Angelo State baseball team’s home opening ceremonies started over the weekend at the new Foster Field at 1st Community Credit Union Stadium.
Although the tailgate party and opening ceremony was moved to Saturday because of expected rain, Friday night’s game still happened as scheduled.
According to a release from Angelo State University, the Rams beat A&M-Kingsville, 10-9, Friday, bringing their overall score to 12-6 this season.
“I thought we played really good baseball tonight minus the sixth inning,” Angelo State head baseball coach Kevin Brooks said. “We did the little things really well tonight. I was really proud of the way we came back and competed after being behind in the sixth. We did the things we had to do to win.”
In the opening ceremony Saturday, the Rams split a doubleheader against Kingsville. The Rams move to 13-7 and 6-1 in the Lone Star Conference with a 2-1 series lead over the Javelinas going into the final Sunday.
“The crowd and the atmosphere were awesome today,” Brooks said. He wish that it would be like that every game. He is proud of his team for playing better in their second game than in their first, and he believes the team has a chance to win the series Sunday.
