TCU has sold 6,800 tickets, according to Del Conte. He claimed that only 900 are going directly to A&M fans – the 600 dictated by the NCAA to be reserved for the visiting team and 311 bought by fans using the code TCU15.
The Horned Frogs football coach hosted the school's baseball team at his home earlier this week and had a few words of advice for TCU star closer Riley Ferrell, one of the nation's top pitchers who has a pair of blown saves in the past two weeks. Even though his recent struggles have been in the spotlight, Ferrell has converted 32 of 34 save attempts during his career heading into TCU's Super Regional with Texas A&M beginning Saturday.
Social media was abuzz Thursday with speculation that TCU’s Lupton Stadium would be filled with maroon-clad Aggie fans, giving the Texas A&M baseball team a home-field advantage during the Fort Worth Super Regional this weekend thanks to the not-so-original ticket code: TCU15.
“Before the regional started, we all went around the room and said something we were going to vow to spend this extra time on,” he said. “If we could sharpen up one thing, what could it be? I said I want to sharpen up the routine plays.”
Preston Morrison has pitched a long time at TCU, but never better than last weekend when he matched a career-high with 10 strikeouts against North Carolina State in the Fort Worth Regional, coach Jim Schlossnagle said.
For Ferrell, it’s about a childhood touchstone. He grew up in College Station and went to A&M Consolidated High School. His mom and stepfather had football season tickets. Watching Aggie baseball was a passion, too.
