was actually eating lunch after helping my brother out with practice, Hargrove said of what he was doing when he found out he was drafted. got a text message from the San Francisco scout who asked if I was ready to go. I replied and he told me I was next. Then the alert popped up on my phone. It was surreal. at the statistics, the Giants jerseys picked up a versatile and sturdy player.
Hargrove, who was one of two players to appear in and start in 62 games, finished his senior season hitting .348 with five home runs and 51 RBIs. The first baseman also hit 26 doubles and three triples for the Red Raiders, which reached the NCAA Regional round in back to back seasons for the second time in program history.
Texas Tech also earned a College World Series berth in 2016.
just honestly did what I could to help the team win in anyway I could. I gave it my all, said Hargrove, who was named the co Big 12 Player cheap mlb jerseys of the Year with TCU Evan Skoug. we were unable to get to where we want, but it was great to go out there with my teammates everyday. To get drafted, that just awesome too. Mansfield, who played outfield in 2015, third base in and first base last season, forged the Red Raiders longest hitting streak at 15 games this season. He also closed out the season by reaching base safely in 18 consecutive contests.
first year in college was at North Central Texas College (in Gainesville), and I didn know much about the school. So I kept quiet and worked, Hargrove said. work propelled me to get a scholarship at Tech and the rest is history. I was able to get Omaha with my teammates, which was an unbelievable experience. far as what position he play, Hargrove wasn sure and also did not know where his next stop would be just yet.
got drafted as a first baseman, but I taking all five of my gloves with me just in case, he said, chuckling. now, I going to hang out with family, hit in the cages and wash some clothes. I have to get ready for wherever I sent. select Red Raiders southpaw
