    Gators travel to JAX Tuesday night. JU started the 2020 season hosting West Virginia. They lost 3-0, won 4-3 and lost 2-1. Either good pitching or marginal hitting all around.

    TV: ESPN + (Subscription service)
    Radio: 98.1 FM / 850 AM Listen Live - ESPN 98.1 FM - 850 AM WRUF
    Weather: 75 at the start and 70 to end. 40% chance of precip first hour and 35% after that. Wind SSE @ 5 = breeze coming in from right/center field.

    Starting Gator: Hunter Barco
    Starting Earl: TBD

    Go Gators!

    Got a feeling Barco will start on the mound. Little hometown pressure. Gotta love it.

    Good thing for our guys to get experience on the road early in the schedule—let’s go over there ready to play Gator Baseball!

    *****Notice to all Gator batters!*****
    Do not draw a line in clay even if you are marking the batters box. Jax umpires are known to take offense.

    I’m guessing that they’ve upped the strength of the EGO pills the umpires take—like that was really needed.....

    Man, I used to love these Tuesday night games being on tv because there is basically nothing on television anyway.

    Three things that you will never change..
    1. The day you're born.
    2. The day you die.
    3. An umpires mind at the plate by arguing with him.

    Even if you get hosed, there's no sense in arguing with the umpire... Let manager or bench coach do it for you.

    Because if you do argue or even show disagreement with his call, providing you don't get sent to the showers, you just earned a called strike at your next at bat before you even make your next trip to the plate.

    One of the funniest things that I ever saw was in a high school game and the catcher was at the plate. He fouled off the first pitch and the next two pitches were chin-high fastballs that the ump called strikes... Absolutely terrible calls.. Catcher never looks back, never says a word, but on the way back to the dugout, he had this Cheshire cat smile, and had about a 10 second meeting with his pitcher while strapping up.

    First pitch comes in, chin-high fastball... Catcher goes for the ball but "misses" it... And hits the umpire square in the chest and knocked him for a loop!!!

    He didn't call another high ball out of the zone a strike the rest of the night.... Priceless!!!

    Hopefully everyone remembers Wil Dalton getting sent to showers last year when we went to JU. I remember the guys on the radio were shocked he got hosed by the bat line.
