The beginning of a new era for Texas BaseballMay 31st, 2009 - 10:13 pm ICT by GD
More than five decades ago, Bibb Falk put his Texas Baseball team on a train and headed for Wichita Kansas, and went on to win the what would be the maiden of all the six NCAA titles that the Longhorns would win the future.
Come 2009, the NCAA Baseball Committee anointed the Texas Baseball team as America’s number 1. seeded team among the lot of 64 teams with the 8 of the Big 12 teams taking up an eight of the entire field. These all culminates to one fact and that is- “college baseball has indeed come a long way”.
The Texas State, which off late has been engrossed in building a quality program under former Longhorn player and assistant coach Ty Harrington, got into the tournament after an at -large selection following the team’s loss at the hands of Sam Houston State in the Southern Conference Championships.
The Texas baseball team and fans, apart from being anointed with nation’s number one seed, has one more thing to cheer about and that is championship baseball will be back at the UFCU Disch-Falk Field for the first time in the last 30 years. So this time around the Longhorns for the first time will be playing host in the brilliant newly renovated ball park.
The championship baseball tournament coming back to Austin, Texas will like welcoming back of an old long lost friend, for whom every body had been waiting. It‚ will be like the past meeting the present in order create a future that will be bigger and better for the game and certainly a whole new era for Texas Baseball.
