Wayne's World: Rice Thresher baseball preview

(02/14/18 1:19pm)

Twenty-six years ago, the movie “Wayne’s World” debuted in theaters. The day of the premiere, Feb. 14, 1992, Rice baseball lost 9-1 to the University of Texas, Austin to drop new 55-year-old head coach Wayne Graham’s career Division I record to 5-3. While the movie has lost some of its cultural impact over the years, it remains Wayne’s world on the baseball diamond at Rice. Graham enters his 28th season looking to bring the Owls back to the College World Series for the first time in a decade. He will rely on a deep, but largely unproven, pitching staff and an offense led by junior shortstop Ford Proctor and junior catcher Dominic DiCaprio. His Owls will be gunning for their 24th consecutive appearance in the NCAA tournament, a streak that dates back all the way to 1995.
