Javelinas to Ring in New Year Saturday

KINGSVILLE, Texas - The Texas A&M-Kingsville baseball team will open its 2014 season in celebratory fashion on Saturday when the host Houston-Victoria at 1 p.m. at Nolan Ryan Field.

The Javelinas are coming off a historic 42-18 season that resulted in a spot in the championship game of the South Central Regional Tournament after claiming the Lone Star Conference Tournament Championship. Head coach Jason Gonzales along with University President Dr. Steven Tallant will distribute championship rings prior to the start of the season opener. The ceremony is slated to begin at approximately 12:30 p.m.

Also last year's eight seniors will be recognized for their time with program and the traditions they help build. The octet will throw out the ceremonial first pitch simultaneously. The 2013 class won the second most games over a 4-year period than any other Javelinas senior class to date and was the first to go to back-to-back NCAA Regionals.
