The hits keep coming for Texas athletics baseball. Well, figuratively. Actual hits are a rarity.

The Horns lost 6-2, 1-0, 5-2 to Baylor over the weekend, scoring a total of four runs over three games, and wasting good pitching before Baylor’s strong Game 3 at the plate.

The Longhorns have now lost three Big 12 games 1-0 this season.

The Horns, currently 22-20, and 5-13 in conference play, are dead last in the league, a full game behind Texas Tech. Texas Tech holds the crucial tie-breaker though. It’s really coming down to the wire!

YouPlusMedia, owner of www.youplusdallas.com, has created a totally unique web and mobile platform designed to generate crowd-sourced content for television.  American sportscaster and radio personality, Dan Patrick, the driving force behind The Dan Patrick Show and The Box Score, and DIRECTV, are collaborating with YouPlusMedia on this groundbreaking project.

For the first time, avid sports fans in Dallas and around the country will be able to audition to be part of The Box Score television segments produced by YouPlusMedia.  Sports fans can “audition” to be on the show from any sports bar, office, or their own living room, via The Box Score app.

Download the free iPhone app by visiting the iTunes store. Once the app downloads to your mobile device, you are ready to answer a variety of sports questions. Don’t have a smart phone? You can also answer questions by visiting the Dan Patrick Channel on YouPlusDallas.com.

Patrick currently hosts The Dan Patrick Show, which is a nationwide radio broadcast on Premiere Radio Networks. He can be heard on Dallas station 1310 The Ticket at 9pm CST Monday through Friday, on Austin station 1300 The Zone at 9am CST Monday through Friday, and seen on television on The Audience Network for DIRECTV subscribers.  Patrick also co-hosts NBC‘s Football Night in America, and serves as a senior writer for Sports Illustrated.

The Box Score, which airs Monday through Friday at noon EST on DIRECTV channel 101, will be the primary test ground for this effort.  The Box Score features the “Danettes”: executive producer Paul Pabst (“Paulie”), director of operations Patrick “Seton” O’Connor, talent coordinator /”guest wrangler” Todd Fritz (“Fritzy”), and official show blogger/Sports Illustrated writer Andrew Perloff (“McLovin”).  Patrick is an important and regular contributor to The Box Score.
