COLLEGE STATION–The Texas A&M baseball team renews the second-longest rivalry in school history this weekend when the 8th-ranked Aggies (30-7, 12-3 Big 12) face Baylor (23-14, 8-7) in a split-site series. Friday's opener will take place at Olsen Field in College Station, with first pitch set for 6:30 p.m. The series then shifts north to Waco with games scheduled for Saturday (6:30 p.m.) and Sunday (2 p.m.).
A&M is in first place in the Big 12 at 12-3 and has swept three consecutive league opponents. The Bears are in a three-way tie for fourth place after winning five of their last six Big 12 contests.
The teams will be meeting for the first time since last May's Phillips 66 Big 12 Championship game in Oklahoma City, where the Aggies downed the Bears 14-6 for the school's first Big 12 tourney title.
Fans can listen to every pitch of the Friday and Sunday games locally on the flagship home of Texas A&M Athletics, News/Talk 1620 WTAW. Saturday's game from Waco will air on Sports Radio 1150 The Zone due to the Maroon and White spring football game. Dave South, Scott Clendenin and Chuck Glenewinkel call the action all season long. All broadcasts begin 15 minutes prior to first pitch.
