  1. Happy Post-Season, Seamheads. Here we go, what you've all been waiting for; Texas Baseball back to a Regional on the Road to Omaha. Horn Sports will be on site, as I'll be there for the series. ********************************************* Here are some series notes from a few different websites: First up, the quick preview from Texas Sports 05.29.2017 Baseball to open NCAA regional play in Long Beach vs. UCLA The Longhorns enter the tournament as a No. 2 seed and will open at 6 p.m. Central on Friday against the Bruins. INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.— The NCAA announced the full field of 64 teams for the NCAA Division I Baseball Championships on Monday morning, with Texas Baseball earning a No. 2 seed in the Long Beach regional. This marks the 58th time the Longhorns have reached the NCAA Tournament. The Longhorns (37-22) are joined by their Friday opponent and No. 3 seed UCLA, No. 4 seed San Diego State and top-seeded host Long Beach State. Texas will open the Long Beach Regional on Friday at 6 p.m. CT (4 p.m. PT) against UCLA (30-25). this season, the Longhorns swept the Bruins in a three-game series at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. Long Beach State (37-17-1) and San Diego State (41-19) will face off in the nightcap, with both opening night games scheduled to air on ESPN2. Texas finished the season 37-22 after making a run to the Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship this past weekend. The Longhorns, who currently hold the No. 16 RPI in the nation, finished tops in the Big 12 in ERA (3.20) and boast the second-best fielding percentage in the country (.983). All-session tickets are currently available at LongBeachState.com/baseballregionals. or via the Long Beach State ticket office. Single-game tickets will be available Wednesday morning, starting at 9 a.m. online and 10 a.m. via the ticket office. ***************************************** Here are some notes from D1Baseball: The Long Beach Regional may be the toughest region in the tournament. Long Beach State, while compiling a 19-4 record at home this season, has also gone 0-2 vs UCLA and 0-2 vs San Diego St. UCLA was one of the last four teams in the tournament UCLA has one of the best starters in the nation in Canning, but their bullpen has been a major weakness for them this season. UCLA has a .226 avg vs non-conference opponents this year San Diego State went 2-0 v both UCLA and Long Beach State this season SDSU has 10 batters over .300 This is SDSU's 4th regional in 5 years, so they're experienced. D1 Baseball's Kendall Rogers named Texas his Omaha Sleeper: "I wrote this a couple of weeks ago after the TCU series, but in terms of sheer talent, few teams actually best the Longhorns in the starting rotation with Nolan Kingham, Morgan Cooper and Kyle Johnston leading the charge. The Longhorns are good enough offensively, too, to make a run, while the bullpen is the one thing for me that remains a concern." I personally don't think anything that Kendall stated is ground breaking; it's what we have been discussing all season long. The bullpen has to perform at an elite level for this team to make any noise in the tournament. That said, Kendall knows college baseball probably better than just about anyone I know, and his comments are high praise. Additionally, Aaron Fitt from D1 Baseball had this to say about the Long Beach regional being the toughest regional: "Texas is one of the most dangerous 2-seeds in the tournament, UCLA is a young but talented No. 3 with a premier ace in Griffin Canning, and San Diego State gets my vote for most dangerous 4-seed in the tournament — the Aztecs should have been a 3." And, "Texas is the non-No. 1 seed that has the best shot to get to Omaha thanks to its enviable collection of power arms and an offense that is clicking at the right time — the Longhorns are well suited to win on the pitcher-friendly West Coast." As a matter of fact, D1 Baseball had six writers/contributors name their toughest regional, and half of them picked the Long Beach regional as the toughest. ********************************************************* The Horns have their work cut out for them, but I have to say, it feels good to be back in the post season. ********************************************************* Texas plays on Friday at 4 PM vs UCLA; Kingham vs Canning: Battle on the Bump HookEm!!
