Aggie baseball in WAC finale

The Aggie baseball team is taking the field for their season series finale this weekend against Hawaii.

The team has to split a four-game home series against the Warriors in order to qualify for the WAC Tournament in Mesa, Ariz., May 26-29.

How did it get to this point for the Aggies?

Well, the team doesn’t play a particularly tough preseason schedule and doesn’t have a reputation of being a great road team. The Aggies started the season 9-0 and are now 32-20, but just 7-13 in the WAC and in eighth place in the nine-team league. NMSU is 2-14 in its past 16 games.

Hawaii on the other hand is 30-21 overall but 15-5 in the WAC, good enough for first place.

The series starts with a Thursday doubleheader at 3 p.m. at Presley Askew Field.
