Oklahoma City is hosting the Big 12 baseball tournament this year.  The West Virginia University baseball team was too close for comfort to the deadly tornadoes' path.

"We're about 10 miles North of where the tornados paths went through today, in the brick town section of Oklahoma City," said WVU Sports Information Director Grant Dovey.

With the powerful wind and rain, the team is spending most of their time in the hotel, but surprisingly did get a chance to practice.

"We got one practice in today and then every team practices at the actual ballpark tomorrow that we will be playing."

According to Dovey, the players are handling the stress of such a bad storm pretty well.

"Kids are always resilient and always bounce back from everything and a season filled with adversity it's just another step to the Big 12 championship."

If the tournament isn't postponed the mountaineers face Kansas on Wednesday to start the double elimination tournament.

"We've lost 5 in a row and then we won the last regular season game on Saturday afternoon so it was a real confidence booster going into the tournament."

The tournament's fate is still up in the air as officials will discuss Tuesday their plan of action. Until then, the team will continue to try to focus on baseball.
