Sam Houston baseball at Texas A&M Tuesday

When Sam Houston visits Olsen Field for a 6:35 p.m. baseball game with Texas A&M, the evening will have special significance for both Bearkat and Aggie fans alike.
Tuesday will mark the last visit to Olsen Field in a coaching role for Mark Johnson, the Bearkats' skipper who, in January, announced his retirement at the end of the 2011 season.
Johnson, who has led Sam Houston to NCAA Division I regional baseball playoff appearances in three of his first four years in Huntsville, also owns the most coaching victories in Aggie baseball history with 876 from 1985-2005.
Johnson will be honored by Texas A&M prior the beginning of the contest.
In his 21 years at A&M, Johnson directed the Aggies to two NCAA College World Series appearances, Southwest Conference championships in 1986, 1989, and 1993 and Big 12 league titles in 1998 and 1999.
His teams competed in the NCAA playoffs 13 times, making 13 NCAA regional appearances and reaching the College World Series in 1993 and 1999.
Texas A&M brings a 29-11 record into Tuesday night's contest. The Aggies stand 14-4 in Big 12 Conference competition. Tyler Naquin (.396) and Krey Bratsen (.350) are A&M's top hitters.
Sam Houston stands 27-15 for the season and 12-9 in Southland Conference action after dropping two of three in a road trip to Nicholls this past weekend.
Chris Andreas (.346), Ryan Mooney (.345), Greg Olson (.312) and Braeden Riley (.311) lead the Bearkats at the plate.
Following the game with Texas A&M, Sam Houston will return to Don Sanders Stadium for the Bearkats' next-to-last home Southland weekend series.
The Kats play host to Southeastern Louisiana Friday at 6:30 p.m., Saturday at 2 p.m. and Sunday at 1 p.m.
