First off, my deepest apologies for not coming through last night, I didn't run across my notebook until far too late for effective blogging.
Due to rain, Zach's and my managerial debuts were bumped back a day. But as expected we dominated, taking the reigns of the Cream squad and leading them to a 6-2 win over the Crimson.
Back today by popular demand and with some big news: Micah Johnson, middle infielder up at Park Tudor in Indianapolis and widely held as one of the best (if not the best) recruit(s) in the state of Indiana, committed to play baseball for Tracy Smith and the Hoosiers over the weekend.
Johnson was present at Hoosier Hysteria at the behest of one Tom Crean, and whether he handed it over then or before I do not know.
This was passed my way earlier today by our good friend Matt Brady from IU media relations. It's a press release -- which I will copy in its entirety at the end of this post -- anouncing the schedule of the Big Ten/Big East Challenge next spring, in which IU will face West Virginia, Georgetown and South Florida.
There's not a terrible amount of news in this other than that, but I thought y'all would enjoy taking a gander.
Game Times, Locations Announced for Big Ten/BIG EAST Challenge
Got pointed to this by one Matthew Brady at IU media relations -- it's a brief paragraph about the best recruiting class in the Big Ten.
Huge shocker, right?
IU announced today pitcher Matt Bashore and catcher Josh Phegley made the top 50 of Baseball America's list of college's top 100 draft propects for next year.
Just yet another reason to hope February comes soon.
Already reported this over on the Basketblog, but as I was walking through Assembly Hall before IU's exhibition against Anderson tonight, I noticed a couple of familiar faces I just couldn't place.
Nothing like a little press release to break the silence here on Inside Pitch.
Check back in for some possible follow-ups on the five newest Hoosiers.
BLOOMINGTON - Head Coach Tracy Smith and the Indiana baseball staff have signed five players to National Letters of Intent, the team announced today.
As if this were a surprise, it appears Josh Phegley and Matt Bashore are on another award watch list, this time for the Brooks Wallace Player of the Year Award, given by the College Baseball Foundation.
Sorry I didn't have this up sooner, I got tipped off this morning at the IU Athletics gear firesale (where I, of course, made away with much sweet loot). Phegley was actually one of only a handful of watch-listed players named in the College Baseball Foundation, which signals he's probably high on the list.
The full release is below.
Junior catcher Josh Phegley was named to the First Team Preseason All-American list by the National College Baseball Writers Association, the University announced today.
Below is Matt Brady's press release if you want to know more about the award and yet again have Phegley's ridiculous numbers from last season rattled off for you.
But hey, this means February is rolling around soon.
I think I know your guys' answers, but are y'all excited for the new season?
What are the aspects of the team that have you the most excited?
Got word this afternoon that the Big Ten has decided to move its conference tournament to a neutral site, beginning this year in Columbus, Ohio.
I come to you now not with any news releases or interesting tidbits, sorry to disappoint.
No, tonight I blog to you with a sad-hearted but fond goodbye.
In a move that should surprise few, Andrew Means has declared for the 2009 NFL Draft. Means, a redshirt junior and former U center fielder now in the Cincinnati Reds' organization, came back to IU for one more year of football.
There were many last spring who said quietly that Means could have a professional future in football to go along with the obvious one in baseball, and it appears he will test those waters between now and April.
Means has a three-year contract with the Reds, but it won't prevent him from playing professional football to my knowledge should the opportunity arise.
Just when I thought I was out, they pull me right back in. Got confirmed today what I've been hearing for awhile: Ben Greenspan has officially been named the hitting coach for the IU baseball team.
Hello devoted followers of the IU baseball team!
With this being our first post to "Inside Pitch," I just wanted to introduce myself (Greg Rosenstein) and my co-beat writer (DeAntae Prince). DeAntae is from Chicago and has covered men's soccer, wrestling and softball for the IDS.
IU head coach Tracy Smith has made another addition to his staff, which was made up of only him and IU assistant coach Ty Neal two weeks ago.
Matt Hayes was announced today as IU's new volunteer assistant coach.
Last week, Rivals and Yahoo! Sports came out with their preseason predictions for the Big Ten Conference, listing IU as the "Team on the Rise" and Josh Phegley as their "Top Hitter."
Today a new preseason prediction was released from Baseball America, found here.
National writer Aaron Fitt believes the Hoosiers will take the top spot in the Big Ten and advance to the College Station, Texas, Regional as the No.
Although the still standing snow wouldn't suggest so, the start of the IU baseball season is right around the corner.
The Hoosiers held their first official practice at Mellencamp Pavilion on Super Bowl Sunday.
As you might know by now, IU outfielder Chris Hervey has his own blog on Ping!Baseball.com.
DeAntae and I just got back from the team's first scrimmage today and wanted to let you know some of the highlights.
