CollegeBaseball_Showdown_21.jpg

Head Coach David Pierce and the Texas Longhorns will open up the 2021 baseball season by participating in a 3-day event at Arlington's Globe Life Field on February 19-21.  Along with Texas, there will be five other Division-I teams participating in the Showdown.  Texas Tech and TCU will round out the Big 12 schools, while Ole Miss, Mississippi State and Arkansas will represent the Southeastern Conference.  Each of the six participating teams are ranked in the Top-10 of D-1Baseball's Preseason Poll (Texas Tech - 3, Ole Miss - 6, Mississippi State - 7; Arkansas - 8; Texas - 9; TCU - 10).

Globe Life Field opened last March and saw no fans in the stands for the Texas Rangers' regular season.  It did host MLB postseason games, including the World Series, and saw a limited number of fans in attendance.

Single game tickets go on sale today, January 21st at 1:00 PM and can be purchased at the following link:  https://www.mlb.com/rangers/tickets/events/college-baseball-showdown

Can't wait to see Ty Madden deal. Gosh I miss baseball.

He's family (kinda) lol!  Ty is my 2 older daughter's cousin (from my 1st marriage).  My oldest is in Austin today and will be in Houston tomorrow.  Not sure if she'll see Ty tho. Kid is a beast!  Hopefully we'll get to see him during this Showdown.

Is this tourney on TV anywhere?

Its suppose to be shown on FloSports.  On my ROKU right now, it is showing a delayed broadcast the Sanderson Ford College Classic from earlier today where KSU is leading Or-gone st 3-0 in the 5th.  KSU ends up winning the game 3-2

The FloSports link to the Texas game tomorrow at 11am has a "pro" tab on the link, which means you would have to buy the streaming service to watch the game live. I think it's like $15 for a weekend, or $30 for a month, or $150 for a year, or something like that. That's not worth it for me so I might find a free stream or actually get something done tomorrow morning

Definitely too much for me. I have a Roku so if that ends up working or you find something for free then let me know! Thanks!

There won’t be much access, if any, to free streams, at least not ones that won’t hose up your computer. 

It’s $30 for one month. This gets you every game that FloBaseball has during this time, including the three UT games in this event.  
 

If you don’t feel it’s worth it, we will have a thread up here with banter, I’ll be on Twitter and you can listen to the radio broadcast for free on TexasSports.
