Transcript Thrice Is Nice Hinojosa aims at All-SWC again red Hinojosa is UH's two time All-SWC catcher. The 1990 season yields the opportunity for Hinojosa to be selected for the third year in a row! Raynor Noble, the current Cougar assistant baseball coach, is the only other Cougar player to achieve three-in-a- row All-SWC status. Noble captured the honors in 1981, 1982, and 1983. Coach Noble said, "I have confidence in Fred. He's such a strong and consistent competitor, I'm sure he'll be selected again this year." Hinojosa had such a great season last year, there was speculation that he would definitely forfeit his senior year and enter the major leagues this year. "All along I said that I was leaning towards staying here at UH," said Hinojosa. "I wasn't going to go just for the sake of going. Plus, I felt we had an excellant team coming into this season and I wanted another shot at the record book." During the 1988-89 season, Hinojosa had a .351 batting average with 46 RBI's. He also owns UH career records of games played(175), hits(179), RBI(120), doubles(39), extra base hits(61), and total bases(279). As a Freshman, Hinojosa started 60 of 62 games. In all, Hinojosa holds eight 99 All along I said I was leaning towards staying here at UH... 99 records and is or has been in contention for nine others. Hinojosa began wreaking terror in the Southwest Conference as a Freshman. During the NCAA Regionals he compiled an awesome .462 batting average and earned an All-Tournament selection. He earned his first All-Southwest Conference honor as a sophomore when he led the entire SWC with a .412 batting average. Hinojosa, a product of Bellaire High School, led his team to the Texas 5A championships and a number one ranking in the nation, during his senior year. Also, he batted a .397 with seven home runs and 39 RBI's, to earn All-District, All-Greater Houston, and All-State honors that year. By the time Fred Hinojosa leaves the hallowed halls of the Cougar athletic program the record books will be rewritten in his handwriting. Few people will argue that Hinojosa was one of the best baseball players to ever put on a Cougar Red uniform, and one of the best ever in the Southwest Conference. His picture should be placed up on the wall next to Akeem Olajuwon and Andre Ware.-R. Ricardo Sutton H I inojosa awaits his turn at bat.
