The TCU baseball team kicked off its season over the weekend, landing a pair of wins over top 10 squads. Texas Christian participated as a member of the College Baseball Showdown alongside five other programs.

The Horned Frogs took down SEC powers Vanderbilt and Arkansas to kick off the year before dropping an extra inning matchup to Missouri on Sunday.

In that three-game set, a number of players showed out, most notably Austin Davis. The graduate transfer landed Big XII Player of the Week honors after hitting .538 over the opening weekend. Davis scored five runs and knocked in five more.

The offensive fireworks were on full display throughout the showdown as the TCU baseball team racked up 37 runs in three games, but while the performance on the field was impressive, it was a young bat boy who stole the show.

He spotted celebrating with the team at every possible chance, once being filmed doing the griddy on his way to pick up a TCU player’s baseball bat.

Fans around the country were quick to chime in with reaction.

One person wrote, “TCU said bet, no fun for us, we are going to let these seven-year-olds hit the Griddy on your graves.”

Another said, “The TCU baseball bat boys this weekend were hilarious. They were the ultimate hype crew for the Frogs. Flexing and celebrating after every strikeout / base hit.”

Former Virginia baseball star Stephen Schoch even got in on the fun, posting, “So many great things about this clip but I think my favorite is the fact that he is wearing cleats. Lil dude is ready to go in in a moment’s notice and I’m here for it!”

TCU hopes the celebration continues next weekend in a series with Florida State.
