Hall of Fame Class of 2014
A consensus first-team All-America selection in both 2008 and 2009, Stephen Strasburg is among San Diego State's most celebrated former student athletes. He was named National Pitcher of the Year in 2009 by College Baseball Foundation (CBF) and was selected Mountain West Pitcher of the Year in two consecutive seasons, while also holding SDSU records for most strikeouts in a game (23), in a season (195) and in a career (375). Strasburg also holds the school record for lowest career ERA of 1.59, and tied the program's record for most wins in a season with 13 as a senior in 2009. During his senior season, Strasburg was selected to the CBF National Team of the Week four times before capping it off with a no-hitter in his final collegiate home appearance. That season, he walked only 11 batters while striking out 195 in 109 innings pitched before leading the Aztecs to their first NCAA Regional appearance in 18 years. As a junior in 2008, Strasburg was named Louisville Slugger National Player of the Week three times and was the only collegiate player on the bronze medal-winning U.S. Olympic team. Following his career on The Mesa, Strasburg was the first pick of the 2009 MLB First-Year Player Draft of the Washington Nationals.
