Hunter Hargrove was at the plate yesterday afternoon in the top of the 9th inning with two outs and two on in what would be his final college at bat. It didn't go the way he had dreamed of, but it won't diminish the fantastic season he's had at Texas Tech.

The Co-Big 12 Player of the Year was asked to do the impossible task of filling the shoes of Eric Gutierrez, and he nailed it.

Hargrove did everything he could this season to ensure a great year for the Red Raiders and they accomplished a great deal. A second straight Big 12 Title is a huge deal. It's an even bigger deal at Texas Tech, where Big 12 Championships are few and far between.
