Thursday was practice day for the four baseball teams assembled for the College Station Regional.
Texas A&M took its cuts in the morning session.
Outfielder Kyle Colligan says the Aggies will be disappointed with anything less than a national championship because that is the common goal toward which the team is striving.
Illinois-Chicago took its turn in the batting cage in the afternoon.
The Flames know the weather and the partisan Aggie fans will combine to give them a warm welcome at Olsen Field Friday.
