‘Everyone has something to prove this year’: UH baseball eyes Omaha

Every day, junior first baseman Ryan Hernandez looks out at Schroeder Park’s outfield walls and sees the numbers: four, two, 15 and 21.

They represent important milestones in Houston baseball history: four NCAA Super Regionals, two College World Series appearances, 15 conference titles and 21 NCAA Regionals played in.

After looking at these numbers each day, Hernandez often tells his coach Todd Whitting that they are going to have to update the outfield walls after the 2021 season.

He believes this year’s team is capable of greatness.

“I think we’re going to go to Omaha this year,” Hernandez said.
