HOUSTON – Houston Baseball will test the work of its Fall preparation when it hosts its annual Red-White World Series at Cougar Field next Tuesday-Thursday. Game times are slated for Tuesday at 4 p.m., Wednesday at 4 p.m. and Thursday at 6:30 p.m., if necessary.
“The Red-White World Series is a tradition here at the University of Houston that we’ve done the past couple of years,” head coach Todd Whitting said. “It’s an opportunity for the kids after a long, hard Fall season of getting after it for well over 40 days to pair off into teams, put on the game uniform and try to finish up the Fall with a bang. It’s exciting. It’s a two-out-of-three series just trying to get them into a competitive environment. The kids look forward to it every year. The coaches look forward to it every year. It’s just kind of a climax and an end to what’s been so far a great Fall season.”
The 2013-14 team will split into two teams with bragging rights on the line. Depending on the results during the first two days, the Thursday scrimmage is slated as an ‘if necessary’ game.
The Red-White World Series is free and open to the public.
