All-time Series: Texas leads, 223-54-2


The Longhorns won 3 of 4 matchups last season, including a 3-2 victory in 11 innings in the Houston Regional.





Texas' 2014 recruiting class was ranked seventh-best in the nation by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper. The Longhorns signed 10 players for the class of 2014, eight of which are from the state of Texas. Despite three of those being selected in the MLB Draft this summer (RHP Tyler Schimpf, C Michael Cantu, INF Travis Jones), all 10 players reported to campus. Of the 21 players signed in the last two years, 20 have joined the Longhorns on the 40 Acres.




On the new baseballs…


From the NCAA: "Flat-seamed baseballs launched out of a pitching machine at averages of 95 mph, a 25-degree angle and a 1,400 rpm spin rate traveled around 387 feet compared to raised-seamed baseballs that went 367 feet. Due to variables, not every trajectory hit with a flat-seamed ball will travel exactly 20 feet farther than a raised-seamed ball, but a 20-foot average difference is an approximate representation of what can be expected."

Appropriate time to appreciate...


There have been NCAA postseason baseball for 68 years. UT has been in 56 of the tournaments.


68 College World Series and UT has been in 35 with 6 wins and 6 runners-up.


Four coaches since 1911 (with apologies to BCherry who took over 3 years during WWII) and all legends.


That boys and girls is a baseball program.

A few notes before we get going. 


  • I am not a professional broadcaster.  I'm a fan.  I really attempt to be as neutral as possible in my PBP.
  • I do this because I enjoy it.
  • If there is something you'd like me to change, please feel free to post about it, and I'll try to accommodate your request.
  • I typically will call an entire inning in one post.  The caveat to this is that if we have a pitching change or an inning is going on too long, I may break it up.
  • Also, I will sometimes post as soon as there is a run scored to update you on what's going on.
  • I use a lot of baseball score book terminology, i.e. 6-3 (SS-1B ground out.) 
  • Please enjoy this.  Again, I do this because I enjoy it.

Hook Em!
