BREAKING: The @NCAA Division I Baseball Committee, as expected, has passed legislation to move to a lower-seamed baseball. #CollegeBaseball

Committee Chair Dennis Farrell: “The committee was very concerned with the diminishing offensive production at the #CWS. That started this."

As completely expected, and as we reported from talking to Damani Leech, it goes into effect in 2015. #CollegeBaseball

Article on NCAA.com

quote:

A survey conducted by the American Baseball Coaches Association showed 87 percent of the respondents wanted to change to the flat-seamed baseball. Around 80 percent of the nearly 300 Division I baseball coaches responded to the survey.

The coaches were also asked questions pertaining to game excitement and home runs. Seventy-two percent thought the game needed more excitement and 69 percent believe Division I college baseball needs more home runs.

Day 24: Junior #13 Brady Domangue



LSU Profile

Brady is yet another transfer from LSU Eunice, a junior college that seems to be a farm club for LSU. PM/Dunn knew they wanted Brady early, signing him in February of last year.

2013 Season (@LSUE):
quote:

14-2 record in 2013 with a 1.34 ERA, five complete games and three shutouts; fired 114 IP with 118 Ks and 32 BB ... NJCAA All-American Pitcher ... NJCAA World Series All-Tournament Team ... Broke the LSU-Eunice strikeout record and ERA record ... 8-1 record in 2012 with a 3.48 ERA in 77.2 innings; fired 97 strikeouts
-----------------------------------------------------------

Day 25: Junior #33 Henri Faucheux



LSU Profile

Henri has made his way around college baseball starting with ULL as a freshmen, then Shelton State as a sophomore, and now at LSU for his Junior season. He's a LHP who tops out in the upper 80s on his FB with a big looping curve. He'll need to develop a strong change-up as a third pitch if he wants to max out his effectiveness.

2013 Season (@Shelton State):
quote:

Posted an 8-3 record and a 3.20 ERA in 2013 for Shelton State ... Earned 2013 JUCO All-Conference honors
------------------------------------------------------------

Day 26: Junior #17 Jared Foster



LSU Profile

Jared has been Mr. Versatility. He came to LSU as a dual-sport athlete, a QB for football and an infielder for baseball. But he chose to stick to baseball after his first football season, and has played multiple positions in the infield and outfield. He hits for average and has one of the strongest arms on the team.

2013 Season:
quote:

Played in 42 games (15 starts in right field), batting .359 (23-for-64) with two doubles, two homers, 12 RBI, 19 runs and three stolen bases … played in 18 SEC regular-season games and batted .346 (9-for-26) with one double, one homer, four RBI and seven runs … launched two-run homer in opening game of NCAA Baton Rouge Regional versus Jackson State (May 31) – the sixth-inning dinger gave the Tigers a 10-2 lead in an eventual 11-7 victory … named to SEC All-Tournament team after hitting .667 (4-for-6) in three games with one RBI, four runs scored, two steals, a .778 on-base percentage and an outfield assist at home plate in the tournament championship game vs. Vanderbilt (May 26) … doubled and collected two RBI vs. Ole Miss (May 18) … hit .455 (5-for-11) in series vs. South Carolina (April 26-28), recording a .500 on-base percentage … launched solo homer at Mississippi State on March 17 … 2-for-5 vs. Sacred Heart on March 6 with one double, one RBI and two runs scored.
-----------------------------------------------------

Day 29: Junior #2 Tyler Moore



LSU Profile

Tyler is a local product who's been able to play multiple positions, mainly 3B, 1B, and C. He's had some of the most clutch at bats the past two years as a Tiger. This year, he is likely to see more consistent playing time being PM's first choice behind the plate.

2013 Season:
quote:

Played in 48 games (20 starts), batting .281 (27-for-96) with nine doubles, one triple, 12 RBI and 12 runs … started 10 games at DH, six at first base, three at third base and one at catcher … batted .304 (7-for-23) in 14 SEC regular-season games with two doubles and two RBI … lined game-winning double in bottom of 8th inning of Game 1 in Super Regional vs. Oklahoma; the RBI gave Tigers a 1-0 lead in an eventual 2-0 victory … provided dramatic two-strike, two-out game-tying double in the top of the ninth inning in an SEC Tournament elimination game versus Alabama (May 24); LSU scored another run in the inning and went on to a 3-2 victory over the Crimson Tide … provided a key two-out, pinch-hit double that kept 16th inning alive at Alabama (April 20), allowing LSU to score three runs in 11-8 victory … 3-for-4 at Louisiana-Lafayette (Feb. 26) with one double, one triple, three RBI and one run scored.

Day 27: Junior #24 Cody Glenn



LSU Profile

Cody is a LHP who was excellent as the 3rd starter in last year's rotation toward the middle-end of the season. He's not a big strikeout pitcher, but relies on a deceptive slider and decent change-up to get mostly ground balls. Look for him to remain a weekend starter in either the Saturday or Sunday roll.

2013 Season:
quote:

Started 15 games on the mound, posting a 7-3 mark and a 2.68 ERA in 84 innings with 17 walks and 38 strikeouts … 3-2 record with a 3.75 ERA in SEC regular-season games (nine starts), recording 13 walks and 21 strikeouts in 50.1 innings … began the season by working 20.1 straight innings without allowing an earned run; allowed first earned run in second inning vs. Washington (March 10) … posted win in LSU's SEC Tournament opener vs. Alabama (May 22), limiting Tide to no runs on five hits in seven innings with two strikeouts … earned win over Ole Miss (May 16), limiting the Rebels to one run on eight hits in seven innings with no walks and two strikeouts … defeated Florida on May 2, limiting the Gators to one earned run on five hits in 6.2 innings with one walk and six strikeouts … excellent no-decision outing at Alabama (April 21), allowing just one earned run on four hits in career-high eight innings with no walks and four strikeouts … defeated Kentucky (April 7), limiting Wildcats to one run on six hits in six innings with two walks and one strikeout … worked 7.2 innings on March 24 to earn a win over Auburn, allowing two runs on six hits with two walks and two strikeouts … limited Nicholls State to no runs on three hits in seven innings to earn March 3 win; fired five strikeouts with one walk … defeated UL-Lafayette (Feb. 26), limiting the Cajuns to no runs on three hits in seven innings with no walks and one strikeout.
-------------------------------------------------------------

Day 28: Junior #20 Conner Hale



LSU Profile

Conner is a transfer corner infielder who can hit well and hit with some power. He has played 3B the last two years in Junior College but is most likely to get playing time at 1B for the tigers.

Prior to LSU (@State College of Florida):
quote:

Hit .366 in 2013 (.402 in conference) with 83 hits, 18 doubles, four triples, one homer and 65 RBI ... Named Conference Player of the Year, 1st team all-conference and 1st team all-state ... Hit .330 in 2012 with 69 hits, 12 doubles, two triples, 40 RBI; named 1st team all-conference ... Senior year in high school - led country with .505 batting average, 55 hits, 37 RBI, 11 doubles, and six homers

Day 30: Junior #10 Aaron Nola



LSU Profile

Aaron is another local Baton Rouge product who has been stellar on the mound for LSU. He enters his 3 season as the ace of the staff and will anchor the rotation on Friday nights. At first being known as Austin's little brother, Aaron has set himself apart and made a name for himself in his own right.

Day 31: Junior #49 Zac Person



LSU Profile

Zac is a LHP who comes over from LSU-Eunice along with Brady Domangue. His fastball reaches the upper 80s, and he has good deception with his curveball. He's another new face who will be relied upon immediately out of the bullpen.

Prior to LSU (@LSUE):

Day 32: Junior #5 Chris Sciambra



LSU Profile

Chris has been an on-again/off-again starter for the past two years. Some may remember he had a frightening head injury which ended his freshman season after a hot start. He'll continue to push for playing time in an extremely crowded outfield.

2013 Season:
quote:

Played in 46 games (23 starts), batting .265 (26-for-98) with five doubles, one triple, nine RBI and 22 runs … started nine games in right field, nine games in center field, two games in left field and three games at DH … delivered pinch-hit, game-winning single in top of 10th inning of SEC Tournament championship game versus Vanderbilt (May 26) as LSU claimed a 5-4 victory and its four tournament title in six seasons … collected two doubles and scored two runs in LSU win over Washington on March 10 … 4-for-4 with a double and one run scored in LSU's 2013 season opener vs. Maryland (Feb. 15).
--------------------------------------------------------------

Day 33: Junior #22 Kade Scivicque



LSU Profile

Kade is another junior college transfer at the catcher position. But he was actually on PM's radar out of high school as the Class B MVP in 2011. He's had some time to develop and is in a close battle for the starting spot.

Prior to LSU:
quote:

2013 1st Team MACJC All State and the League’s Defensive Player of the Year ... Batted .321 in 2013 with four homers, 12 doubles, 37 RBI and a .991 fielding percentage ... 2012 1st team MACJC All State – batted .333 with five homers, 27 RBI and 10 doubles ... 2012 and 2013 – received NJCAA Award for Exemplary Academic Achievements
--------------------------------------------------------

Day 34: Senior #29 Nate Fury



LSU Profile

Nate is a RHP who walked-on last fall after stints at Tulane and Delgado CC. He's the younger brother of former LSU infielder Matt Fury. He underwent surgery in September due to pain between his shoulder and neck and is currently rehabbing. It is still unknown if he'll be able to contribute this season.

2013 Season:
quote:

Appeared in 20 games out of the bullpen, posting a 2-1 mark and a 2.95 ERA in 18.1 innings with four walks and 16 strikeouts … made five appearances in SEC regular-season games, allowing five hits in 6.2 scoreless innings with one walk and six strikeouts … made three appearances in LSU's postseason games, allowing two hits in 2.2 shutout innings with one walk and five strikeouts … earned SEC Tournament relief win over Alabama (May 24), firing a perfect 8th inning with two strikeouts … excellent relief outing April 20 in LSU's 16-inning win at Alabama -- pitched the 11th through 14th innings and blanked the Crimson Tide, allowing just two singles with no walks and a career-best five strikeouts … played at second base in regular-season finale versus Ole Miss (May 18), going 2-for-4 with a double and recording two put-outs and three assists.

Yep. The anticipation is part of the fun though. Similarly, I enjoy Saturdays leading up to kickoff as much as I enjoy the game itself. Those hours of building suspense are second only the victory celebration.
