Prior to the start of the 2012 season Grambling State infielder Thomas Brown was named to preseason All SWAC second team.
It might be time to seriously consider him
As the conference tournament approaches, Brown has more than likely established himself as the best player in the league with his stellar performance this season.
How good has the sophomore utilityman been?
Through this weekend, Brown leads the SWAC in hits (178), batting average (.393), triples and on-base percentages. Brown is also at least in the top three of several other offensive categories, including slugging percentage and doubles.
All in all Brown has been the epitome of a hitting machine in the middle of the Tigers order.
During a recent 24-game hitting streak Brown had amassed 11 multi-hit games while driving in 17 runs.
One of Brown’s more impressive performances came back in March during a two-game series against nationally ranked Rice going 3-for-7 with an RBI.
Brown set the standard high for himself coming out of Houston County High School in Warner Robins, Georgia.
“I expect to be an integral part of my team in 2010 as a leader and performer,” said Brown prior to signing with Grambling, (and) a positive example for all to follow.”
