History

TCU has fielded a baseball team since 1896, before the school found its permanent home in Fort Worth. The Horned Frog baseball team began playing baseball in the Southwest Conference when it became a member of the conference in 1923Wikipedia Southwest Conference Page] . That year they finished the year with a 13-11 overall record and a 2-10 conference record.

The Frogs would add additional SWC titles in 1956, 1966, 1967 and 1994. With the building of Lupton Stadium and the hiring of Schlossnagle, the program has undergone a resurgence. During Schlossnagle's first year in 2004, the Frogs won their first conference title in a decade.
