    Default Runner Baseball 2017

    I had my first chance to see the 2017 team in an Intrasquad scrimmage this past Saturday. I must say I left impressed. There were very few walks by the pitchers and the bats looked good. One of the guys was called out for lack of hustle and the whole team had to run. It was good to see some of the returning players go yard and really hit the ball hard. Has anyone else been to a practice or scrimmage this Fall?

    I am ready for a good season. last year was my 1st year as a season ticket holder. I didn't make too many games because I live in Houston, and it was a bad year. when I was a student I made it to most games.

    We had some key injuries to pitchers last year, didn't we? Let's hope for a healthy, productive season from our boys this season.

    we had multiple star position players out for different reasons.

    fair to say we had poor relief pitching last year.

    To be fair to the Bullpen they were worn out because they had to pitch so often. The positive I am seeing now is there are a lot of strikes being thrown by everyone.

    Did you ever find out what the deal was with Blair? Was he moonlighting last season?

    Our staff does a helluva job with our kids considering the embarrassing state of our facilities. I know there are other factors that weigh in on recruits' minds also, but imagine the kinds of recruits we could pull if we had a stadium even half the size of Rice's Reckling Park. And then there's Houston's baseball stadium which is gonna get even nicer...

    I've gotta hand it to UH. They're moving forward at maximum warp with nearly everything on campus right now.
