The Bobby Bragan Collegiate Slugger Award (BBCSA) has announced the players on its “Watch List” for the 2018 college baseball season.  The award, created by the Bobby Bragan Youth Foundation, was open to nominations from all Division I baseball programs in Texas.  There are 25 players from 18 programs on the “Watch List” this season.  The BBCSA is based on performance at the plate, academics and personal integrity.

Texas Tech’s Hunter Hargrove was the winner of the inaugural BBCSA last season.  Hargrove was the Co-Player of the Year in the Big 12 Conference in 2017.  He was selected in the 25th round of the 2017 Major League Baseball Draft by the Oakland Athletics organization.
