That Time of Year

Rejoice baseball fans, it's that time of year. With the words "pitchers and catchers" report, we know that MLB spring training is near. In Bloomington, the Indiana baseball Hoosiers got the 2010 campaign underway with the start of official practice on Monday. In a little more than two weeks the Hoosiers will open the season with a 4 game series at the University of San Diego February 19-21.

I've been somewhat irregular with my posts since the conclusion of the 2009 season, but with the new season fast approaching, I will be posting on a much more regular basis. I am also hoping to provide several different season previews/outlooks before things get underway on 2/19.

While the odds are certainly stacked against the Hoosiers heading into 2010 given all that was lost from last year's team, I am excited about this year's team and believe they can prove all the doubters wrong. Go Hoosiers!


  1. I find it utterly appalling that the NCAA has "official" practice a mere 2 weeks before the start of the season...C'mon Man! Yes, I know all teams have ways around that with "captains'practices" etc, etc...its really stupid...and while I'm on it...allowing the start of the season earlier...really stupid. But those are just my absolutely correct opinions.

  2. Yes, I guess you can add that to the list of things the NCAA can't seem to get right:

    1) Considering expanding the NCAA tourney
    2) The NCAA basketball one-and-done rule
    3) The BCS system
    4) and the list goes on....

  3. When will the media guide be posted on the web site? I'm anxious to read about this year's Big 10 champs!

  4. I just want to say that i really enjoy reading your blog and that you do a great job all year. I will admitt i am a Buckeye fan but i really enjoy your awesome coverage of the Hoosiers baseball program. Keep up the good work and thanks for all you do for Big Ten baseball. I also look forward to seeing the Hossiers in Columbus in early April.
