Star: K-State coach, pitcher receive Big 12 baseball honors


Kansas State took two of the top Big 12 postseason awards Tuesday, with Brad Hill being honored as coach of the year and junior right-hander A.J. Morris winning pitcher of the year.

Hill led the Wildcats to their best season ever with a 39-15-1 record and as high as a No. 10 ranking in the Baseball America poll.

“This award isn’t about me, it’s about the players,” said Hill, the first K-State league coach of the year since Mike Clark in 1990.

Morris, who also made the All-Big 12 first team, led the conference in wins (12), ERA (1.61) and was second in complete games (four).
