Nov. 4, 2010
LUBBOCK, Texas - Although the Texas Tech baseball team has wrapped up its fall season, Texas Tech Athletics Communications will continue taking an inside look into the Tech program with Red Raider Profiles on each player.
Reid Redman (INF - 6-0, 180 - R/R -Jr./TR - Midland, Texas/Midland/Midland JC)
Reid Redman spent two seasons playing at his hometown junior college, Midland JC, before signing with Baylor after his two seasons of junior college. Redman later transferred to Texas Tech, where he sat out all of last season.
Redman is now ready to make an impact with the Red Raiders, something he has already accomplished in a short period of time. He led all Tech hitters in the annual Red & Black Series with 10 base hits and his .556 batting average trailed only Jamodrick McGruder (.600, 9-for-15).
Redman finished the five-game series with five runs and four RBI. His final game in the Red & Black Series saw him go 3-for-4 with a double, home run and three RBI.
He had a standout sophomore season at Midland JC in 2009 batting .360 while leading the team with 49 runs scored and added 15 doubles, seven home runs and 38 RBI. He tallied a 15-game hit streak with 17 multi-hit games.
"Reid is going to help us a bunch," head coach Dan Spencer. "He has had a really good fall - outside of about 10 days of being hurt. He has swung the bat well. We know he can defend at short, third and second base. He is going to give us depth. He is putting himself in a position for us to have to find him the at-bats and game time. Those are good things for him. We are extremely glad he is here."
Redman has bloodlines in the Texas Tech baseball program as his father, Dale, was a four-year letterman (1981-84) in the Red Raider program and finished his career batting .324 in 1984.
