Texas baseball wants to spruce up the atmosphere at home games this spring with an emcee.
On Tuesday, the athletic department posted an ad for students to try out to be the team’s official emcee. Contestants must be currently enrolled at Texas with an anticipated graduation date of no later than May 2016. They are asked to upload a video audition to Instagram, tagging @texaslonghorns and using the hashtag #HornsMCBaseball.
The Longhorns will begin full team practices on Jan. 23. They open the season Feb. 13-15 at Rice.
