From Weatherford College

In its 13 years of existence, the Weatherford College baseball program has produced a number of NCAA standouts, even three major leaguers, but former Coyote pitcher Jake Arrieta took the program to a new plateau Wednesday, winning the National League Cy Young Award.

The Chicago Cub had an incredible 2015 season, leading the major leagues with 22 wins. He turned in a 1.77 ERA, struck out 236 and pitched a no-hitter. But it was Arrieta’s second half that was truly historic. After the All-Star Game, he registered an ERA of 0.75, the lowest ever for a full-time starter in the second half.
