TexasTech.com

A Texas Tech baseball player is in the running for an annual award.

Red Raider junior second baseman Jamodrick McGruder has been named one of 35 semifinalists for the 2012 Dick Howser Trophy.

McGruder is the first Tech player to be named a semifinalist for the Howser trophy since 2004, when All-American first baseman Josh Brady was nominated.

McGruder batted .358 with 54 runs, eight triples, 45 walks, .500 on-base percentage, and is third in the nation with 39 stolen bases. He led the Big 12 Conference in 10 statistical categories.

Five other Big 12 players were nominated, including Baylor’s Trent Blank and Josh Ludy, Oklahoma State’s Andrew Heaney, and Texas A&M pitchers Ross Stripling and Michael Wacha.

McGruder sports 90 career stolen bases, ranking second in both Texas Tech and Big 12 History.

The Dick Howser Trophy, named for the man who managed the Florida State Seminoles, New York Yankees, and the Kansas Series Royals, is considered one of the top awards for college baseball players.

The award will be presented in Omaha, Nebraska, on Friday, June 15th, at 11 a.m.
