Nebraska’s baseball team was officially eliminated from postseason play last weekend as Missouri came to town and pulled off the third conference sweep against the Huskers this season, leaving them at 5-19 in the Big 12. The loss made it mathematically impossible for Nebraska to make it into the Big 12 tourney, meaning that the baseball team only has six games left in the 2009 season.
It’s been a bad year for Husker baseball. Not much else you can say about that. This weekend, the Huskers get Cal State Bakersfield at home for a series that doesn’t really count for much anymore.
I’d like to ask you to support the baseball team. Fact is, the team needs its fans now more than ever as the young guys on this team will form the nucleus for what happens next year.
Five seniors - Erik Bird, Jake Mort, Cody Neer, Nick Sullivan, and Jeff Tezak - will be playing their last couple of series for the Big Red, and it’d be nice to show them that you care, so give some love to the baseball team. Show 'em that the "greatest fans in college football" can be the same fans for the baseball team.
Please head out to Haymarket this weekend (and next) and show the baseball team that it’s not only wins that count.
Tonight's game starts at 6:05pm, Saturday and Sunday games are scheduled for 2:05pm and 1:05pm.
