Previous season[edit]

On the heels of four consecutive trips to the College World Series, the 2018 TCU Horned Frogs baseball team entered the season with high expectations, ranking as high as #4 in the preseason polls.[2][3] However, the team did not live up to the lofty expectations, posting a record of 33-23, including a disappointing 10-13 in conference play. Nevertheless, the Horned Frogs, entering the Big 12 Tournament as the six seed, fought to the final where they fell 5-6 to the Baylor Bears in 11-innings.[4] Despite their impressive Big 12 Tournament showing, TCU failed to make the 2018 NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament.
