Arkansas right-hander Brady Tygart had an amazing first season in a Razorback uniform.
He struck out 51 batters over 37 innings in 24 appearances, nailing down 8 saves for Arkansas in his freshman campaign. Those numbers were big enough for D1Baseball to take notice, as they named Tygart 2nd team Freshman All-American.
He, along with starting pitcher Hagen Smith extended a streak this season by being named to the Freshman All-American team by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper early last month, which marked the sixth straight season that a first-year player has earned an All-American nod.
Tygart earned his second All-American honor during Arkansas’ stay in the College World Series, as the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association included Tygart in their Freshman All-American honors.
Tygart was one of two SEC players to be named second team All-American by D1Baseball, joining Mississippi State’s Hunter Hines. Out of all pitchers named Freshman All-American, Tygart earned the most saves.
