STARKVILLE -- Freshman pitcher JT Ginn was named the National Freshman of the Year by the Perfect Game college baseball publication Tuesday night.
Ginn is 8-4 with a 3.36 ERA in 16 starts this season.
With 103 strikeouts on the year, he is the second MSU freshman to surpass the 100-strikeout mark in his inaugural campaign.
The Brandon native's eight wins are also tied for the most by any freshman in Mississippi State history.
This is the second national freshman award for Ginn. The Collegiate Baseball Newspaper honored him as the Co-National Freshman Pitcher of the Year June 5.
