    Power Pete!!!

    Here’s hoping the 2020 edition of UF baseball can find a power bat in the middle of the lineup! Maybe one of the incoming Freshman can have an impact like JJ Schwarz had as a freshman 18 homers and a .332 average!!

    Several of the freshman last year put a whole bunch of balls at the warning track with a swing that looked like they were just poking at the ball. I think at least one of them will be swinging through some balls this year and they’ll start getting out. Acton started coming around towards the end of the year, Cali was hot at the beginning...I’d be kinda surprised if one of them didn’t have a big jump this year. Young was pretty solid already last year and if we find another lead off hitter, I think he will bring some more power in the middle of the lineup. Fabian also has a big bat but looked a bit timid at the plate last year, hopefully he will come out of his shell too.

    I’m hoping the incoming freshmen can contribute or I am afraid the gators might have another lackluster year - last years freshman position players were timid at the plate and seemed to get exposed once SEC play started.

    Losing our top upperclassmen bats off last years team is gonna be tough to replace.

    Hoping for some freshman magic!!
