Fall Ball notes
November 7, 2004
Ok, due to some minor health issues, my fall
reports haven't been very detailed.
That's going to change, and here are some random
thoughts, and then a detailed report of Sunday's
game. I will post pictures later in
Emaus seems to the real deal.
Hits galore, excellent fielder. In
my opinion, best of the newbies - so far.
Everett, the kid from Houston is
another outstanding shortstop. He should
have no problem stepping into the shoes vacated
by Andy, G, and Tommy. I don't
know how they are going to find playing time for
him, as it looks like Tommy's a lock at SS, and
Emaus is a lock at 3rd. 2nd base seems to
be occupied by Holland, and Guidry.
McFadden seems to have a lock on
one of the outfield positions. He hasn't put on
any batting clinics, but he is definitely going
to be a power hitter. In the
past few scrimmages, he has been playing in
left, with Bogey in center, and Barket in right.
I don't know if that's how we will start in
February, but it's a good guess.
Connick, Barnett, Garrett, Young, and
Morgan have all spent some time on the
mound. Morgan has been used
primarily in a closing role. Connick
is your typical crafty lefty that will depend on
location, and great breaking stuff.
Barnett and Garrett pitched for 6 innings each
on Saturday, and did an ok job. Young
pitched both Saturday and Sunday, and might be
used in a setup role.
Powell and Riser have been
alternating in the outfield. Powell
is a Freshman from Newman, and Riser is a
transfer from Pearl River CC.
