We recently received this comment after posting our weekly look at the Division One college baseball stats leaders:

“I would like to see the stat leaders from the top 7 conferences and how they stack up. The offensive stats leaders are mostly mid-majors with weak pitching. The pitching leaders re from the power conferences. There is a correlation. Put those offensive stat leaders in the SEC, ACC, Big 12, PAC 10, Big West and C-USA and none would be hitting over .400 with double digit HR’s.”

There is some validity to the comments, but there are problems with it as well. First, “the top 7 conferences” are referenced, but only six conferences are specified. Second, a look at last year’s conference RPI (per Warrennolan.com) has the Big West ranked as the eighth-best conference, with the Big East and Sun Belt ranked sixth and seventh, respectively.

And finally, trying to determine how a player would fare if he played in a “tougher” conference can be an apples to oranges argument. For instance, Siena’s Dan Paolini currently ranks 8th in the nation with 14 home runs after hitting 26 last year. If Paolini were in the ACC or SEC  he may or may not have as much success against higher caliber pitching, but he would also have more consistently warmer weather (helping the carry of the ball) and typically smaller ballpark dimensions in which to hit compared to much colder weather (not conducive to aluminum bat hitting) and bigger yards up north.

The original comment is worth taking a look at though, specifically the six conferences that were mentioned. Those conferences do tend to consistently have more multiple NCAA bids and teams that end-up at the College World Series. The fact that there are 23 pitchers from those six conference among the nation’s top 50 ERA leaders also adds validity to the claim (see below).

So, after scanning the top 50 in select statistical categories, here’s a look at who the leaders from the “power conferences” would be as of April 24 (actual national NCAA ranks in parenthesis) in batting average, home runs, RBIs, and ERA:
