Harrington earns 500th win


Coach Ty Harrington captured his 500th career victory at Bobcat Ballpark Wednesday night as Texas State defeated the Baylor Bears 2-0.

“There have been a lot of great players and coaches along the way,” Harrington said. “I had a chance when I was leaving the locker room to look at our wall of championships and players that I didn’t even know until last week.”

Harrington has won all 500 of his games at Texas State and has fallen below the .500 win percentage mark once during his tenure.

“There’s been a lot of awesome players that have come through here,” said Cameron Friess, freshman catcher. “To help Coach Harrington get his 500th win is awesome especially at home against a good team like Baylor.”

Bobcat Trail parking to be removed for green space


Restricted parking spaces and a road in the middle of campus will be converted to green space during the Bobcat Trail Mall Redevelopment project.

Bobcat Trail, which runs perpendicular to LBJ Drive and Edward Gary Street, will be converted to a mall area, making a more pedestrian-friendly campus, said Michael Petty, director of facilities planning, design and construction. The estimated total cost of the project is $5.4 million. Underground infrastructure such as water, steam and sewer lines will be replaced and concrete will be removed to create the green space.
