Earlier today, Tyler Alexander was named a Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball News.
Alexander, a Southlake Carroll native, has a 10-3 record this season in 18 appearances, and is fourth in the Big 12 with a 1.94 ERA. In arguably the two biggest starts of his young career, the Big 12 Championship and the final game of the Fort Worth NCAA Regional, Alexander has pitched two complete games, allowing 10 hits and two earned runs while striking out 9 in those 18 innings of work.
Alexander, TCU's Sunday starter, hit a rough patch earlier in the season, briefly being removed from the rotation before working his way back in. He boasts the second best ERA among starters on the roster (1.94) and has pitched the second most innings (92.2), behind Preston Morrison in both categories.
If a game 3 is necessary in the Super Regional against Pepperdine, Alexander will get the call to try and help TCU get to their second College World Series.
Congratulations, Tyler, and Go Frogs!
