The trophy case continues to fill up for Ivan Melendez. The redshirt junior was named the winner of the Dick Howser Trophy Friday morning, recognizing him as college baseball's player of the year in 2022.
Melendez is the 4th Texas player to ever win the Dick Howser trophy, joining Brooks Kieschnick, Scott Bryant and Taylor Jungmann. His 32 home runs and 94 RBI's lead all of college baseball. Melendez accepted the award in Omaha as the Longhorns prepare to open the College World Series this evening at 6 PM against Notre Dame.
