We have 4 homeruns all season...and three of them came this week, in the same game, by the same player.

I can't wait to get you guys in Tomlinson and let you experience the Spring Winds. Try hitting one out then.

That's Charles Barkley terrible right there.

Please elaborate on this Spring Wind phenomenon.

Sent from my XT907 using Tapatalk

In Arkansas, every Spring the winds shift to come out of the South, bringing in all the Warm Moist air out of the Gulf Of Mexico. It brings in warm temperatures (and Severe Thunderstorms...but that's another story).

Our park is built out in a clearing, with no wind protection. That means, every spring during baseball season, opposition comes into our park and finds a steady wind at 15-20 mph blowing straight in from Center Field.

It renders us unable to recruit a power hitter. You play here, you better know how to play small ball... because odds are, you're going to deal with the wind at least once or twice in a 3 game set.


Well perhaps, but one would think pitchers would love to pitch there.

Our last three Friday Night starters were drafted in the top 11 rounds. It's very easy to recruit pitching. Unfortunately, there are only two major league pitchers from Arkansas. One of whom has a nephew pitching for us now...both went to Fayetteville.

That's where the talent coming out of Arkansas gets us. We end up recruiting out of state a lot. And with baseball, that can get costly for the player unless they earn a scholarship.

Disagree completely with this statement. If good pitchers were easy to recruit, ASU would have more championships under its belt! Pitchers that have power arms with secondary pitches don't sign out of high school with Sun Belt programs. You can sign good pitchers and develop them, but they usually aren't throwng in the 90's plus. Most of the time Sun Belt programs get power arms from the JC's are transfers, but you don't have those arms in your program longer then a year or two. Good pitchers don't grow on vines.

RE: SBC Baseball 3/18-19/2014
I would not agree that it is easy to recruit outstanding pitching. If a Sun Belt team has 2 really good starting pitchers they are ahead of the curve. Well maybe I should speak only for Ga. Southern. Here it is a challenge to get great pitchers in abundance. We have had pitchers drafted in the top rounds in the last 5 years, but it is always a struggle to put together a staff with numerous quality arms. Last year (the first losing record we have had here in 20 years) we were short of pitchers bigtime. This year we went the JUCO route and have some more quality pitchers, but for us pitching has always been sort of an achilles heel. We can recruit hitters and we have alot of very good hitters this year. Pitching is more hit and miss.

All three of our weekend starters this year were recruited as Freshman. We haven't started a JUCO pitcher on a weekend in 3 years.

Heck, of our top 10 pitchers on staff this year. 7 were recruited out of High school. Three are True Freshman, Two are Sophomores. Only one is a senior.

You'd be better off using Tennessee. That's where several of our latest top group of pitchers have come from.

The Arkansas kids take longer to develop. Many end up in the pen.

So, do you have great pitching? I haven't seen it consistently in the ASU program. So going back to your statement, good pitchers are not easy to find. At our level, development is the key ingredient.

We lost 5-4 to Clemson today to split the midweek series. We are 17-5 right now and Appalachian St. comes in this weekend for the SoCon series. At worst we need to win 2 of 3 and a sweep would be nice.

USA leads the all-time series 24-14 over LSU. Hopefully we can add to that tonight.

Going into the top of the second, 0-0.

USA with 5 runners LOB through the first 4 innings won't cut it against LSU.

LSU leads 1-0 going into the top of the 5th.

USA leads the series with the Cajuns 58-38.

It's not looking good for USA against LSU. In the bottom of the 8th LSU leads 9-0. USA has committed 4 errors.

South Al always had a solid baseball program.04-cheers

Seemed like the Cajuns threw about 10 pitchers tonight. Don't know if that was due to necessity or by design. Perhaps one of you Cajun fans closer to the action could fill in the blank for me?

1. Our starters on the weekends have thrown complete games or have gone far so our bullpen has not had a ton of work.
2. A few pitchers are getting healthy and need innings
3. We have had 2 midweek games postponed (even less inning for work)
4. With milhorn out another week and boutte questionable Sunday, need everyone available for the weekend...got everyone a little work

RE: SBC Baseball 3/18-19/2014
ASU couldn't hold a 3-1 lead, losing 4-3 to Ole Miss on some very questionable calls late.

Would someone please explain to me, why Eric Prater, a known Razorback fan who has discussed publicly with others how much he hates ASU, is umpiring one of our baseball games? That is the most insane thing I have ever seen. He's behind two very questionable calls, and no one ever thought it probably wouldn't be a good idea to appoint a Razorback fan to umpire an ASU/Ole Miss game?

Oh well. We did play well. Ole Miss bullpen is very good. 3 game set at UTA this weekend.
