One of the most important aspects of playing baseball, and one of the hardest to achieve, is consistency. The season is long and demanding, and any player who keeps his level of play high over its course is coveted. That's why we honor Saint Leo centerfielder Allen Dina. The senior has not only excelled, but has actually stepped up the pace. The Stratford, Conn., native was named the Sunshine State Conference player of the week after going 8-for-13 with two home runs, a double, eight RBI and four runs. Dina was batting .500 (92-for-184) going into a weekend series with Barry. He hasn't dipped below that level much all season, and leads the conference in batting average, hits, triples (14) and runs (65). He is also fourth in doubles (17) and eighth in stolen bases (15). Dina's 14 triples are a school single-season record and tie him for the NCAA Division II mark set in 1971 and matched in 1982. His 23 career triples also are a school record and four off the national record of 27.
