Trending Up: Cowboy Baseball Returning To Glory Days

A tale of the tape from the past three seasons shows why the Holliday Dynasty is upon us.



In just three years, Cowboy Baseball has returned to the days of Pete Incaviglia, Robin Ventura and Gary Ward.

This just goes to show that, despite not making it to Omaha this season, this program is on the rise and it’s just a matter of time before the Holliday Dynasty really starts to dominate.
