Since The University of Texas Baseball’s debut in 1894, the Longhorns have competed in thousands of games and competed 35 times in the annual College World Series. The first of six National Championships Texas took home was in 1949 and the Longhorns are fighting like hell to make it 7 in 2017.
Despite a recent series loss against the Baylor Bears, Texas rebounded in last night’s final matchup against the Texas State Bobcats to win the series 2 games to 1. Texas is currently ranked 6th in the Big 12 by 2 games, however they are only down 7 games to first ranked TCU overall. The high speed performance of Texas this year still puts them in standing to go to a conference tournament, make the regional series, and play in a super regional series for their 36th appearance in the College World Series. With more than 6 weeks of regular season baseball left until the conference tournament, Texas may still be able to pull it off.
It’s been 12 years since Texas won the title in 2005, but only 6 since Texas has placed in the series, with a 7th place tie in 2011, and only 3 years since their last qualification into the tournament in 2014. Starting Friday, June 16th the opening celebration kicks off the 2017 College World series for 12 solid days of the best college baseball known to man.
