The 2020 baseball season was cut short for the Bobcats after the Sunbelt Conference released a statement suspending play indefinitely due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Although Texas State’s season was cut short, the team showed promise with a final record of 14-4. It’s hard to say how the rest of the season would have unfolded, but the Bobcats showed promise of a solid season.

As of March 30, the NCAA council ruled that all Division I schools can extend eligibility to athletes in spring sports who were affected by the virus.

What does this mean for the Bobcats? This year’s senior athletes are eligible to play in 2021– and fans could see starts from players like Will Hollis and Wes Engle.

For now, players are filling their time with family and online classes. A few players have even taken to Twitter updating fans on the preparation of the 2021 season.

Here’s a look into some game day moments from this season at Bobcat Ballpark:
