COLLEGE STATION -- As the Texas A&M baseball team makes its push into May and towards the postseason, only five regular-season home games remain at Olsen Field.
The fifth-ranked Aggies (37-7), who sit atop the Big 12 standings at 18-3, will host Division I independent Dallas Baptist in a special Thursday-Saturday series this weekend at Olsen. First pitch on Thursday and Friday is set for 6:30 p.m. with Saturday’s finale to begin at 2 p.m.
“This is a big RPI week for us, with TCU on the road tonight and Dallas Baptist coming in this weekend,” A&M coach Rob Childress said. “These are two really strong teams who are both looking to make their case for postseason play. A good week will definitely help our cause come NCAA selection time, and we would love as many fans as we can to come out and continue to give us the best home-field advantage in the country.”
The Patriots (29-12) were ranked 27th in the latest NCAA RPI report, released last week, and have recorded numerous quality wins on the season—including a pair over Rice.
Kids 12 and under can receive free admission on Thursday evening with a paid adult through the “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” promotion. There is a limit of four kids per adult and all seats are general admission. Friday marks the annual “Military Appreciation Night” at Olsen Field.
Following the series with the Patriots, A&M will embark on six-game road trip before returning home on May 17 and 18 to play the final two games of the regular season against Texas.
The few reserved seats remaining for the series with the Longhorns are going fast. General admission seating will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis with gates opening 90 minutes prior to first pitch. The May 17 game will begin at 6:30 p.m. The game on Sunday, May 18 is scheduled for 1 p.m. but could be moved due to television.
Tickets for either series can be purchased by calling 888-99-AGGIE or by logging on to aggieathletics.com.
