Lincoln – The Nebraska baseball team opened fall practice on Thursday afternoon with a three-hour workout at Hawks Field.
Head Coach Darin Erstad met with the media before the start of today’s practice and discussed what he wants to see this fall.
“Our older guys know what we expect out of them, the pace we want to play at,” Erstad said. “We have a lot of versatile pieces. We want everyone to complete and we’ll see how things fall into place.”
The Huskers will practice over the next six weeks, before ending the fall season with their annual Red-White Series. The three-game series is set for Oct. 15-17, with game times yet to be announced.
The Huskers return a solid nucleus from a team that was one win away from winning the Big Ten Tournament last season. The Huskers fell to Indiana in the bottom of the ninth of the Big Ten title game to end the season, while the Hoosiers went on to play in the College World Series.
Competition should be high during the fall, as 18 new players are on the fall roster.
