Lobos’ Johnson earns accolades

By Matt Hagerman Sports Correspondent | Posted: Thursday, June 6, 2019 9:20 am

Sul Ross State University sophomore first baseman Tim Johnson established himself as the newest Alpine superstar in 2019. Now both the American Baseball Coaches Association sponsored by Rawlings and D3Baseball.com have named him a First Team All-American.

Johnson is the first Lobo to receive this level of national acclaim since Javier Arrieta in 2010. In his first year with the program, Tim hit .443 and reached base in over half his plate appearances. His ninth and final home run of the season was a thrilling and rare inside-the-park grand slam against UT Tyler on April 27 at Kokernot Field.
