The spring and summer seasons are still months away, as we are just now in the heart of fall.  This is the best time however to check up on one of the sports teams: baseball.  The Baseball team has been on the grind since the second week of the new school year.  With 5:45 a.m. weightlifting, intense individual practices, and 3-4 hour practices, these men are putting in the work.

Coach Chad Porter is now back for his first full season as head coach of the Scots, after returning to claim the position from Hall of Famer, Bob Crawford.  Following a rough season last year, Coach Porter went out and searched for the best young talent he could find.  That led to the arrival of 25 freshmen on campus.  There are only 11 returners and transfers which means this team is going to be very young but also well experienced.  The future looks bright as this team looks to build for the future and return the club to real contenders in the GMAC.

The Baseball team has scrimmages coming up this fall.  They will take on Marietta College and Salem International in the upcoming weeks.  This will give these youngsters some much needed experience to build on for next season.  Coach Porter has always been a successful, winning coach and looks to mold this team into a winner as well.  Players are bonding well and really playing well together.  If everyone continues to buy in to the goal of success, the sky is the limit for this squad.
