    I read on Twitter somewhere that this will be two 7-inning scrimmages.

    TV: Ha!
    Radio: Not that I’ve seen, but maybe since we’re at home
    Weather: High of 80 and low of 66. Scattered thunderstorms. 60% chance of precip. Wind ENE @ 8 = blowing in from left field.

    Go Gators!

    Should be a beautiful day for baseball.

    World Series just ended,...just in time for some Gator Fall Ball, eh?

    I’m in town this weekend. As @gtj31 would put it: coming up for the baseball game and while I’m at it, mosey over to the Swamp on Saturday for the football game!

    I hear the view is pretty good from the mound.

    IF there is time for the football game! You plan the weekend around baseball and fill the gaps with other lesser sports.

    Remember, it's the hard that makes it great.

    It is pretty special to now have these games in the fall....right now, the 3 big major sports are “playing” concurrently.

    Moving forward, The UAA might consider a special gator weekend where all 3 can be showcased. Have a football game on a Saturday...homecoming weekend is ideal! Then a hoops exhibition game that night? ( or Sunday...could do both men and women’s, too!) then, Early Sunday: gator baseball fall exhibition game. To me, could even invite an SEC baseball team into town...?

    Strictly fan oriented over competitive but how ‘bout an alumni team/game vs current day Gators?

    I was thinking they had one to kick off fall practice? Does @Gatorgal04 know? Or @GatorLurker ?

    It was actually in February - maybe a week or two prior to the start of the Spring season.

    UF and UGA signed off on a Exhibition baseball game the Friday night before the football game in Jax. They got planning late and ran into a snag when the Tailgate Guys - who do the tents at UF football games - had already leased the outfield of the Jumboshrimp stadium for the weekend. Killed the deal, but it is supposedly agreed to for next Fall. Throw in a DH basketball exhibition (they can't play each other) and you have your wish.

    Just announced that due to expected rain on Sunday this exhibition has been cancelled. Instead, an exhibition with Santa Fe College has been scheduled for 11/9 at 3:30. I’ll start another thread for that one next week.
