2021 Big 12 Conference Baseball Tournament Schedule, Preview
With the regular season in college baseball in the rear view, the Big 12 Conference baseball tournament is set to start on Tuesday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City. Kansas and West Virginia will kick off the tournament as they will be the lone game. First pitch is set at 6 p.m. and the winner will face Texas while the loser will be sent home packing.
Texas and TCU shared the Big 12 regular season title but due to the Longhorns winning the head-to-head series over the Horned Frogs, Texas will be the number one overall seed.
The tournament will wrap up on Sunday as the conference tournament champion will be crowned. Here is the full slate for the Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship.
