Omaha ... here come the Red Raiders! For the first time in school history, the Texas Tech University baseball team is headed to the College World Series.
The Red Raiders notched a pair of 1-0 victories Saturday and Sunday over the College of Charleston, to win the best-of-three Super Regional series in front of record crowds at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.
Texas Tech was hosting the Super Regional series for the first time in school history, and both games attracted a record 4,811 fans. The Red Raiders treated their fans to stifling defensive and pitching performances in both victories.
The College of World Series begins June 14 in Omaha, Neb., and pits the remaining eight teams against each other with the national championship on the line.
"Congratulations to Head Coach Tim Tadlock, his staff and the student-athletes for earning the school's first trip to the College World Series," Texas Tech President M. Duane Nellis said. "I am so proud of their hard work and dedication, and the historic success they continue to experience is well-deserved.
"This is a tremendous accomplishment for our university, and we should all be beaming with pride. Guns up!"
