I thought I should start anew thread and devote it to baseball. I had a chance to sit down with coach Russo. He is very engaging and is looking forward to meeting some of the people on this board. Found out that our #1 starter D"Errico is out for about two weeks with elbow problem. They thought is was worse but he should be back after the GA State series. In his place will be Andrew Barbarino. This year even though we have 4 seniors on the roster only 3 we will lose to graduation. The 4th is Perez who is getting a medical redshirt this year. He was our power hitter last year and will return to 3rd base next year. We stole 8 bases against Marsit yesterday and continue to lead the NCAA in stolen bases. We are also now 4th in doubles.
I spoke to him at length about the improvement to field. Finally be concerns about the distance to the fences are no longer as they moved centerfield back to 400 feet and right center 410. The old distance I had always said was 375 to center but found out it was only 368 feet. We now can recruit pitchers better. He plans on getting more California recruits as he has connections out on the west coast. If you havent seen this team play yet come on out and you will see the way it was meant to be played. Small ball, hit and run and doubles and triple galore.
Of all the things I have lost, I miss my mind the most!
