The baseball Tigers open the season Feb. 8 at 3 p.m. when they entertain the VCU Rams at newly expanded Plainsman Park.

This is a view of the left field stands taken from the right field stands. Both are nearing completion with only the bullpens in doubt about being ready for the season opener.

Infielder Tug Hewlitt has been one of the more consistent hitters this spring and should challenge for playing time at both shortstop and second base.

Looking for power at the plate, the Tigers will turn to Montgomery native Bobby Huddleston this spring to deliver. The catcher will likely split time behind the plate with Trent Pratt and DH the other days. He has been Auburn's most effective hitter to date this spring.

True freshman Reid Price has been a pleasant surprise for coach Steve Renfroe and staff this spring. Looking for southpaws to compliment the strong right-handed influence on the staff, Price may get a look at long relief early in the season.

Silky smooth fielder Chuck Jeroloman has been wowing his coaches and teammates alike this spring with his solid glove and strong arm from the shortstop position. He, along with Hewlitt and Jonathan Schuerholz will vie for the two middle infield spots heading into the season opener against Virginia Commonwealth Feb. 8.
