Huston Street joins baseball as student assistant

Longhorn great and 13-year Major League Baseball veteran set to join the baseball staff.

 

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.

    • 6-5 210 and 4.5 speed, can dominate at blocking. Sounds good to me.
    • RES SCHEDULE STANDINGS RANKINGS         LOG IN           Friday Five: Five teams not named Alabama or Clemson who have a realistic shot to win the national title If the Crimson Tide or the Tigers don't win the College Football Playoff, here's five teams who could by Tom Fornelli  @TomFornelli 3 hrs ago • 5 min   Over the summer, I wrote about the 16 teams that can realistically win a national title. The premise of the post that while every team technically starts the season with the same chance, the reality is much different. Now, only a few weeks into the season, that list of 16 has been culled a bit. It hasn't stopped anybody from asking me a familiar question, though. Whether on radio, podcasts or social media, I've been asked multiple times some variation of "which team is most likely to win the national title if it isn't Alabama or Clemson?" Well, for this week's Friday Five, I'm going to answer the question, though I doubt it will stop anybody from asking me. There's still a very long way to go in the season, but based on what we've all seen so far, these are the five teams I would give the best odds to right now. 5. Texas: Sometimes I wish I called this feature Friday Four instead of Friday Five because it's not always easy coming up with a fifth entry for the list. This was one of those times. I was going back-and-forth between Texas and all the honorable mentions listed below and ultimately decided on Texas for a couple of reasons. First of all, Texas is a talented team, and you need talent to win national titles. In 247Sports's team talent rankings, the Longhorns rank 7th in the country, ahead of the honorable mentions. More than that, however, Texas has an "easier" path to the College Football Playoff. There's only one obstacle in its way in the Big 12, and it's named Oklahoma. Now, it won't be easy to beat Oklahoma twice in the same season, but it's not impossible. Meanwhile, Auburn might be the third or fourth-best team in its own division. Michigan hasn't beaten Ohio State since 2011. Penn State has to get through Ohio State as well. Notre Dame can get to the playoff, but it has to be perfect to do so, and that's very hard to do. Then there's Oregon, which might be the best team in the Pac-12, but being the best team in the Pac-12 doesn't seem to mean much to those who decide which teams get in. So Texas gets this fifth spot in a bit of a tie-breaker. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/friday-five-five-teams-not-named-alabama-or-clemson-who-have-a-realistic-shot-to-win-the-national-title/
    • Getting a four star WR recruit is the cake. Taking him away from the aggies is the icing.
