WTAMU set to host 2019 LSC Baseball Championship

The field is set for the 2019 Lone Star Conference Baseball Championship presented by Under Armour as the second seeded Buffaloes of West Texas A&M will host the single-elimination event on May 9-11 at Wilder Park in Canyon.

Angelo State claimed the league's regular season title with an overall record of 42-8 with a 22-2 mark in league action but the Rams were unable to host the tournament championship due to a scheduling conflict at Foster Field in San Angelo. Hosting duties went to the second seeded Buffs as they picked up the most regular-season wins in program history with an overall mark of 39-10 with an 18-6 record in league play.

The event will start on Thursday with quarterfinal action at 3 p.m. as fourth-seeded Cameron and fifth-seeded UT Permian Basin at 3 p.m. followed by third-seeded Texas A&M-Kingsville and sixth-seeded Tarleton at 7 p.m. at Wilder Park.

Semifinal action will take place on Friday starting at 3 p.m. with Angelo State battling the CU/UTPB winner followed by the Buffs taking on the TAMUK/TSU winner at 7 p.m. Saturday's conference title game is set for a 3 p.m. first pitch at Wilder Park with that winner claiming the league's automatic bid into the NCAA Division II Baseball Postseason.
