Texas Tech Baseball coach, Tim Tadlock is in the midst of a historic turnaround, bringing in loads of young talent that has this team competing to host a regional in just his 2nd season as head coach.

One reason for that is his ability to fit that young talent in with some of the cornerstones of this team, like Tim Proudfoot and Bryant Burleson. These two are as close as it gets to automatic, when it comes to turning double plays on the diamond. For a second year in a row Tech leads the Big 12 and is in the top five in the country in double plays, Proudfoot and Burleson are a big reason why, and their success on the field has a lot to do with their relationship off of it.
