Transcript The Coogs discuss their game plan. Photo by Robert Denton. T A Swinging Cougar SWC pitchers have been trying to get to Fred Hinojosa, UH's all- time leading RBI man, for three years now without much success. A junior majoring in radio and television, Hinojosa was an honorable mention Ail-American prior to the 1989 season and led the SWC in hitting with a .412 average in 1988. Hinojosa, who led his Bellaire high school baseball team to the Texas 5-A championship and No. 1 ranking in the nation his senior year, credits his success to a higher authority. Hinojosa hasn't always felt close to God. Although he was raised in a Catholic church, he "didn't have a very close relationship with Jesus. I think I do now," he said. Hinojosa also gives credit to his father for his success in life and on the field. "I never really had any idols except for my father," he said. "He instilled a lot of things in me — most importantly, the winning edge." In fact, if not for his father and UH baseball coach Bragg Stockton, Hinojosa would be wearing an Oklahoma State uniform right now. "I was a plane-trip away from committing to (OSU) when Bragg called me and convinced me to stay," he said. "My dad wanted me to stay also, so he could watch me play." It was a decision Hinojosa was glad he made. "I really like UH," he said. "I know this sounds weird coming from an athlete, but UH's high academic standards was a primary reason that I stayed." In his spare time, Hinojosa enjoys playing the guitar. "I've played in a few bands, everything from punk rock to contemporary music. But I don't have time to play in a band right now. I love music, but I love baseball a little bit more," he said. For UH baseball fans, the 1988-89 season may have been the last one to see one of UH's best baseball players in action. Hinojosa said there is a good possibility he will be selected by a major league team in the upcoming draft and if the price is right, he will leave UH. "I feel like I'm in the driver's seat because if they don't offer me the money I want, I can fall back on my education," Hinojosa said. "But to tell you the truth, I'm leaning toward staying (at UH) because I have a few records to set." He's not, however, worried about the future of UH's baseball team. "We can play with anybody in the nation, and we're certainly as good as anybody in the conference," he said. "We have a very, very good ballclub." ► Darrin Schlegel Catcher Fred Hinojosa (08) demonstrates a follow-through swing. Photo by Robert Denton.
