Texas A&M head baseball coach Jim Schlossnagle is heading into his third season in College Station, already accumulating an impressive 80-45 (33-27 SEC) record, including the memorable 2022 run in the College World Series.
However, the upcoming 2024 campaign is already filled with the highest expectations this program has dealt with in quite some time, led by the 6’4″, 230-pound sophomore stud outfielder Jace LaViolette, who is now joined by former Stanford outfielder/pitcher Braden Montgomery, who brings another dose of power at the place.
Joining former Cal State Northridge shortstop Ali Camarillo to the fold, the Aggies’ No. 4 transfer class should help replace the losses of veterans Hunter Haas, Trevor Warner, and Jack Moss in 2024.
Pitching-wise, Texas A&M is equipped with a bevy of talented arms. New pitching coach Max Wiener has replaced Nate Yeskie after his recent stint with the Seattle Mariners, looking to establish consistency in the bullpen to avoid too much reliance on the starting arms.
Outside of LaViolette’s obvious ability, freshman Gavin Grahovic could make an immediate impact this season, coming in ranked as Perfect Games’ 40th-ranked prospect after removing his name from the 2023 MLB Draft.
Texas A&M’s 2024 season opener is just 15 days away, as the Aggies will host McNeese State inside Olsen Field to kick things off. Ahead of the start of SEC play next month, here is every nationally broadcast game for the Maroon & White during the regular season.
