INTRODUCTION THE PROGRAM LETTER FROM COACH GOLLOWAY 2010 MEDIA GUIDE CREDITS Welcome to OU baseball, one of the most storied collegiate programs in the nation. The Sooners have built a strong tradition by winning National Championships in 1951 and 1994. After appearing in a NCAA Regional final in four of the last five years, including a national seed in 2009 and the 2006 Super Regional, we believe OU baseball is on the brink of making the program’s 10th College World Series appearance. The 2010 Oklahoma baseball media guide is a production of the University of Oklahoma Athletics Communications office. The guide was written, designed and edited by Assistant Director of Athletics Communications Craig Moran. Additional contributions provided by student interns Lacy Barnes, Ben Coldagelli, Natalie Himes, Ally La Rocque and Jennifer Van Tuyl. Additional editing provided by Director of Publications Debbie Copp. As a Sooner coach, I have been fortunate enough to be a part of three College World Series and the last four regional titles at Oklahoma. It’s fair to say that Sooner baseball is second to none when it comes to its student-athletes enjoying success on and off the field. COVER The front, back and inside covers were designed by Director of Graphic Design Scott Matthews with assistance from Craig Moran. PHOTOGRAPHY The University of Oklahoma Athletics Department is committed to excellence on the field and in the classroom and that is evident by the amount of resources available to our student-athletes. The expectations remain high and the goals are simple -- to present the studentathletes with the most competitive setting that will prepare them for success at OU and, in turn, in life. As a Sooner head coach, I recognize the outstanding leadership that has come before this coaching staff and the successful student-athletes who have represented this program. We acknowledge the awesome responsibility as caretakers of this program and work very hard to build upon its rich tradition. We will continue to extend our right hand of fellowship to our alumni, fans and the dedicated people who represent this great university as we all work together to bring championships home to L.
