DALLAS — Omaha is turning purple! Yep, the Horned Frogs baseball team stepped up to the plate today, with their sights set on the College World Series title!
It’s the Frogs third appearance at College Baseball’s biggest stage since 2010… after the program had never made the World Series before that! So yeah, it’s a new trend for TCU, but it’s quickly becoming a habit, and fans couldn’t be more excited!
“We fought our way to get here and so it’s exciting to actually see what’s going to happen now that we’ve made it in!” said TCU alum, Saxon Guerriere.
So while they’re up in Omaha, trying to secure their first ever national championship, back in DFW, fans and alumni packed into the British Beer Company to watch what they hope is a run to the title!
“We planned for 70 [people]. We had 370 RSVP so TCU baseball is alive and well in DFW!” said one of the organizers of the watch party, Steven Stroud, “Plenty of room on this fan train, though!”
Yeah, these Frog fans might finally be getting used to having their squad in the national spotlight, after TCU’s historic football season last year and baseball’s recent success… but do they think the Frogs can finally bring home that elusive national title? These Frog Superfans say ‘yes!’
“Gonna be #1 in the nation! First national championship! Coach Schloss, love you baby! Do it all the way home! Go Frogs!”
Well the path is simple: win five games up in Omaha, and bring a trophy back to Ft. Worth, and TCU got off to a good start on Sunday. They blasted LSU 10-3, to advance to the second round of the College World Series. They’ll play the winner of CS Fullerton and Vanderbilt, Tuesday at 7:00 PM as they try to keep their crazy run going!
