Tide's Hyatt Being Watched For Award
Hyatt has compiled a 6-1 record and 3.45 ERA in 10 starts for Alabama this season. He ranks second nationally in fewest walks per nine innings (0.62) and leads the SEC with 73 innings pitched. Hyatt also paces the Crimson Tide staff in starts (10), wins (6), quality starts (6), complete games (1) and strikeouts (62). He has an incredible 12-to-1 strikeout to walk ratio this season, with 62 strikeouts and only five walks.
"Hyatt is the heart-and-soul of our pitching staff," Alabama Coach Jim Wells said. "He is a strike thrower and a great competitor. He always seems to make the pitch when it counts to get us out of a jam. I don't know where we would be the last two years without him."
In seven SEC starts, Hyatt is 3-1 with a 4.00 ERA this season. He has recorded 47 strikeouts and issued only four walks in 54 innings.
"We are excited to have this new award as part of our presentation in July," said Raymond Richardson, College Baseball Awards Show chair and CBF board member. "To have the chance to specifically recognize the greatest pitching talent in college baseball is an opportunity we could not pass up. "
The Pitcher of the Year will be honored during the College Baseball Awards Show on July 2, 2009 in Lubbock, Texas.
