LUBBOCK,TX- The Red Raider baseball players were local celebrities Tuesday, greeted by an entourage and fans, after getting off the plane from sweeping Miami.

The team will host the college of Charleston this weekend, on their way to Omaha.

Fans young and old waited as the plane touched down at Chaparral airport around 2:30.

Some children brought baseballs for players to autograph.

Girlfriends, wives and families waited to hug the hard workers. 

This is the first time in program history the team has made it to the super regionals.
