Mississippi State has had some outstanding ballplayers pass through its baseball program but none have ever been named the National Freshman of the Year.
At least until now.
Perfect Game tabbed pitcher JT Ginn with that honor on Tuesday.
Ginn had already selected as the SEC Freshman of the Year and the Collegiate Baseball Co-National Freshman Pitcher of the Year as well as a Freshman All-American.
The right-hander from Brandon is currently 8-4 with a 3.36 earned run average in 16 starts. He struck out 103 batters and only walked 18 in 80 1/3 innings of work and only surrendered one home run, which came in his debut on opening weekend.
Ginn needs one win to pass Paul Maholm for the most by an MSU freshman and is six strikeouts shy of Eric DuBose’s freshman school record for strikeouts.
