TISHOMINGO, OK --- Historic. That's one word that can be used to describe Murray State College's baseball season.
The Aggie's have posted a 40-and-17 record and have brought home their program's first conference title.
"It's unbelievable actually...it's a good feeling just because you know you can look up in the record books and know that there's nobody right behind you. It's only your name and the people that you're playing with right now," sophomore short stop, Keach Ballard said.
"It's a great honor, it's something I'll remember for the rest of my life. It's something that no one can ever take away from us or the school," sophomore pitcher/outfielder, Jared Sterling said.
And the Aggie's aren't finished making history. They will be hosting a Super Regional for the first time.
They are confident that they can get the wins they need on their home turf.
"It's very good for us because were 23-2 here at home this season. Last year we only lost three games at home. So were really confident playing on our home field. Our guys play with a lot more confidence and enthusiasm. We have great crowd support. We really don't feel we can lose at home," head coach Zach Crabtree said.
Murray State only needs three more wins to earn themselves a trip to the World Series and lucky for them they are clicking on all cylinders going into the super regional.
"I think we just need to play our game. One of the things our coach always tells us don't worry about who were playing just play the game against the game. And play Murray State baseball, don't worry about who were playing. We've been successful with that plan," Sterling said.
The Aggie's are strong both offensively and defensively but their biggest strength is playing together as a team.
"We don't have anybody that's the superstar...We just have 35 guys trying to accomplish the same goals. They don't care if they're starting or if they're coming in to pinch hit. They've all accepted their roles. It's all about winning and it's all about the team on the front of the chest,
Murray State will host Hesston College at 1 p.m. and MCC-Longview at 4 on Friday.
