The announced crowd of 6,895 fans who showed up to watch the baseball clash between Texas and Texas A&M was treated to a bit of nostalgia Tuesday night.
Not only did Longhorns legend Colt McCoy throw out the first pitch, but he threw it to an old teammate: Quan Cosby. The pair connected for more than 2,000 yards during their time on the 40 Acres, so there wasn’t a chance they were letting this one drop.
First pitch from Colt McCoy caught by Quan Cosby. It sure is the Lone Star Showdown on LHN.

It was also a pretty great time to live in the present at UFCU Disch-Falk Field, as the Longhorns completed an exciting 4-3 victory which included some dramatics in the later innings.
With the Aggies trying to mount a rally in the eighth inning, Texas first baseman Kacy Clemens charged an Aggies bunt and threw it to catcher Michael Cantu for the second out — allowing reliever Beau Ridgeway to escape the inning with a 4-3 lead.
