TCU Baseball Schedule 2024: What To Know

Coming off its run to the 2023 College World Series, TCU baseball looks poised to make another trip to Omaha in 2024.

Jan 31, 2024 by Kyle Kensing
Highlights: Arkansas Vs. TCU

Turning the NCAA Tournament into its own veritable home-run derby made TCU the must-see team of the past postseason. 

The Horned Frogs reload for 2024 with plenty of power in their bats, but an intriguing pitching staff, as well. 

All told, TCU is built to once again reach the College World Series. 

The Horned Frogs' road to Omaha includes an early-season trip not far from home when they take on the Kubota College Baseball Series at Arlington's Globe Life Field. 

Before TCU takes over the home of the reigning World Series champion Texas Rangers, get to know more about the 2024 Horned Frogs:

How Did TCU Baseball Do In 2023?

After sputtering in the always tough Big 12 Conference, finishing the regular season 13-11, TCU baseball caught fire late in the 2023 season. 

The Horned Frogs began their postseason march with a dominant run through the conference tournament. 

TCU parlayed the Big 12 Championship into a five-game, undefeated tear through their Regional and Super Regional en route to the College World Series. 

After a 2-2 showing in Omaha, ultimately bowing out to runner-up Florida, TCU concluded 2023 at 44-22. It was the program's 12th season of 40 or more wins since 2007. 

Who Coaches TCU Baseball?

Kirk Saarloos debuted as TCU head coach with quite a flourish in 2022, taking over for his former colleague and Horned Frogs legend Jim Schlossnagle

Saarloos led the Horned Frogs to the 2022 Big Ten Conference title, which sent the program to NCAA Tournament for the seventh time in eight full seasons. 

The coach lifted the bar further with the College World Series run in his second season. 

Has TCU Ever Won The College World Series? 

No, TCU has never won a College World Series title. 

The 2023 College World Series appearance marked the program's sixth, all of which have come since 2010. 

The Horned Frogs have never reached the championship round. 

Notable Returning Players

Karson Bowen, C 

Karson Bowen burst onto the college baseball scene in 2023 with a .350 batting average and .502 slugging percentage, both tops among returning TCU batters. 

Bowen's outstanding debut campaign garnered him Freshman All-America recognition. 

Bowen also earned All-Regional honors after delivering three multiple-hit games in the Fayetteville Regional. 

Kole Klecker, RHP 

Freshman All-American and Big 12 All-Conference selection Kole Klecker emerged as the ace of the TCU pitching staff, amassing a 3.72 ERA and 10-4 record in 17 starts and 19 appearances. 

Klecker's late-season finish included a seven-inning, three-hit, scoreless outing in the Super Regional win over Indiana State. 

Notable Newcomers

Ben Hampton, LHP 

Two-time (2022 and 2023) All-Big 12 pitcher and 2021 Freshman All-American Ben Hampton makes the in-league move from West Virginia to TCU. 

Hampton adds a dependable left-handed starter to the Horned Frogs rotation 

Hampton struck out 66 batters in 85 innings last season with a 4.45 ERA. In 2022, he struck out 93 batters. 

Zach Wadas, Utility 

Perfect Game named Zach Wadas a top-100 prospect in the class of 2023, in part for his defensive play. 

Wadas' glove could make him a versatile option across a variety of positions in his freshman season.
