Players from all over the field certainly made impressions — some bad and some good –during the Big 12 Tournament. However, it was the Oklahoma State Cowboys making the biggest mark. Names from the roster litter the Big 12 All-Tournament Team but none gained higher recognition than Garrett McCain.
Throughout the regular season, McCain quickly gained recognition as the Big 12’s best hitter. The reputation carried over into the post season and the junior certainly lived up to the billing. Playing in all four games of the Big 12 Tournament, McCain stepped up to the plate sixteen times. Delivering eight RBIs, the outfielder set the pace for the Cowboys.
Now looking forward, the team will once again rely on the strengths and skills of players like McCain. Earning an automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament, Oklahoma State must await Regional host announcements. In the mean time, celebrations of completing the unexpected should tide the ballclub over!
