Trying to get your hands on some season tickets? Thanks to a change made by the Big 12, you may be in luck! 1,000 season tickets will go on sale next Tuesday. Most Big 12 schools send back most of their allotment anyway, so this makes sense.
Former Oklahoma Sooners and current Colorado Rockies pitcher Jon Gray brought the big bat to Coors Field on Wednesday evening. Yeah, yeah, yeah, this happened at altitude, but this is out of the yard to straightaway center at any MLB stadium.
