Wanted a thread to post general discussion / articles / analysis about the 2015 NCAA D1 baseball season. So here goes. As of this OP, #1 TCU a is undefeated at 4-0 and about to board a plane to take on #9 Arizona State in a 3-game weekend series. For those that don't know, ASU is in its first year in its new home--Phoenix Municipal Stadium. ASU is a traditional power baseball program with 5 national championships in the 60s and 70s. Ian Kinsler, former Ranger, played college ball at ASU. Weather in PHX for the series looks like: - Mid 70s, falling to mid 60s and clear Fri night - Mid to upper 70s and clear Sat afternoon - Mid to low 70s and mostly clear Sun afternoon Perfect baseball weather. ASU this season has played 4 home games: - v. #5 OSU: W 4-3 - v. #5 OSU: W 5-3 - v. #5 OSU: L 8-9 - v. Oklahoma: W 7-4 Amazingly, ASU starts the season with 18 consecutive home games and will only play 23 on the road (35 at home). Common TCU opponents are OU, OSU, ACU, USC, and UCLA, however the only common 3-game series opponent is OSU. ASU is in year 1 of the Coach Tracy Smith era. Smith was the He'a coach at Indiana and led the Hoosiers to a national seed last year. I don't know much about ASU's team but will fog into it some tonight or tomorrow. They'll obviously have better hitting and pitching than we've seen in SIU and UTA.
