Another honor rolls for a great former Bulldog pitcher in as publications begin to doll out their end of the year awards for 2012.
Chris Stratton, the Tupelo, Mississippi native and former Bulldog ace, has been named the pitcher of the year in college baseball for the 2012 season by the publication Perfect Game.
Chris, who put together an outstanding 11 win, 2 loss season to go along with a dazzling 2.38 earned run average (ERA), led the Bulldogs to an SEC Tournament Championship in his final season in Starkville, coming from a middle relief role early in the year to become the staff ace on one of the best pitching staffs in the SEC.
Stratton was selected 20th overall in this past summer's MLB draft by the San Francisco Giants, and is currently a part of their farm system.
Congrats to Chris on this honor.
