On May 30, 2009, the Eagles played in the longest game in college-baseball history — a 25-inning game — during the NCAA Division I Baseball Championship regional tournament at Austin, Texas. The University of Texas Longhorns — who were designated the visiting team despite playing on their home field — won, 3-2. The game lasted seven hours three minutes.[1][2]

Exhibition game with Boston Red Sox[edit]

The team has traditionally played an exhibition game each spring against the Boston Red Sox, as part of the Red Sox' spring training (Grapefruit League) season.[3]
