Something Waiting for the Cowboy Baseball Team When They Got Home

May 21, 2023

STILLWATER – There is still plenty of work to be done and no doubt that baseball equipment manager Len Magby has some uniforms to clean up and wash out some of the celebratory ice cream that had to have infiltrated those bright orange game jerseys after the trip to Braums to celebrate on the way home from Norman. However, when the Cowboys arrived back at O’Brate Stadium there was an announcement to be made and some more celebrating to do with some special hardware. Athletic Chad Weiberg was waiting in the Cowboys O’Brate Stadium clubhouse/locker room to do the honors.

The Bedlam Trophy presented late Saturday was for winning the baseball series and the Big 12 Trophy is for the three-way tie at the top of the conference standings at the end of the regular season. The Big 12 Baseball Championship Tournament presented by Phillips 66, who also happens to be the sponsor of the Bedlam standings will open on Wednesday and guess what? Yes, Bedlam is on tap for the first day that afternoon at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas.

Big 12 Tournament Opening Schedule - Weds, May 24 Game Time
#5 Kansas State (33-22/13-11) vs. #4 TCU (33-22/13-11) 9 a.m.
#8 Kansas (24-30/8-16) vs. #1 Texas (38-18/15-9) 12:30 p.m.
#7 Oklahoma (30-24/11-13) vs. #2 Oklahoma State (37-16/15-9) 4 p.m.
#6 Texas Tech (37-19/12-12) vs. #3 West Virginia (39-16/15-9) 7:30 p.m.

Now, because the 2022-23 school year standings for Bedlam are tied at 13-13-1 after baseball on Saturday, the meeting in Arlington on Wednesday becomes the season tiebreaker for this school year.

Pokes Report
Cowboys celebrate in their own locker room.

There is still next year, but after that uncertainty on which sports will continue to play each other with OU going to the SEC and Oklahoma State in the Big 12 Conference. We know football will not be possible for a significant number of years and the other sports will make their decisions on if, when, and how they will play each other going forward. 

Needless to say, all wins against Oklahoma are good. As the time competing in the same conference draws to a close there wins by Cowboys and Cowgirls teams are getting more and more enjoyable and memorable.
