The Texas Tech baseball team's fall season is just around the corner, and throughout the remainder of the semester Texas Tech Athletics Communications will take an inside look into the Tech program with Red Raider Profiles on each player.
Brennan Moore (OF - 5-11, 175 - R/R - Jr./TR - Decatur, Texas/Decatur/Grayson College)
Brennan Moore enters the Texas Tech program as a junior-college transfer from Grayson College. The bright lights that shine on Dan Law Field and many other Big 12 stadiums are an adjustment for most newcomers. Moore may be different as he has spent a lot of time in his collegiate career playing on a big stage.
Moore helped guide Grayson to the 2011 JUCO World Series while batting .394 in 57 games played with 65 runs, five home runs, 24 doubles, 22 stolen bases and 53 RBI. Moore's numbers placed him among the top 20 players in the nation in runs scored and doubles.
In fact, Moore was Grayson's top performer at the World Series where he went 4-for-10 with three RBI in two games. Grayson's first game at the World Series saw a crowd of 5,632 fans pack Supluzio Field in Grand Junction, Colo.
Moore played this past summer with the Mankato MoonDogs in the prestigious Northwoods League in Mankato, Minn. Moore was one of the most productive hitters in the league batting .309 (46-for-149) with 39 runs, 12 doubles, five home runs, seven stolen bases and 24 RBI.
"We felt like we needed to add another outfielder, but we wanted it to be the right guy," head coach Dan Spencer said. "He is a good runner, he can really hit and he can defend. His intangibles are huge and his makeup is off the charts."
In addition, Moore's prep career at Decatur High School (Decatur, Texas) ended with a standout senior season where he batted .466 with 18 doubles, four triples, five home runs, 46 runs, 21 stolen bases, .864 slugging percentage and .556 on-base percentage.
