Back from our trip to Rice over the weekend. Despite losing the series, can't be disappointed in getting a win against the #2 Owls. They've only lost 1 of their 26 series since joining Conference USA.
Reckling Park continues to be one of, if not, my favorite ballparks. It's like a smaller version of AutoZone Park and has the best vantage point for calling a game. Special thanks to Rice SID John Sullivan for the cake yesterday, not sure if it was someones's birthday, but I didn't ask....just ate the cake.
Speaking of AutoZone Park, the baseball team opens up a four-game stand downtown beginning Wednesday against Ole Miss at 6:30. This weekend will be a bit odd. The St. Louis Cardinals are coming in for a couple of exhibition games against the RedBirds. So, we'll play Friday at 10am, Saturday at 6pm, and Sunday at Noon against UCF. Here's you chance to skip out for an early lunch Friday and watch the Tigers downtown!
