Tadlock praises team for 'working hard, doing things the right way'

OMAHA, NE (KCBD) -

Just before Noon on Friday, Texas Tech head baseball coach Tim Tadlock, Ole Miss head coach Mike Bianco, TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle and Virginia head coach Brian O'Connor, addressed the media at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska.

All of the coaches spent time discussing their teams' strengths and strategies, but Tadlock discussed the talent in the Big 12 Conference at length, and the strength of teams in the Lone Star State.

"I think on any given day our league (Big 12) can play with anybody. I think baseball is important to the Big 12," Tadlock said, "I think it's a neat recognition to have three teams here - and almost had four here. It's something that is neat for the state of Texas. There are some really good teams in the state of Texas that aren't here and these guys know that."

Tadlock was asked about parity in college baseball and he was quick to give credit to anyone who is involved with the sport across the nation.

"The simplest thing is that there is a lot of people out there working really hard and that's why you have the equal balance across college baseball," Tadlock continued, "You don't get to the post season without working hard and doing things the right way."

Before the season began, Texas Tech was picked to finish eighth in the Big 12 Conference.

Tadlock attributed the team's success to playing a great game the right way with humility, passion and hard work.

The Red Raiders will face one of the talented Texas and Big 12 Conference teams Tadlock discussed in their first game at the College World Series.

Texas Tech will battle TCU Sunday at 2 p.m. at TD Ameritrade Park. The game will be televised on ESPN2.
