    It was a solid opening night for our baseball Gators. Sproat actually pitched a lot better than his line shows IMHO.

    Defense was solid and the offense was really good. I saw not just good contact but aggressively hitting it where it was pitched. And well worth noting—the new guys in the lineup looked like they belonged there!

    Now let’s strap it on and get after’em again today Gators!

    The last practice I was at on Monday the hitters had a bunch of doubles. I guess it shouldn't be any surprise at all the extra base hits we had last night. If the wind blows in our guys will need to focus on liners in the gaps instead of their launch angles. With CSU starting a lefty pitcher today, I'm hoping Sully lets Shelnut start again at DH to see how he approaches a LHP.

    I'd like to see Jac toy with the idea of going with the pitch, just to see what happens.

    Oh he can. In spring practices Sully kept the shift on when Cags was at bat. Cags was routinely able to find a hit or two thru the left side. Plus he hit a few doubles to the wall in LCF in the gap.

    A wide strike zone will help Waldrep more than most pitchers. He has a variety of pitches that circle the plate. A tight zone will result in more walks which will put more pressure on Riopelle. I expect CSU to run on Riopelle any chance they get early.

    Ol’blue last night was about as tight on the plate as I’ve seen in a while.

    I know that you’ve got to have a smart TV-we’ve got the ROKU stick with ESPN on it-go there and move to ESPN+ and follow the prompts is the best I can do. You might check with @WESGATORS or @Gatorgal04 —they are much more tech savvy.

    Several surprises with the lineup today. Fabian is at first and Shelnut is at third. Hopefully Gal will post the rest soon.

    Didn’t really expect to see Cags on 1st base today with tomorrow being his day on the bump

    Watching Shelnut throw to first with Fabian having to scoop a few might get interesting. Halter fires them across the diamond but Shelnut has to factor for the drop off on his throws.
