The owners in NCAA voted to induct two players into the NCAA Hall of Fame. Both players played their entire careers for their respective franchises. (which is cool in and of itself) I reached out to both mongoose_22 and llcc to get their thoughts on the inductees.
8 Time All Star, 1 Time MVP, 1 Time Rookie of the Year, 2 Time Silver Slugger 1B
Drafted 3rd overall in the Season 4 draft, Adam Seneca is simply the best position player in Texas history. Before I came into NCAA, when I checked out the available team and saw Seneca and Shumpert together, that was the reason why I took the team. Seneca played in Texas for 18 seasons, and 16 of those seasons as a full time starting player. He was the model of durablitly, playing in at least 156 games for 13 consecutive seasons. The Red Raiders (or Mustangs, or Horned Frogs) made the playoffs in 11 of his first 12 seasons as a pro. With he and Shump leading the franchise into their golden age, they were never able to win the big prize, flaming out in the NLCS on three separate occasions. His awards, 8 All Stars and an MVP speak for themselves. We have officially renamed the Texas Tech Red Raiders offensive record book, 'The Book of Adam Seneca's Career Achievements.' The only player in the same league is former Texas player Ned French. Seneca holds the franchise career record in AB, PA, 2B, GP, H, HR, R, RBI, RC, and BB. He is 2nd in BA, OBP, RC/27 and 3rd in OPS, SLG, 3B and SB. By his retirement, his HoF resume was almost perfect, with all of the boxes checked: closet full of awards... check; .300+ batting average... check; .400+ OBP... check, .500+ SLG... check, 3000+ hits... check, 500+ doubles... check, 500+ HR... check.
5 Time All Star, 2 Time CYC, 1 Time MVP, 2 Time Silver Slugger 1B
