WATCH: Texas Tech outfielder makes ridiculous diving catch to propel team to Omaha

  • David Whitlock

Anytime the announcer just declares that you made “the catch of [your] life” you probably just did something special.  Texas Tech OF Devon Conley made a game-saving catch on line drive by College of Charleston SS Champ Rowland  to propel his Red Raiders team to Omaha for their first College World Series appearance in school history.  Check out the new big man on campus in Lubbock, as he snags an impossible line drive (via Youtube.com/techathletics).

Texas Tech’s sweep wins look like some sort of soccer score.  1-0, 1-0.  Here, it was 1-0 and 2 outs and a runner on 2nd base.  Don’t come up with this, and it’s tied with fate still to be decided.  As it was, inning over and the Cougars never sniffed a scoring chance again.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
