MWC Tournament starts today

With the regular season completed, the Horned Frogs now turn their attention to achieving their postseason goals. That starts with avenging their loss in last season's Mountain West Conference Tournament, although this year they won't be playing at home as this year's tournament is being played at Tony Gwynn Stadium in sunny San Diego (the picture above was taken this afternoon as the Frogs worked out, and was posted on the TCU Baseball facebook page). Not too shabby a place to play some ball, huh?

The action gets started here in a few hours, when #4-seed BYU and #5-seed UNLV face eacother at 5:00pm Texas time. Following that game, it'll be #3-seed San Diego State against #6-seed (and defending tournament champs) Utah at approximately 9:00pm Texas time. Both games are being televised on The Mtn and CBS-College Sports.

As the #1-seed, TCU will face the lower-seeded team between tonight's winners. So that means that they're first game (being played tomorrow night at 9:00pm Texas time) will be against either Utah, BYU or UNLV. The Frogs' objective this weekend is pretty simple: three straight wins and they are conference champs.

For the full schedule of this week's tournament, check out the conference's MWC Tournament Central page, including the full bracket.

Thats a pretty ridiculous view behind the outfield...

3 straight wins to capture the conference tourney would be huge in the eyes of the NCAA tournament selection committee. One last push to get into the Top 8. Hopefully some teams ahead of TCU stumble in their tourneys and drop in the polls/eyes of the selection committee (looking at you Louisville, UCLA, and SCAR).

I'm pretty sure that's not Tony Gwynn stadium... I've been there and it's about 10 miles inland

Ha, I thought so too...but I've never been there and that was what the TCU Baseball facebook page said. Maybe they're working out at USD?
