Big 12 Co-Player of the Year - Hunter Hargrove

Clearly the Big 12 can’t have one person or team be the top overall, so the player of the year was shared by Hargrove and Evan Skoug of TCU. Hargrove was a powerful force on a Tech team that led conference play in almost every major offensive statistic. Hargrove finished the year hitting .347 (5th) with 75 hits (2nd), 22 doubles (1st) and 51 RBI’s (4th).

Big 12 Pitcher of the Year - Steven Gingery

Coming into the season, Gingery was seen by many as the best pitcher in the conference, and he lived up to it. With injuries to teammate Davis Martin and TCU ace Jared Janczak, the door was open for Steven and he took it. Gingery went 8-1 in 13 games with a 1.82 ERA in 79.1 innings pitched. He struck out 93 while walking 24 and averaged over 10 strikeout’s per 9 innings pitched.

Big 12 Freshman of the Year - Josh Jung

Josh Jung, who plays like a seasoned veteran but is actually just a freshman, not only led Tech in runs with 53 this year, but led the entire Big 12. He hit over .300 for the year and over .350 in conference play and led the team in walks. Josh was also the lone Red Raider on the All-Big 12 Second Team.

All-Big 12 First Team

Joining Hargrove and Gingery on the 1st team were Orlando Garcia and Cody Farhat. Garcia finished the year with 11 home runs, good for 3rd in the conference to go along with 55 RBI’s (2nd) and 107 total bases (7th). Farhat led the conference with 6 triples on a team that had 10 more triples than the next closest team. Cody had 2 triples and scored 5 runs in a game against New Mexico, both conference highs for this season.

Honorable Mention

Parker Mushinski was awarded honorable mention for his work out of the bullpen this year. Mushinski went 3-4 with 4 saves in 28 appearances this year and was part of a bullpen resurgence in the latter half of the season that helped clinch the conference title.

All-Freshman Team

Joining Jung on the All-Freshman team were Michael Berglund and Grant Little. Berglund solidified himself as the #1 catcher this year, starting in 44 games and hit .308 for the season. Grant Little led the team with a .351 average, good for 3rd in the Big 12 and was tied with Hargrove with 49 runs scored.
