TCU won't forget the month of good baseball that led to the CWS | The Star-Telegram

Dane Steinhagen is one of just two seniors on this year's team, and while Schlossnagle is saying he will work like crazy to try and give him a chance to join a big league club, his baseball career may have ended Saturday night. But, if that was the last time he played, he went out playing the best ball of his career. It was a bittersweet last season, but Steinhagen, and others, know that they have much to be proud of.

"We were playing really good, solid baseball," he said. "All the way through. We got together as a team many times before we made that run and said that we can do this. We lost a few series in the year, but so what? We just kept battling all year.

Oof. Arrieta will never forget TCU's loss to the Chants, as it will be a part of his person forever. Don't make ink bets, folks.

But when the two schools met again over the weekend with a trip to the CWS finals on the line, the stakes were raised even higher. The loser this time around would have to get a tattoo honoring the winner's school.


Martin on TCU's campus | 247 Sports

Martin would be a big time get for the Frogs, if they can keep him in his home state as opposed to seeing him flee for Auburn. Getting him on campus is certainly a step in the right direction. He could make his decision as early as Tuesday.

*** UPDATE: Martin has chosen Auburn ***

Martin arrived to TCU's campus on Saturday night and will stay until Sunday afternoon.

The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder visited Auburn on Saturday.

The four-star all-purpose back was rated as the No. 7 All-Purpose Back in the 247Sports 2016 Composite Rankings. He was also rated as the No. 39 overall prospect in Texas.
