Texas Longhorns Baseball Schedule
When it comes top top notch college baseball you can really do no better than
the Texas Longhorns, and Disch-Falk Field is definitely the place to be in late winter and spring as the NCAA baseball season
gets underway. Recognized as one of the premiere college baseball programs in the country, Texas has a long record of success
(including National Championships) that is virtually unrivaled in the entire NCAA. With a talented roster of returning players
as well as some of the best young recruits in the nation you can be sure that Texas will be among the top teams in the nation
once again this season. Be sure to get your tickets to all of the best Texas Longhorns games as soon as possible.
Longhorns will take the field this season to do battle with some of their biggest rivals, and fans will pack into the stadium
to see the action unfold right before their eyes. One tough team that will visit this season is the Oklahoma Sooners, who
are always a big rival of Texas. The Sooners are sure to have some of the best players in the nation in 2014, so the Longhorns
will have to play their best on the diamond in order to get the job done.
The Longhorns will also host the Baylor Bears,
a squad that will be looking to come into Disch-Falk Field and earn a huge victory. The Longhorns have matched up with the
Bears many times over the years, and these two squads know one another well. The Bears have a lineup filled with sluggers
that can put the ball into the seats with power, so the Longhorns pitching staff will have to be dealing their best stuff
on the mound. There will be plenty of great home matchups for the Longhorns this season, and fans lucky enough to see the
action in person are in for a real treat.
Texas Longhorns Baseball History
The history of Longhorns baseball
dates back to 1894 although the team did not play its first game until 1895. Records during the team's existence as a club
sport are spotty, but the first Texas Longhorns intercollegiate victory came in 1897 at the expense of Add-Ran College, which
is known today as Texas Christian University and remains a big rival of the Longhorns. The Texas Longhorns possess the highest
winning percentage in all of college baseball and are second only to Fordham in terms of number of wins for the program. They
own the NCAA record for most appearances in the College World Series with 34 appearances and most College World Series games
played with 82. The program's six National Championships ranks second only to USC's 12. Now in his seventeenth year, manager
Augie Garrido has assembled quite an impressive roster which will surely make waves in the Big 12 and beyond. Expect Disch-Falk
Field to be overflowing with orange and white clad Longhorns supporters for each and every home game looking to cheer the
home team on to a return to national dominance.
Baseball is an incredibly popular sport,
and for good reason, and college baseball is always great to see in person. Sure, you might not get to hear the crack of the
bat (since the college players use aluminum bats) but the majesty and traditions of the game are alive and well in the college
ranks. Head out to see the Longhorns this season and you'll see why so many sports fans get out to catch big-time college
baseball games with regularity.

Texas Longhorns Baseball Fans
Texas Longhorns have some of the best fans in college baseball, and anyone that has been to a Longhorns home game knows that
is the case. The fans love to show up en masse for Big 12 Conference games, as those are the best rivalry games. While the
Big 12 had long been known for its college football, baseball has always been a big deal in the conference as well and in
recent years several schools have stepped up their game making it extremely difficult for a team to navigate the tough conference
schedule. Perennial powerhouses Nebraska and Oklahoma always are staunch competition and with the recent development of programs
like Oklahoma State and Kansas, the conference is only getting tougher. Playing such a tough regular season schedule annually
leaves the teams from the Big 12 who are selected for the Tournament ready to take on any college in the country and allows
for even some of the lower seeds to pull off big time upsets. When it comes to college sports there is arguably no conference
that is historically better or more dominant than the Big 12, and there are arguably no better fans that those of Texas hardball.
