Texas A&M club baseball will host Texas Tech University in both Bryan and Brenham from Feb. 24-25 after a season opener loss on the road against Arlington Baptist.

The series games are scheduled to start Friday, Feb. 24, at 6:30 p.m. at Bombers Field in Bryan and again Saturday at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. in Brenham. Admission to the games is free, first-year head coach James Dickerson said.

The Aggies will enter the series after a 6-5 loss that went into extra innings against Arlington Baptist on Feb 9. The clubs had conference records of 12-0 and 17-1 the last two years, with second and fourth-place Regional Tournament finishes, coming up just short of a World Series appearance.

The Aggies had unfortunate luck last game but are focusing on a promising future as a team, Dickerson said.

“If we can just take series by series, game by game, pitch by pitch, we can get to where we need to be,” Dickerson said. “Put the failures in the back of your mind, and you are going to be successful no matter what.”

The players are more motivated when the student body shows up to support the team, senior 1B Spencer Thompson said.

“It would definitely help if the student body got more involved,” Thompson said. “When we play the University of Texas, there is always a good turnout, but we would love that support for more games.”

Thompson said even though the team doesn’t get as much practice as they would like, they are still making progress, which will lead them to regionals and the much-anticipated World Series scheduled for May 24-30.

“Slow motion is better than no motion,” Thompson said.

Dickerson said much of his confidence for this season is due to the team’s overall chemistry and talented pitching staff.

“Our pitching staff goes deep, and we will continue to hit the ball like we do every year,” Dickerson said. “No worries at all that we will do well.”

The Aggies are currently 0-1 for the 2023-24 season.
