FT. WORTH, TX — TCU’s wild run through the College World Series came to an end on Friday night. Yeah, the Horned Frogs just couldn’t keep up with Vanderbilt for the second time in the tourney, as they fell just short of their ultimate prize.

On Saturday the team returned home to Ft. Worth to a throng of appreciative Frog fans.

“They fought through so much, I mean many people didn’t even give them a chance when they were down so many times” said TCU Super Fan ‘Frog Daddy’, “Just gotta show the love to the players man.”

It was definitely a run to remember. Three separate times the Frogs faced elimination and survived in thrilling fashion.

“That’s one of the Hallmarks for a program is just being selfless,” said Preston Morrison a senior pitcher for the team “Playing with energy and excellence. No matter what the situation is, up ten, down ten, tie game.”

Still a lot for TCU to hold their heads high about. This year netted 51 wins, the school’s first Big 12 title, and a second straight appearance in Omaha.

“My goal when I came to TCU was to establish a baseball program that was relevant in the community.” said head coach Jim Schlossnagle, “And that’s being shown right now.”

As for that last step of a national title… well there’s always next year.
