WVU Baseball: Pitcher Musgrave Named All American

West Virginia Mountaineers left handed ace Harrison Musgrave was named to the Louisville Slugger Second Team All-America list today.

Musgrave had an incredible 2013 season for the Mountaineers with a 9-1 record in 14 starts with a 2.17 earned run average (ERA). In his 14 starts, Musgrave registered 81 strike outs to only 65 hits.

Musgrave is the first WVU player to be named Louisville Slugger All-American since former Mountaineer star and current San Diego Padres rookie sensation Jedd Gyorko.

The sophomore pitcher from Bridgeport, WV had a monster 2013 campaign after sitting out the 2012 season recovering from Tommy John surgery. Anytime a pitcher has to undergo a serious surgery like Tommy John, there is always a little concern over how that pitcher will recover.

For Musgrave, it appears that the surgery did wonders for his game. When he last pitched as a freshman in 2011, Musgrave went 4-2 with a 4.61 ERA. In 2013, he doubled his win total and cut his ERA in half from his freshman campaign.

Musgrave is one of only three Big XII players to be named a Louisville Slugger All American. He is joined by Oklahoma Sooners pitcher Jonathan Gray on the Second Team and Kansas State Wildcats second baseman Ross Kivett on the Third Team.
