June 5, 2008
Aaron Crow became the highest draft pick in Mizzou history on Thursday, as the Washington Nationals selected him with the ninth overall pick in the 2008 Major League Baseball Draft. Crow finished the 2008 season with a 13-0 record, winning 13 of his 15 starts.
Crow and Max Scherzer, who was taken with the 11th overall pick by Arizona in 2006, are the only Tigers ever to be selected in the first round of the MLB Draft.
Crow was named the 2008 Big 12 Conference Pitcher of the Year and is a finalist for the Golden Spikes Award, the Clemens Award and the Dick Howser Trophy. Last week, he was named to the Louisville Slugger All-America First Team by Collegiate Baseball.
The 13 wins on the year for Crow led the NCAA and his 127 strikeouts were sixth most in the nation. His strikeout total tied for the second most in Mizzou baseball history and his 277 career strikeouts are the third most ever by a Tiger pitcher.
Crow posted a string of 43 scoreless innings pitched at one point during the season, which is unofficially tied for the fourth-longest streak in NCAA Division I history. Crow had four shutouts in 2008, including one at last week's NCAA Regional in Coral Gables, Fla. He also combined for one shutout this season.
He is a two-time All-Big 12 Conference First Team selection and earned two Big 12 Pitcher of the Week honors this year and one NCBWA National Pitcher of the Week award.
Crow is the 41st player drafted since 1996, Tim Jamieson's first year as Mizzou's head coach and is the 14th Missouri pitcher selected in the MLB Draft since 2003.
