TCU baseball preview: Speed abounds in veteran outfield

Elijah Nunez headlines one of the fastest outfields in TCU history (TCU Baseball).

Our TCU baseball preview rolls on, and today we’re answering a question: will TCU have the fastest outfield in the country?

It’s not out of the realm of possibility. With the return of Elijah Nunez and the addition of West Virginia transfer Austin Davis, TCU is bringing back 60 stolen bases from a season ago.

Defensively, both Nunez and Davis have a highlight reel a mile long as well. Both Nunez and Davis were named to the preseason All-Big 12 team, and opposing coaches have to be bemoaning the task of slowing them down.

From a swagger perspective, no one can compete with TCU’s new dynamic duo. Nunez’s gold chain beneath his uniform was a staple last season, and Davis has been spotted with his patented “Prime Time” chain at multiple other Horned Frog sporting events this year. Both walk with their heads held high, both are confident, vocal leaders in the clubhouse, and both have games that back it all up.

That could be enough to propel the Frogs to a place they haven’t been in far too long: Omaha.

The bigger question, maybe, is who will start in left field?

There are two names to watch for, and both will likely see time at the position.
