David Agado saved his best for the conference championship. His best was a no-hitter.

Agado helped pitch his Tarleton State Texans to the 1989 Texas Intercollegiate Athletic Association title with his second-career no-hit performance, according to The Stephenville J-TAC.

Agado went on from Tarleton to play in the pros. His pro career, though, was brief. He played just two seasons.

Agado's pro career began that year in 1989, taken by the Phillies in the 27th round of the draft out of Tarleton.

Agado went to Tarleton after playing high school ball for Moody High in his native Corpus Christi.

With Moody in 1986, Agado was 7-0 by early April. In his first four wins, he threw three complete games and struck out 30.

At Tarleton, Agado once struck out 11 in a game, a team record. He went 6-2 in 1989, with a 2.98 ERA. He also served in the outfield, hitting .402 that year. His performances earned him a spot in the school's Hall of Fame in 2005.

Agado started his pro career at short-season Batavia. He got into two games in relief and didn't give up a run.

He moved to rookie Martinsville for 1990. In 14 starts there, he went 2-5, with a 3.98 ERA. It was his final season as a pro.
