Countdown to First Pitch: Brian Celsi
Redshirt freshman Brian Celsi has made a big case to start in left field and at the top of the lineup for the California Golden Bears by the time the Feb. 15 season opener against Michigan rolls around.
Celsi has played both left and center in the fall and early spring, and shows plenty of speed to track balls down in the gap.
Celsi also possesses an above average arm, and is a tenacious defender.
Where the 5-foot-10, 173-pounder really excels, though, is at the dish and on the basepaths.
Celsi is a slap hitter who always manages to make some kind of contact, which can really get under the collar of opposing pitchers.
Celsi is just as irritating on the bases, where his constant chirping and trash talking can throw both defenders and pitchers off their game, allowing him to use his speed to take the extra base or steal a bag.
