GSU’s Brown earns top hitter award
GRAMBLING — Sophomore jinx, what sophomore jinx?
There was no such thing for Thomas Brown III at Grambling State University this spring.
The Tigers’ third baseman not only finished with the top regular season batting average in the Southwestern Athletic Conference, but was also announced Friday as the Hitter of the Year in the league.
Brown, a native of Warner Robbins, Ga., had a league-leading mark of .407 with 66 hits in 167 at bats.
The only player in the SWAC to hit over .400 had 15 doubles and seven triples and drove in 32 runs.
