CWS big part of Majors' trip to Nebraska

ENID, Okla. — No Big 12 Conference team made the College World Series this season — Oklahoma and Oklahoma State included.

But the Enid Majors did — at least as spectators.

The Majors arrived in the Omaha area Sunday on a trip that will mix business (five games) with pleasure (going to the CWS tonight and Tuesday night.

“It’s a great experience seeing big-time baseball,’’ said Majors pitching coach Tyson Seng, who went to  Omaha when he was playing for the Majors.

Seng said it’s different seeing it live as opposed to watching it on television.

“You get a lot better feeling when you see it firsthand,’’ Seng said. “I remember the guys moving on the field, all the people in the stands, all the publicity they were getting ... it makes you want to get in there and work hard.’’

Seng went on to play three seasons at Oklahoma, although he never played in the CWS.

“It’s just great that we’re allowed to travel and experience this,’’ he said. “Out-of-town trips allow everybody to get to know each other better. We can have fun, but we can get better, too.’’

Enid, 17-5 and riding an nine-game winning streak, will play Waverly, Neb., in a 11 a.m. doubleheader today with Jerry Kearney and Brad Kinsey scheduled to pitch.

The Majors face Dinsdale in a 11 a.m. doubleheader at Lincoln (Neb.) Southeast High School Tuesday and will face U-Stop at Den Hartog in a 10 a.m. single game Wednesday before going home.

“We have a bunch of good arms on this team,’’ Seng said. “Everyone has done a great job of  listening and trying to get better. We have started off well and we’ll try to finish it well.’’
