The eyes of college baseball are upon Oklahoma State. No team in America enjoyed such a week as the Cowboys did.
Oklahoma State kicked off its awesome week on Tuesday in Norman, Oklahoma. Humid, chilly and cloudy conditions in Oklahoma made fans think that the game would feature little offense. That wasn’t the case for OSU. The Cowpunchers from Stillwater rattled off seven runs and 10 hits en route to a resounding 7-1 Bedlam victory.
After any Bedlam win, Cowboy fans find themselves on cloud nine.
This couldn’t get better? Right?
Oh, but it did.
For years, rumors have swirled around Stillwater regarding the new – much needed – new OSU baseball park. The funding was never there, and the lot north of the Greenwood Tennis Center stayed quiet. Until early February when the parking lot officially closed. Stillwaterites who drive down McElroy road everyday perked up their ears at the sight of dirt work.
Just a day after a Bedlam victory, Oklahoma State unveiled the renderings for their new baseball stadium. Cowboy fans, and coaches alike swooned.
“When you walk into this facility, you’ll be so inspired by it that you can’t help but strive for the best because you’re going to realize that this is an important part of our school and that people believe in what we’re doing to the extent that this became a reality.”

The Cowboys capped off their remarkable stretch with a weekend series vs. TCU. The Pokes welcomed the Frogs to town, and treated them to a three game sweep. Friday night’s game lasted until about 1:00 a.m. The Pokes won in walk-off fashion for their first win. A doubleheader loomed after the late Friday night. The two games on Saturday featured three home runs from Carson McCusker and keeping TCU’s Luken Baker relatively quiet.
The Cowboys are back in action Tuesday at 6:00 for a road game with Wichita State.
