Baseball Practice Start Adjusted
Friday was the first day in which baseball practice could begin by NCAA rule, and Alabama was able to get started. But instead of practice at Sewell-Thomas Stadium, Bama began with a 90-minute workout in the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility.
"We were able to get done what we needed to get done despite the weather," Alabama first-year Coach Mitch Gaspard said. "The energy level was good and we got a lot accomplished. Now we need to take that onto the field for our first two intrasquad games."
The team worked on infield/outfield defense and base running and hit in the indoor cages as rain and cold weather forced the team indoors for its first official practice.
Alabama was scheduled to hold its first intrasquad games Saturday and Sunday, but inclement weather has altered the schedule. The Crimson Tide will practice in the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility again Saturday and will hold its first two preseason scrimmages at Sewell-Thomas Stadium on Sunday and Monday.
The team will practice Sunday at 1 p.m., with an eight-inning scrimmage set for 2 p.m. On Monday, the team will practice at 2 p.m., with an eight-inning scrimmage to begin at 3 p.m.
The Crimson Tide's season opener is set for Saturday, Feb. 20, when Alabama hosts the South Alabama Jaguars at 2:05 p.m. at Sewell-Thomas Stadium. Season tickets are available by calling 1-800-TIDETIX.
