Last season was all about Texas State. The Bobcats went in with the top pitcher, and found out quickly they also had the top hitter in the Southland. RHP Carson Smith is gone, but 1B Casey Kalenkosky, an NJCAA All-American turned NCAA All-American, is back for another round.

No official word yet on the fate of the existing scoreboard, but seeing that the new board makes no mention of score keeping, it would be safe to assume Texas will keep the existing structure in its current role, while shifting the graphics and video playback to the new board. Continue reading
