    Trey Wingenter called up to Padres

    Really was all only adjustments to his release point/arm slot and getting his arm stronger. He only really touched low 90’s at Auburn and his FB was pretty flat. As I said, he put a lot of work on strengthening his arm after getting drafted worked out a lot with a weighted ball, bands, etc. His off speed pitch has gotten a lot better and obviously his FB has really taken off and has some movement to it now. I think he got real lucky by being drafted by San Diego, in that he has been given the chance to progress and they haven’t been to successful at the MLB level, so he’s getting a chance a lot of really talented players out there who simply get stuck.

    Trey Wingenter called up to Padres

    This call up was a testament to the Padres Scout who saw the potential in Trey and the hard work Trey has put in since leaving the Plains. Ir was exciting to see him don his first MLB Uniform at Wrigley Field.

    I agree that it shouldn’t cost the guy his job. I was saying Henderson’s “blatant miss“ gave Cohen the ammo to get “his” guy and most likely those 98.4% of fans would probably support that decision when he left Smalls in. If the Lemonis to MSU reports are correct, I agree it’s a big gamble by Cohen and still believe Henderson should have gotten the position. Lemonis has a reputation as a great recruiter. He’ll get the opportunity, real quickly, to show everyone at MSU how great he is starting with the current returning MSU players. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Much thanks, @gr82b4au ! Doesn’t sound like much of a rally and it sounds like Henderson was late pulling the plug on Smalls........and might have given Cohen all he needs to get “his guy”.....whoever that may be. Great run though for the leg humpers, and IMO Henderson deserves to have the interim tag removed!

    2018 Baseball Recruiting Thread

    The photo included with the attached article shows a Hartselle RHP. I’m not familiar w/ Garrett, so I don’t know if it is him or not, but everything I’ve read about him says he’s a LHP. Haha. Regardless, congrats Garrett and War Eagle.
  7. I'm thinking it simply may be a mix up ......or maybe it has something to do with the transition/meshing together of the grass to turf......same here AU64....its just a guess/thought.
  8. I don't know how it would make easier to see other than it being a brighter green. ID love to see an official answer, because I have never been it like that.
  9. Gorgeous looking field, especially from the aerial shot. Question though, why does the sport turf extend onto the regular grass along the foul lines in LF & RF? It would seem more logical for the natural grass to run foul line to foul line and eliminate any potential seam or uneven transition in the field of play. I know it appears it is only a foot or so of sport turf in fair play, but just caught my eye. Fantastic job though by everyone involved. I know the players will appreciate it and it appears to be an unbelievable upgrade from the previous surface which I know was less than ideal.

    Seems to be a few of these pitchers developing arm problems this off season....

    2018 Opening Day Starters BSB

    That's pretty strong on paper and it's certainly exciting to see. Look forward to seeing how it will translate to the SEC. The only thing I'd be surprised at in this scenario is going with 22 pitchers and there's even a few left off like Glavin. Going to be interesting to see how we get down to the 35 for next spring. Thanks for pulling together and sharing. It's fun seeing the excitement around AU Baseball.
  12. BA didn't put much effort into the Alabama report. It list Josh as attending the West Okie JC and only list Klobo as an AU player of note. No mention of Cole, Blake, DRob, Mitchell, Coker etc. all I would take over Klobo. So far, we've come through pretty much unscathed for the '17-'18 class. Didn't think Steele would make it to campus. Would love too see Williams and Burns in AU Tiger unis next year. A lot of rounds left and some interesting picks that may have been "money" picks to use on future picks.
  13. FSU held them to 3 runs yesterday.
  14. It's a big loss for us, but a great opportunity for Coach Bo. He is directly responsible for a majority of the current team and the top notch class coming in (on paper and who actually sticks, TBD). He is universally liked by all and as others have said, a great recruiter. I don't believe his duties include hitting coach. I believe those are Coach Sisson's responsibility along with overall game plan. Coach Bo worked a lot with the infielders from what I've seen. All that being said, I'm sure Butch has got a short list of top-notch talent that he will move swiftly on... hopefully after the CWS!!
