The college baseball world is mourning the death of legendary Texas baseball coach Augie Garrido.
You can expect there to be many tributes to Garrido this weekend, especially around the Big 12.
On Twitter, current Texas baseball coach David Pierce urged fans to show up wearing black sweatbands in remembrance of Garrido for the Longhorns’ home series against Kansas. Texas faces Kansas at 6:30 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Augie meant so much to baseball, The University of Texas, and to me personally. He was a tremendous coach and supporter, but I valued our friendship more than anything.
