DURHAM, N.C. - Indiana State junior starting pitcher Sean Manaea earned selection to the Preseason Golden Spikes Award Watch List today (Feb. 14), an award presented by USA Baseball at the end of the season to the top amateur baseball player in the country.

Manaea is one of 50 student-athletes from around the nation to earn selection to the preseason list and is joined by Missouri State's Nick Petree in representing the Missouri Valley Conference.

The Watch List features 50 of the nation's top amateur players, and it will be a "rolling" list to ensure that student-athletes can play themselves into consideration for the Golden Spikes Award. The Golden Spikes Award trophy will be awarded live on MLB Network for the third year in a row, with a live presentation scheduled during "The Rundown" on Friday, July 19. Through USA Baseball's partnership with Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM), the presentation will also be simulcast with a live stream available from GoldenSpikesAward.com and USABaseball.com.

"2013 marks the 36th year USA Baseball has presented the Golden Spikes Award, and with two of last year's finalists on this year's preseason Watch List, it should be another exciting year for amateur baseball," said Paul Seiler, USA Baseball executive director/CEO. "We look forward to an exciting start to the college baseball season this weekend and to following all of these players in the coming months."

Other past winners of the Golden Spikes Award include Terry Francona (1980), Will Clark (1985), Robin Ventura (1988), Jason Varitek (1994), J.D. Drew (1997), Mark Prior (2001), Jered Weaver (2004), Tim Lincecum (2006) and David Price (2007).
