Former Des Moines Area CC Baseball Player Named Minor League Player of the Year
 October 2, 2013

The Los Angeles Dodgers have named former Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) baseball player Scott Schebler the Branch Rickey Minor League Player of the Year.

Schebler led Class A Rancho Cucamonga with a .296 batting average and ranked among the California League leaders with 27 homers (2nd), 95 runs scored (4th), 13 triples (T-3rd), 91 RBI (7th) and a .581 slugging percentage (2nd) in 125 games. He also stole 16 bases and was one of only two California League hitters to finish the campaign with at least 20 home runs and 15 stolen bases. The left-handed hitter was the only Dodger minor leaguer to hit 20 or more doubles, 10 or more triples and 20 or more home runs in 2013.

Schebler, who turns 23 on Oct. 6, caught fire on June 12, when he started a season-high 18-game hitting streak (ended July 2), and batted .322 (94-for-292) with a league-best 44 extra-base hits, 186 total bases, 21 home runs and 67 RBI in 74 games through the conclusion of the season to earn a selection to the California League's Postseason All-Star Team. Schebler was honored as the league's Offensive Player of the Week for the period July 1-7, batting 13-for-29 with eight extra-base hits, including three home runs, and 10 RBI in seven games.

Schebler, who graduated from Cedar Rapids Prairie High School, where he named to the Class 4A all-state team, just completed his fourth professional season after being selected in the 26th round of the 2010 First-Year Player Draft out of Des Moines Area Community College and signed by scout Scott Little.

The Dodgers selected Schebler in the 26th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft. He was honored in an on-field pregame ceremony September 29 in the Dodgers regular-season finale against the Colorado Rockies.
