Brad Lincoln 2006 TriStar Prospect Plus Game Used Jersey #P-BL

Let's continue looking at UH baseball players. With the season that my hometown Rangers and the Astros are having, looking at former Cougars is the only way to make it through the rest of the baseball season. Luckily football is coming up soon.

One of the most dominant seasons by any player in a UH uniform was turned in by Brad Lincoln in 2006. Lincoln was an All-American who won several player of the year awards by leading the nation in several categories including wins, ERA, strikeouts, shutouts, and more. He became the first UH player selected in the top 10 picks of the amateur draft when he was selected #4 by Pittsburgh.

I prefer basketball and football over baseball both as sports and for collecting, but there is one thing that baseball has over the other two sports... minor leagues. What other sport has team names like the Hickory Crawdads.
