Transcript Building on the Future Coach Stockton looks to new recruit for future success Continued from previous page... Scouts have predicted that McDonald would go as high as the fifth round. McDonald finished the season with 39 walks, a .462 on base percentage and 20 stolen bases. "Jason McDonald has a good chance," the scout said. "You can't overlook speed." McDonald was the top Cougar pick going in the fourth round to the Oakland A's. McDonald was also a football prospect. Blair and Freeman both showed versitility in the field as well as at the plate. Blair finished the year as a utility outfielder in both right and left field with no errors. "Blair is a lot more consistent than he used to be," the scout said. His .359 average placed him ninth in the Southwest Conference and third on the team. He hit .375 in conference games. Blair's four home runs were the first four hits of his collegate career. "I've played three years of college baseball," Blair said, "I think I'm ready." Brian Blair was drafted in the 17th round by the Texas Rangers. Blair finished the season with a .359 batting average, 40 runs batted in and 17 stolen bases. Freeman was the player who scouts say was on the bubble. With the ad dition of two new teams, his chances were increased to make a team. Freeman's .384 batting average and six home runs were both career highs this year. (Freeman was named as a utilitary player on the All-SWC Team.) Unfortunately, Ricky Freeman and senior Jeff Wright were both on the Cougar MIA's list, not being drafted. Stockton had already started building the 1994 ver- sion of Cougar baseball around such building blocks as Freeman, as well as freshmen Jeremy Tyson and J.J. Matzke. Matzke replaced Freeman at third base when Freeman was hit by a pitch in Austin. All he did after that was finish second in the SWC with a hefty .397 average to lead all freshmen in the leauge. Tyson and junior Brian Hamilton combined for 12 wins, three saves and seven complete games. The two right handers could be a force for Stockton next year whether it be in the starting rotation or the bullpen. "We're really honed in on pitching," Stockton said. "Pitching and defense is where we have to strenghten." Stockton also praised his catcher, Mike Hatch, and utility man David Galvin. Hatch raised his average 100 points to a respectable .266. Hatch also led all catchers by throwing out 13 potential base stealers. Galvin finished with two homers and 18 RBI's in 38 games. He missed part of the season with a stress fracture in his leg. "The way it looks now," Stockton said, "it will probably be Hatch behind the plate, Galvin at first, McDonald at second and Matzke at third." Stockton said he was still hoping McDonald, as well as the rest of his juniors, would at least consider coming back. "We always encourage them to stay to get their degree," Stockton said. "If they leave after their junior year, then the odds go down of them finishing." To try to replenish a depleated pitching staff, Stockton had recruited and signed 15 new players, including seven pitchers for next year.-Patti Warner Cougar Baseball JN| ewcomer J.J.
