The first scrimmage was today
All the pitchers threw one inning except for Keagan. I don’t want to read anything into it
Chase looks like the old Chase
Pellerin and Cellucci are going to give us a lefty righty combo coming out of the pen. Each had 2 K’s and can bring the heat throwing in the mid 90’s
Grant Mathews continues to swing the bat. He had a HR and double
The wind must have been blowing in about 30 mph. Every fly ball was an adventure. Hoese hit a fly to left that ended up dropping behind shortstop
The only positions that have competition are center field and right field. Freshman Hudson Haskin is battling Kobi Owen in center and Grant Mathews and Tyler Heinrichs are battling for right
We definitely have enough catchers this year. Acy Owen will be the starter but Frankie Niemann will push for playing time and the 2 freshmen look solid

According to my stats we had
19 R 21 H. 13 K 10 BB 7 HBP

Every pitcher, except Keagan, threw one inning, some making their first appearance against live hitters, and every position player batted.
At this point in training the hitters are always ahead of the pitchers
Another positive is there was only one wild pitch and two pass balls

If I remember my Baseball days....the pitchers were always ahead of the hitters early in the spring and fall...but then again that was back when they handed U the ball, U were expected to pitch 9 innings...now guys get paid big bucks to play part time

one more rant of Americas pastime.... there are only 5 stats that are relevant in baseball
1 - Single
2 - Stolen Base
3- Walk
4- Strikeout
5 - Pass ball

a HR in one park is a long fly out in another... a foul ball in the stands, is caught for an out in another...a Double in one park is a Single in another...a Triple in one park is a Double in another..and don't get me started with "errors'
until Baseball makes all parks conform to one configuration, all else is just imagination

I wouldn't put a lot of stock in the stats considering every pitcher threw 1 inning.
