of Army baseball while setting new standards for the program.
This week, we focus on three infielders who have been recognized as members of Army Baseball's All-Decade Team.
Kris Lindner, Class of 2017: .296 avg., 5 HRs, 72 RBIs, 160 hits, 106 runs scored, 43 SB
A staple in the top half of the Army batting order, Kris Linder showed excellence both on the field and in the classroom during his time at Army. His tenure at Army was accolade filled, as he was the 2017 Patriot League Scholar Athlete of the Year in addition to being a two-time First Team All-Patriot League honoree.
Clint Moore, Class of 2011:.332 avg., 35 HRs, 183 RBIs, 233 hits, 174 runs scored
Widely regarded as the greatest offensive player in program history, Clint Moore's name is written across the top of most categories in the Army record book. He is the program's all-time leader in home runs (35), runs batted in (185), runs scored (T-174), total bases (413) and slugging percentage (.589). The five-time All-American helped lead Army to three Patriot League Championships. He was a four-time First Team All-Patriot League recipient and a finalist for the Brooks Wallace Award for the best shortstop in the nation. In 2011, he was selected in the 34thround of the Major League Baseball draft by the San Diego Padres.
Zach Price, Class of 2012:.320 avg., 241 hits, 174 runs scored, 55 SB
One of the great table-setters in program history, Zach Price was the ideal hitter atop the Army lineup. He is tied for the program record in runs scored (174) and ranks third in hits (241). In 2012, he became the first Army player to be named a Rawlings Gold Glove recipient, where he was recognized as the top defensive second basement in the country. Price was a model student- athlete, being named an Academic All-American and Patriot League Scholar Athlete of the Year in addition to his three First Team All-Patriot League nods and Senior CLASS All-American recognition.
