West Virginia University junior left-handed pitcher Harrison Musgrave has been named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Preseason All-America Second Team, the organization announced Wednesday.
A native of Nutter Fort, Musgrave went 9-1 with a 2.17 ERA and three complete games in 2013. In 95.1 innings of work, Musgrave struck out 81 batters and allowed just 65 hits. He was named the Big 12 Pitcher of the Year and honored as a Louisville Slugger Second Team All-American.
Musgrave was selected by the Philadelphia Phillies in the 33rd round of the 2013 Major League Baseball Draft, but quickly announced he would be returning to WVU.
The Mountaineers finished 33-26 last season and open the 2014 season with a tournament in Charleston, S.C. from Feb. 14-16, facing College World Seriesparticipant Louisville in the season opener.
