    First Nole game of the season. 11's last time at our ballpark. Let's send him out with a bang!

    TV: SEC Network (Wow, real live TV!)
    Radio: 103.7 FM Listen Live - 103.7 The Gator
    Stats: SIDEARMLiveStats
    Weather: 75 at the start and 68 to finish. 0% chance of precip. Wind ENE @ 9 = blowing in from left field.

    First 500 fans receive a Mike Martin wind-up toy. It takes 10 minutes to go 2 feet. Just kidding, but UF Marketing missed a great opportunity there.

    Starting Gator: TBA
    Starting Earl: TBA

    Go Gators!

    Assuming Dalton is back in, this is how I hope we see the batting order for Tuesday. Nellie is hot, plus he can put down a bunt for Calilao if needed. If Jud keeps it up he might flip places with Dalton. If Dalton is still out then Butler comes in. Crazy to think but if Jud bats 5th then Calilao would see better pitches.
    Young, Jacob .429
    McConnell, Brady .388
    Maldonado, Nelson .359
    Calilao, Kendrick .350
    Dalton, Wil .214
    Langworthy, Austin .206
    Fabian, Jud .345
    Acton, Cory .250
    Smith, Brady .189
    I can't wait for Tuesday and I'll be there early hoping to sit right behind JJH.

    Who will go for the SWAC? I am sure Parrish and Eck were used Friday-Saturday but I didn’t look it up.

    Our pitching is improving, but this will be a bigger test compared to the last few years. We need to strike first and get in their heads early. Go GATORS!!

    Of course....he should then be able to come back and give a couple of innings after an extended delay. Three hours rest for the arm just what Dr Andrews ordered

    I believe Karp has been granted a 3-game waiver. I'm looking for him on Tuesday.

    Go GATORS!

    Come to think of it Karp must be a highly unusual physical specimen—

    “11” was unable to tear Karp’s arm up in 4 years of trying—:devil:

    Does UF have anything special planned for Martin? (In addition to handing him a big L, of course!)

    At the ump meeting, will Sully greet Martin and hand him some sort of commemorative plaque or something?
