  1. Official release from UT Huston Street joins baseball as student assistant Longhorn great and 13-year Major League Baseball veteran set to join the baseball staff. 08.15.2019 AUSTIN, Texas – Texas Baseball head coach David Pierce has announced that 13-year Major League Baseball veteran and former Longhorn great Huston Street will join the Longhorns staff as a student assistant. "Huston Street has a passion for The University of Texas, especially Texas Baseball, and will be an asset for the program in many capacities during the 2020 season," Pierce said. "Obviously Huston has exhausted his eligibility but he is planning to return to campus to complete his degree and give back to the program that he helped win a National Championship. He loves competition, has so much to offer and his presence will be awesome for our players. The bottom line is he's a winner." Street played 13 MLB seasons for the Oakland Athletics, Colorado Rockies, San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Angels. Selected with the 40th pick in the 2004 MLB Draft by the Oakland Athletics, Street quickly made his mark on the major league level by winning the 2005 AL Rookie of the Year award. He pitched in 668 major league games, amassing 324 career saves, and was a two-time All-Star. A three-time All-American at Texas and the MVP of the 2002 College World Series, Street holds the Longhorn and College World Series records for career saves. He finished his Longhorn career with 41 saves and a 1.31 ERA, the second best in program history. He is the all-time College World Series leader in saves with five, and set the single-series record of four in 2002. From 2009-11, Street and new Longhorn assistant coach Troy Tulowitzki were teammates with the Colorado Rockies. Street is a member of the Texas Athletics Hall of Honor and the Omaha College Baseball Hall of Fame.
  2. Orrrrr....it could be GENIUS! Glass half-full, man!
  3. New UT Baseball Volunteer Assistant Coach Troy Tulowitzki and Coach Pierce make an appearance at UT football practice today. I really like the support that each of the coaches and programs give to one another.
  4. You're doing a good thing, John. My hat is off to you.
  5. It’s for the visually impaired, Bear. They cannot see, so the baseball beeps in intervals to assist the players in hitting and fielding the ball. Congrats @Johnstark23 There’s great reason to be proud, regardless of where y’all finished. You’re doing a great thing.
  6. I’m hearing that a visit to Texas will not take place.
  7. What’s your handle Doc? I’ll vouch for you. But understand a couple of things; there are a plethora of dbags on most large sites and as a noob you’ll be questioned. Also, recruiting “scoops” “news” etc are all guesses. 18 yr old boys are more fickle than most girls. Good luck
  8. That kind of ranking usually makes it difficult for a kid to make it to campus, but we'll see how it goes.
  9. Pierce and Co are busy this week. Just got a commitment from a JUCO RHP prospect who's playing in the Cape right now. Soph RHP Dawson Merryman from Midland College.
  10. Horns also picked up a commitment tonight from a 2022 RHP from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA, Matthew Porchas.
  11. Word is it’s really good, but Donald is the man to ask as he’s seen him live.
  12. 2020 IF from Strake Jesuit HS Good speed and athletic kid. Had a very impressive Area Code tryout in Dallas recently
  13. Tech got boat raced today vs Michigan. It wasn’t even a game. Tough to come from the losers bracket and make it to the championship series.
  14. Texas recruit Brett Baty signed with the Mets this week. Also Blair Henley signed with the Astros and Matteo Bocchi with the Cubs. I have not seen that Hamilton or Reynolds have signed yet.
