TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State second baseman Marshall McDougall attended his first
class of the fall semester Monday, which means the All-American will return
for his senior season.
Last year, McDougall hit .419 with 28 home runs and
an NCAA leading 106 RBI. He also set an NCAA record with six home runs in
a game at Maryland. McDougall helped the Seminoles to a national runner-up
finish at the College World Series and was named the CWS MVP.
“I’m looking forward to coming back for my senior season,” said
McDougall. “We should have a very good team next year and hopefully we can
take another shot at the College World Series. Unfortunately things didn’t
work out with the Red Sox, but I believe things happen for a reason. I’ll work
hard this year and let those things work themselves out.”
McDougall was a 26th round draft choice of the Boston Red Sox
earlier this year. FSU lost three underclassmen to Major League teams (RHP
