Here's video of Erstad talking on the phone with MLB Network's "Hot Stove" series about facing Troy Percival's UC Riverside team, his playing days, How he got to play football at NU and Nebraska's MLB players who frequent Hay Market Park in the off season.

 

I couldn't get the video to embed.

If Schriber can stay healthy, our pitching stays healthy, we should have a pretty good team.  We need a few bats to step up in the line-up.

Injuries starting early this year...Burkhamper likely will not be ready the first weekend due to shoulder soreness.  Not good news considering he has had battles with this in the past and it greatly affected his velocity when he returned.  Was counting on him having a good year for us.  Hopefully they can get him fully healthy for the Big Ten season.

Know anything about Tillotson? Encouraging to see him get some pub.

I believe he was our highest rated recruit.  Will probably live in the mid to upper 80's this year.  Should get quite a few innings this year....possibly a midweek starter?

Yeah im guessing he helps eat up some of the innings King had last season. Can't wait to drink some beers and watch the Frisco Tournament on watchespn.

Hoping for some more consistency this year. Seems like we have had collapses to end the season the past couple years (One much larger than the other).

 

Should be able to get another tourney bid. But let's make some noise this year.

Unbelievably, the weather in Arizona is supposed to stink this weekend.  And of course, in Lincoln it will be high 60's and even in the 70's...go figure.

Yep, pitching wasn't gonna be a huge concern this weekend for me. Good to see the bats get going there.

Yeah that was tough, usually Waldron is nails in that spot. but not today.

He must of missed his spot by a wide margin. This field is 340 to the corners, 380 to the alleys and 420 to center....so that ball had to of been pissed on.
