Summer sessions: An update on the Longhorns playing in collegiate wood bat leagues

Posted June 24th, 2019


Instead of the beach or a campsite, some of Texas’ Longhorns are spending their summer vacations at a baseball field.

This summer, Texas has sent a handful of its players to participate in various collegiate wood bat leagues across the country. Chatham, Mass., may not be a place that many UT fans are familiar with, but right-handers Kolby Kubichek and Ty Madden have allowed three earned runs over 18 1/3 innings with the town’s team this summer. During their freshmen years at Texas, the two newcomers combined for a 4-2 record, 52 strikeouts, 36 walks and a 4.33 ERA.

How are the Longhorns doing this summer? Here is an update for 10 of the Longhorns:
