The 2024 season wouldn’t have been as historic for the WVU baseball program without the individual performances of some of the team’s top players. And leading the way along with JJ Werherholt and Grant Hussey was ace pitcher Derek Clark.

Clark is now being recognized as Rawlings’ Gold Glove pitcher for his work defensively. Clark was announced as the winner on Wednesday.

On the mound, Clark posted an 8-3 record with four complete games after transferring to West Virginia for his final college season. He also a 3.23 ERA and struck out 91 batters during the regular season.

Clark then won a game for the Mountaineers in the NCAA Regional over Dallas Baptist and threw 144 pitches despite a loss in his NCAA Super Regional start against North Carolina.

Clark also represented WVU Baseball by being named to the All-Big 12 first team and a third team All-American via the National College Baseball Writers Association.
