Countdown to First Pitch

In the first entry of our video series leading up to the Feb. 15 season opener for Cal baseball against the visiting Michigan Wolverines, we take a look at the fall ball highlights of Devon Rodriguez.

Leading off in our series of videos from fall ball, as we count down to first pitch on Feb. 15, is 2011 California baseball hero Devon Rodriguez, returning to first base -- and the middle of the order -- after a knee injury sidelined him for much of 2012.

Preseason practice for the Golden Bears starts on Jan. 22, with a season-opening three-game set at Evans Diamond against Michigan kicking off on Feb. 15.

The Pac-12 baseball season will open with a bang for Cal, as the Bears host USC under the lights for the first time ever on March 28.

This video is free, to give the public a little taste of what's to come, as we will feature a new player every few days on for our paying subscribers.
