AU opens the season Friday with a 3 game set against a team with huge richards. 

First pitch is Friday at 1:00 vs. Longwood.

People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.

I think the Friday game is at 5 snags.

But I plan on hitting one of them this weekend.

I had no idea Glavine's kid was a freshman...

Quote
For Glavine, the 1995 World Series MVP, Game Six of the Fall Classic, when he one-hit Cleveland for eight innings, was one of those "dynamite stuff" nights.

"I had a really good warmup that night," Glavine said. "It was one of those nights where, if I wanted to throw a ball [an inch] outside I did it. If I wanted to throw it that far inside, I did."

Glavine will be a familiar face at Plainsman Park this season. His son, Peyton, is a freshman pitcher. A left-hander, like his dad.

He and Hudson were the guests at the preseason banquet/booster dinner this year. I wanted to go but had something else going on. Was about a week ago. But I'm sure glavine being there had a lot to do with that.

I was flustered by the thought of an entire baseball team with large roosters. 


What? 

Oh yeah, game time is 5:00 p.m.

AU opens the season with a 6-0 shutout of Longwood.  I have no idea about Longwood other than they're from Virginia.  That's it!  But in the day and age of aluminum bats, a shutout against anyone is impressive.  No stats or stories.  Just saw the final.  1-0 for the good guys.

Yeah baby, yeah.

The Tiggers swept Longrichard, getting 2 shutouts in the process.  3-0

They take on Georgia State today and Troy tomorrow.

AU now at 5-0 with a 3-2 win over Georgia State, followed by a 6-5 victory over Troy.

I know the competition hasn't exactly been stellar to this point, at least not household names in college baseball.  But through 5 games, this pitching staff is giving up an average of 1.6 runs per game.

Actually, Troy might be pretty stout.  They were 4-0 coming in and averaging over 10 runs a game. BTW, the Trojans have a 3 game set in the Hassee' with FSU this weekend.  Could be interesting.

Series sweep of Bryant (Who?) over the weekend to go to 8-0.  Still giving up less than 3 runs a game.  At South Alabama Tuesday.

Cool.  Did not see that.  Would love to see them get by South.  They usually don't fare too well over there.
