Nicholson A Hit With The Horns

Updated: Saturday, August 3 2013, 09:47 PM CDT
After the worst season in recent history, the Texas baseball team decided to make some staff changes. They’re hoping that former Longhorn second baseman and volunteer assistant Tommy Nicholson will be a hit with the Horns.

Nicholson will take on the role of hitting coach and recruiting coordinator as an assistant at Texas after spending the last two seasons as an assistant at Sacramento State. In 2012, the Hornets batted .298 as a team with 30 home runs.

Prior to his stint at Sacramento State, Nicholson spent two seasons (2009-10) as a volunteer assistant coach at Texas where he worked with the infielders while serving as the first base coach for the Longhorns. The Longhorns posted a 50-16-1 mark and finished as runner-up at the College World Series in 2009, before registering a 50-13 record and advancing to NCAA Super Regional play in 2010. The Longhorns batted .286 in 2010 with 87 stolen bases and recorded a .980 fielding percentage, while the 2009 squad batted .288 as a team with 74 stolen bases and boasted a .976 fielding clip.

For his collegiate playing career, he missed only three starts as a second baseman during his three seasons (1998-2000) at Texas. Nicholson compiled a .327 career average at UT with 147 runs scored, 223 hits, 37 doubles, four triples, nine home runs, 114 RBI and 20 stolen bases. He was named the team's most valuable player in 1999 and 2000. Nicholson A Hit With The Horns
