Not that this is any sort of surprise, but Preston Morrison has been named Big 12 Pitcher of the Year. The junior finished the regular season 8-3 and a league leading 1.18 ERA. P-Mo also tallied 70 strikeouts in just under 100 innings.
This is his second time be awarded pitcher of the year, as Morrison won his first as a freshman when TCU was still in the Mountain West.
In addition to Morrison; Brandon Finnegan, Riley Ferrell and Boomer White were all Big 12 First team selections as well. But the biggest snub went to Tyler Alexander, who despite having a monstrous second half and playing a huge role in TCU's surge, was only named to the Second team. It would seem Alexander was also a worthy candidate for Newcomer of the year, but that went to Adam Kirsch of Texas Tech.
The Frogs kick off the conference tournament tomorrow against Baylor. A strong Big 12 tournament showing still gives TCU hope in
getting earning a National seed. But more on that later.
In the meantime, let's give it up for Morrison and the rest of this 2014 team.
