Baseball coach throws out first pitch

Baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the Texas Rangers' home game with the Boston Red Sox on Friday.

A crowd of 40,311 was on hand at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

TCU has won conference championships all six seasons Schlossnagle has been in the Horned Frog dugout. During that span, TCU has posted the six-highest single-season win totals in its history.

Schlossnagle has been named the Mountain West Conference Coach of the Year all four years TCU has been in the league. Including the 2003 campaign, when he was head coach at UNLV, Schlossnagle is a five-time conference coach of the year.

The 2009 Horned Frogs (40-18) won the Fort Worth Regional before falling in the deciding game of the Super Regional to Texas, leaving TCU just one game short of the College World Series.
