Take me out to the ball game

The Alabama baseball team begins their season tonight at 6:30. They are facing the Cal Poly Mustangs in the first game of a two game set. The second game will be Saturday at 2 pm. One thing the Crimson Tide baseball team has this season is experience. Alabama’s projected opening day starting lineup has combined for 451 career starts, including veteran players Alex Avila (112 games started), Ryan Rhoden (89), Matt Bentley (76), Kent Matthes (64), Jake Smith (39) and Brandon May (41). Jeff Texada (26) and Will Stroup (4) have combined for 30 career starts, while true freshmen Josh Rutledge and Ross Wilson will make their collegiate debuts in the 2008 season opener. Lets hope the team can put all the off season drama of Coach Wells leaving and them coming back behind them.
