Troy Limbaugh was a four-year pitcher for the Cowboys baseball team and led the team in ERA his sophomore and senior years with 3.12 and 1.71 respectively. He is also the last Cowboy pitcher to throw a no-hitter at the Division I level. His 1.71 ERA in his senior season is still a Hardin-Simmons University record. Limbaugh not only competed on the field, but he literally helped build the current John J. Hunter Field.
