It’s Green/White World Series time.
The annual intrasquad scrimmage wraps up fall practices for the Niners as they prepare for their return to Conference USA baseball in the spring. Things get underway Thursday night at 6pm, followed by games on Friday (5pm) and Saturday (1pm). Senior captains will select who they want on their teams and both sides will go at it in a few days.
This year’s edition will be without some key components from last year’s A-10 runner ups. In addition to the graduating seniors, Justin Seager and Tyler Barnette made the decision to forgo their final years of collegiate eligibility and enter the MLB draft. Seager was picked by the Seattle Mariners and made an immediate impact with their Short-Season A ball affiliate in Everett, WA, while Barnette was a Chicago White Sox selection and saw time with their A-ball team in Bristol, VA. But Brad Elwood, the second-leading hitter from last year, and Brett Lang, who had a strong debut in his redshirt freshman season in 2013, head up the returning players.
