The baseball team is back in action this weekend as Hofstra drops in for a 3 game set. The team sits at 3-2 now after dropping their first two games. Jake Buchanan was solid Wednesday in 3-1 win versus Elon.
I know I promised a baseball preview last Sunday- work did not cooperate. My apologies if anyone was anxiously awaiting that. Fortunately, this weekend will be light so that will be put together at some point. One of the highlights of the preview will be the expected impact of this year’s freshman class– Pratt Maynard has already been stellar this year. Gilheeney and Sogard will start the first two games this weekend. The third starter is to be announced, although I would guess it will be one of the newcomers. As for the lineup, expect some tinkering through the first 15-20 games. As was the case last year, this squad will probably drop some headscratchers early. Remember not to hit the panic button too early in baseball. A 13-7 start would be fine (I do anticipate better though).
