Not sure why we would go for artificial turf. We have a fairly warm climate and a turf grass management program. Did they want to get rid of a grounds crew?

It's artificial turf around the plate and in foul territory (including baselines), all fair ground is still natural.

It is 100% a move that makes upkeep easier. It's for sure not actually better for playing baseball.

Sam Highfill confirmed that he would be used in the closer role this season. I am interested to see if that will start early in the season or if he will be limited to acc play.

We really should play a weekend series against Coastal every year.

Currently up 8-3 in the top of the 5th.

They're expected to be worse than previous years, but they shouldn't be a slouch. I think we just got some hot bats last night. In particular Nolan looked really good.

8-0 start to the season but currently down 6-1 in the bottom of the 4th against Radford. Hopefully this can anti-jinx it.

Not that losing to a mid-major team in a midweek game is the worst thing in the world. But still, worth a shot

We missed the tourney, in part, due to weak OOC schedule last year right?

Is this year any better?

^^It's actually worse. Last year's OOC opponents had an average RPI of 130. This year, preseason, the RPI was 148.

Avent is putting all of his chips on ACC play. We see how that worked out last year.

This team has no excuse to not start 13-0. fortunately they are 12-0 so far after today's walkoff.

Last year they lost to campbell and were swept by northeastern at home. Probably wouldve been fine with the shitty OOC if they hadnt lost so many games. Improvement so far this year

That wasn't the big part of missing the tourney though. The team didn't win a single series against a good team in conference. Playing better OOC opponents would not have changed that. They just weren't good.

ugly game yesterday but this team can definitely hit. Saw some shadows of the bad defensive start to come out a little bit.

Lawson blows a save only to have the offense come through in the 10th and he gets the win.

Stupid UNCW and the CAA using flo sports for their coverage.

There is no reason this team shouldn't win their pool, but i am expecting them to blow it.


Also, the infield is so much better when Peyton Green is riding the bench.

.918% fielding
24 errors in two seasons
19.5% of the team's total errors
demoted from SS in both seasons

People are shitting on him but at the same time mad because Avent wouldn't let Tommy Tanks play 3rd. He currently has a .826 fielding percentage at LSU lol.

Whew. Runners on 1st and 3rd, one out, 3-0 count. Instead of taking a pitch we ground one up the middle that bounces over pitchers head and squirts into the outfield. Butthole clinched on that one. Thought we grounded into a double play.

Really wish Groover would have made it to 3rd though. Would have scored on a sac fly the following at bat.

Up 1 going to bottom of 11th. Let’s go Pack!
