Texas Longhorns Baseball Conference
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.
Nothing quite compares to the
time honored tradition of taking in a baseball game. After all, there is a reason it is referred to as America's Pastime.
From the smell of the freshly cut grass to the National Anthem bellowing through the stands and the crack of the bat as a
hitter connects with a pitch, to the sight of a ball flying over the outfield wall and the taste of a fresh hot dogs or Cracker
Jacks, attending a baseball game is a a sensory experience like no other and the memories it produces will last a lifetime.
The ultimate family day or night out, a baseball game is the perfect bonding experience whether seeing the game with family,
friends, or co-workers. As the innings and pitches pile up everyone in attendance can feel the intensity pick up as every
pitch, run, and base runner, begin to matter more and more. By the time the seventh inning stretch rolls around a break from
the action is welcome just to settle the nerves and enjoy a traditional song before getting right back to all the excitement
for the final two and a half innings. As you file out of the stadium after the last out you likely will already be wanting
to start making plans for your next visit to the ballpark.
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.
