Hoosiers send out first pitch in 2010 against No. 23 San Diego

·

The IU baseball team will be tested quickly on how well it has restocked and reloaded for the 2010 season Friday. The Hoosiers open play a long way from home with a four-game series at the University of San Diego. The schedule has the Hoosiers playing one game Friday, a doubleheader Saturday and closing out the series with a single game on Sunday, all at USD’s Cunningham Stadium.

Most collegiate coaches would consider themselves in a rebuilding stage after losing 11 letterwinners from the previous year, but not IU coach Tracy Smith. As the Hoosiers get ready to fly west to battle No. 23 San Diego for its opening weekend matchup, Smith must decide between now and conference play who’s going to fill the void left by six starting position players and two of his three starting pitchers from 2009.

Smith waits on pitching decisions

With the 2010 season just two weeks away, the team has been in full practice mode, taking batting practice and running situational drills inside Mellencamp Pavilion every afternoon since Monday.

Losing seven players from last year’s squad, the IU baseball team certainly needed to reload in a quick fashion if it wanted to improve on last year’s Big Ten Tournament championship. Fortunately, it didn’t have to look too far to find a talented new pitcher for the 2010 campaign.

Hoosiers ready to defend title

Coming off a 2009 season with arguably IU’s most talented baseball team in its century-old history, the Hoosiers are going to have to get creative. IU coach Tracy Smith enters 2010 trying to fill a void left from losing three first-round picks and seven total players in the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft.

Crawford, Schutz sign contracts

·

Two more members of the IU baseball team have begun professional sports careers. Junior outfielders Evan Crawford and Kipp Schutz elected to sign last week with the San Francisco Giants and Baltimore Orioles, respectively, ending on their IU careers and heading to the Minor Leagues.

Former IU pitcher Eric Arnett has agreed to contractual terms with the Milwaukee Brewers, the team that took him in the first round of the Major League Baseball Draft on June 9.

O’Gara said a regional scout for the Marlins had been in touch with him the day before regarding where Florida might take him. So he wasn’t all that surprised when the call came in, making him the sixth of seven IU Hoosiers picked in the 2009 Major League Baseball Draft.

KIPP SCHUTZ

·

Schutz actually only played two full seasons in Bloomington, after his freshman campaign was cut off after seven games by a shoulder injury


JOSH PHEGLEY

·

Phegley came to IU with high expectations as the 2006 Indiana Mr. Baseball.


EVAN CRAWFORD

·

Crawford is probably one of the highest-potential players in the draft. He’s got several tools – great speed, a strong arm and a solid bat.


MATT BASHORE

·

Bashore had perhaps the best draft prospects of any Hoosier coming into this season, but a slow start in the non-conference schedule caused him to slip.


ERIC ARNETT

·

Arnett’s draft stock soared after a senior season that saw him notch a 12-2 record with a 2.50 ERA. His long 6-5 frame and athleticism tantalized scouts, vaulting him into the first round.


Five Hoosiers, Eric Arnett, Josh Phegley, Matt Bashore, Evan Crawford and Kipp Schutz, were all picked in the MLB draft Tuesday through Wednesday. Arnett, Phegley and Bashore were all Top-50 recruits.
