TCU’s Jim Schlossnagle describes how hard it is to reach even one College World Series
The Frogs announced it on Monday, and it features 21 games against 10 teams that participated in the 2018 NCAA postseason.
“We are super excited about our 2019 schedule,” coach Jim Schlossnagle said in a statement. “The awesome experiences our players, staff and fans will get to be a part of -- playing in two major league ballparks and one of the best spring training facilities in all of professional baseball as well.
“Add those games to what will certainly be an incredible season of baseball in the Big 12 and our team will be challenged at the highest level.”
TCU opens its season on Feb. 15 in the MLB Collegiate Baseball Tournament at Salt River Fields in Scottsdale, Arizona, the spring training home of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies. The Frogs will play Cal State Fullerton (Feb. 15), Virginia (Feb. 16) and Vanderbilt (Feb. 17).
TCU’s first home game at Lupton Stadium will be Feb. 19 (a Tuesday) against Abilene Christian.
Other non-conference games of note are a March 2 game against Texas A&M at Minute Maid Park in Houston, the home of the Astros, and a March 19 contest against UT-Arlington at Globe Life Park in Arlington, the Rangers home.
Big 12 play begins for TCU with a three-game home series against Texas on March 22-24. The Big 12 tournament will be held at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark May 21-26 in Oklahoma City.
