NORMAN – The Oklahoma baseball team will be the No. 4 seed in next week's Big 12 Championship at Oklahoma City's Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. The Sooners finished fourth in the league standings with a 14-10 conference record and 34-21 mark overall.

 

Oklahoma faces No. 5 seed Baylor on Wednesday, May 23 at 9 a.m. CT. The Sooners swept the Bears earlier this in Norman. Baylor finished the regular season at 32-19 overall and 13-11 in the Big 12.

All-time, Oklahoma is 3-3 against Baylor in the Big 12 Championship. The two teams have not taken the field together in the postseason since 2013.

 

Oklahoma has twice won the Big 12 Championship. The Sooners won the inaugural tournament in 1997 and followed with a title in 2013. Oklahoma is 36-35 in 21 Big 12 Championships and is one of just two teams to qualify for all 22 in the league's history.
