Tech games at Clemson televised on CSS; Championship shirts available, too

Championship tee shirts available
Monday through University Bookstore


COOKEVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee Tech fans and alumni are invited and encouraged to attend the games this weekend when the Golden Eagle baseball team plays in the NCAA Clemson Regional.

Fans who want to follow the Golden Eagles but cannot attend, have a couple of options, including live TV coverage by CSS, which is showing every game at the tournament.
Tech captured the 2009 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament championship, going 4-0 in its visit to Brooks Stadium in Paducah, Ky., last weekend.

With the tourney title, coach Matt Bragga’s Golden Eagles also earned a spot in the NCAA Tournament, and will play this weekend in the Clemson Regional. Tech faces Clemson Friday at 6 p.m. CDT. Alabama and Oklahoma State are the other teams in the four-team Regional, with the winner advancing to Arizona next week for a Super Regional.

The entire Clemson Regional will be televised by CSS, which is seen throughout the Southeast (channel 34 on the Cookeville cable). Matt Stewart will be doing the play-by-play action, and Rusty Ensor will be bringing the color commentary.

In addition, the games can be heard live via FREE Teamline, with Nick Heidelberger and Ben Shannon calling the Golden Eagle action. The broadcast is available on the Internet (at TTUsports.com) or the telephone (1-800-846-4700 and team code 0654). There is no charge for the call.

Clemson will also be providing live stats throughout the weekend on its website (www.clemsontigers.cstv.com).

To show support of the team, the University Bookstore will begin selling a specially designed OVC Tournament Championship tee shirt. The shirts will be available both in the store and online on the store’s website (www.tenn-tech.bncollege.com) beginning Monday.
