FRISCO – The Sam Houston State Bearkat baseball team had a piece of its upcoming 2019 schedule unveiled on Monday when officials from the Frisco Classic released the schedule for the event, set for March 1-3, 2019 at Dr Pepper Ballpark.
The Frisco Classic, presented by Baylor Scott & White Sports Performance Center at the STAR, is one of the premier early-season events in collegiate baseball and will include the Bearkats in a star-studded field. Joining the Kats in Frisco will be Mississippi State, Texas Tech and Nebraska in a round-robin format.
Both Mississippi State and Texas Tech made their way to the College World Series in Omaha in 2018 and have been familiar foes for Sam Houston in recent years. The Kats faced off with the Bulldogs in a year ago at Minute Maid Park as part of the Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic. Sam Houston most recently squared off with the Red Raiders in 2017 when the Kats took down nationally-ranked Texas Tech in consecutive games in Lubbock to claim the Lubbock Regional title and advance to the program’s first-ever Super Regional.
Sam Houston will open up the Frisco Classic on Friday, March 1 with a 3:00 p.m. game vs Mississippi State and follow it up on Saturday, March 2 with a 2:00 p.m. meeting with Nebraska. The Kats will then play in the tournament finale on Sunday, March 3 at 3:00 p.m. against Texas Tech.
