After shining on college baseball’s biggest stage, former UT closer Huston Street will be enshrined in the Omaha College Baseball Hall of Fame.

Street will be honored this weekend alongside Eddie Bane, the star pitcher from Arizona State. The Omaha College Baseball Hall of Fame’s inaugural class in 2013 featured Longhorn legends Augie Garrido and Brooks Kieschnick. Texas’ ties to subsequent classes were Cliff Gustafson, Burt Hooton and Keith Moreland.

According to a UT press release, the Omaha College Baseball Hall of Fame “honors the incredible achievements of the players and coaches on college baseball’s greatest stage, the College World Series. Inductees are voted on by a panel of college baseball experts that includes former players, coaches and national college baseball media members.”
