USA Baseball has announced the finalists for the 2010 Golden Spikes Award and in keeping with their stated purpose of honoring the the top amateur baseball player in the country, as opposed to the top college player, overall #1 pick in the MLB Draft Bryce Harper is among the five players who remain in contention.

Despite his status as the two-time C-USA Player of the Year, Anthony Rendon did not make the cut, but UCF's Chris Duffy was included. 

Worth noting, Harper is the fourth non-D1 player to become a finalist for the Golden Spikes, joining Alex Fernandez (Miami Dade CC [JUCO], 1990), Michael Tucker (Longwood [Division II], 1992) and Alex Rodriguez (Westminster Christian High School [Fla.], 1993).  Fernandez remains the only junior college and non-Division I player to ever win the award.
