Bohm’s 16 home runs were the most by a Shocker since 2004 and his 16th home run was his 200th career hit. Five of his home runs gave the Shockers the lead in a game.
He is a semifinalist for the Dick Howser Trophy and the Golden Spikes Award and earned second team all-conference honors in Wichita State’s first season in the American Athletic Conference.
