When it was announced that Tuesday’s game between Texas State and Texas A&M was sold out, Ty Harrington’s team had to like its chances. Something about big crowds at home often pushes the Bobcats to victory.

“Our kids were really excited to come back (after batting practice) and see a nice crowd,” Harrington said after his team’s 4-1 win. “It probably added an extra step, some giddy-up and I was proud for them.”

With its win against the Aggies, Texas State improved to 4-1 in games played in front of the five best crowds in Bobcat Ballpark history.

Rank – Opponent – Attendance – Date – Result
1st – Texas A&M – 2,603 – March 30, 2010 – Won, 6-5
2nd – Texas – 2,593 – March 3, 2009 – Lost, 6-5
3rd – Texas A&M – 2,512 – April 23, 2013 – Won, 4-1
4th – Nebraska – 2,386 – Feb. 18, 2011 – Won, 7-2
5th – Notre Dame – 2,181 – March 3, 2012 – Won, 6-0

Texas State has nine of its 15 remaining games at home.
