Shoppach to be honored by alma mater Baylor
ST. PETERSBURG -- Kelly Shoppach will be honored on the weekend of Nov. 4-5 by his alma mater, Baylor University, when he is inducted into the school's Athletic Hall of Fame along with five other former Bears athletes.

Shoppach was a two-year starter at catcher for the Bears, earning consensus All-America honors as a junior in 2001, and he was the inaugural Johnny Bench Award winner as the nation's top collegiate catcher in 2001. In addition, Shoppach was the 2001 Easton Defensive Player of the Year.

Shoppach established Baylor single-season records for a catcher in 2001 when he had 93 hits, 69 RBIs and a .463 on-base percentage. That same season, he ran off a 28-game hitting streak, which ranks as the second longest in school history. For his efforts in 2001, Shoppach earned Big 12 Player of the Year honors.
