Alabama will have scrimmages on both Saturday and Sunday

Practices and scrimmages in Sewell-Thomas open to fans

Although baseball is known as “the summer game,” in college it has to begin in winter, and Alabama will get started Friday with its first preseason practice. And Bama won’t be just easing into practice. Following Friday’s first day, the Crimson Tide will have scrimmages on Saturday and Sunday.
As was the case in the fall practices under new Alabama Coach Greg Goff, practices and scrimmages will be open to fans.
Friday’s practice will officially start the Tide’s full-squad preparations leading up to the Feb. 17 season opener with Presbyterian College. The team will begin work at 2 p.m. CST Friday. Alabama will then take part in practices followed by a scrimmage on both Saturday and Sunday, with each scrimmage scheduled for a 2 p.m. CST start.
All practice times are subject to change depending on weather conditions for the day. Scrimmages are subject to change, with the amount of innings and pitches per game is to be determined as spring practice progresses. Dates and times for the upcoming week of practice and scrimmage can be found on RollTide.com each Monday.
Sewell-Thomas Stadium will be open to fans who wish to watch the practice and scrimmage dates. Fans are asked to enter Sewell-Thomas Stadium through the main gate (Gate 3) located directly behind home plate. Once inside, fans are encouraged to stay in the lower bowl seating area, as access to the upper levels of the stadium is restricted.
