The voters have spoken, and Tyler Bosetti has been named Nevada Sports Net's top Wolf Pack athlete for the 2020-21 season.

The Wolf Pack baseball star received a groundswell of support to rise above other great performances by Nevada athletes this year in our 16-player bracket. Bosetti beat All-Mountain West golfer Victoria Gailey in the Sweet 16; MW baseball player of the year Dillan Shrum in the Elite 8; MW football player of the year Carson Strong in the Final Four; and All-MW point guard Grant Sherfield in the championship round.

In his fourth season at Nevada, Bosetti, a third baseman, earned second-team All-American and first-team All-MW honors while setting the NCAA record for consecutive games with a homer at nine from April 24-May 11. He hit .328, slugging .641 and racked up 64 hits, 22 doubles, three triples, 11 home runs, 47 RBIs and 46 runs scored. He had 17 multi-hit games, which ranked third on the team, and had 12 games with multiple RBIs. Bosetti finished fourth in the nation in doubles per game (0.49).

The senior helped lead Nevada to its third regular-season MW championship and first NCAA Tournament berth since 2000. Bosetti has one additional season of college eligibility remaining as the 2019-20 season did not count toward his eligibility due to COVID-19 shortening the campaign. Bosetti could opt to turn pro if he's selected in MLB's 20-round draft, which begins Sunday.
