FORT WORTH — After the 2021 season, Tommy Sacco didn’t want to pick up a baseball for a while.

The Arizona native had just finished his first full season in a TCU uniform, and it was a forgettable one at the plate. He hit just .231, with more strikeouts (65) than hits (48). It was the worst season he could remember at any point in his baseball career, so the senior did something he hadn’t done before.

“I needed to step away,” Sacco said. “That was the one time in my baseball career where I was like, ‘I just need to relax, I can’t think about baseball,’ because I was struggling for so many months. I just needed to stop.”
