Live radio play-by-play begins Thursday when BYU baseball starts league play in a three-game series at defending champion TCU who is ranked No. 4.
At least 30 games will be simulcast over local radio stations 960 AM and 92.9 FM, with Brent Norton calling the action again. These stations will not pre-empt game broadcasts, however, selected games may not be carried on live audio stream on the Internet (BYU Radio) due to schedule conflicts.
The Horned Frogs bring a 13-2 overall record and an unblemished 7-0 home record against BYU’s 7-9 record.
Scheduled to start on the mound for BYU are righthanders Justin Shutt (1-2, 8.15) in Thursday’s 6:30 p.m. CDT opener; Matt Neil (2-1, 3.72) in Friday’s 6:30 p.m. CDT game; and Chunner Nyberg (0-2, 11.93) in Saturday’s 1 p.m. CDT tilt.
Coach Vance Law will log his 600th game in his 11th year at the BYU helm on Thursday as he brings a 324-272-3 record into the three-game series with TCU. Law’s son Andrew, a Cougar second baseman, will be making his first trip since being sidelined with a hamstring injury last month.
BYU's Alex Wolfe was named to two honors for his performance against the University of Washington--CollegeBaseballInsider.com Regional Player of the Week and Mountain West Conference Player of the Week.
