Diamond Cuts

This past week I have given you information on the 3 other teams in the NCAA Regional besides Georgia. Georgia's first game will be on Friday at 7:00 pm et vs Sacred Heart. But before you go to the game, here is a little more on the Georgia baseball team.

The Georgia baseball team is 41-19 this season. This is the 5th time that Georgia has had over 40 wins in a season. The previous 4 times, the Bulldogs advanced to the College World Series.

Georgia is 23-9 at home this season. They are 7-2 all-time at Foley Field during the NCAA regionals.

Overall the Bulldogs are 17-8 all-time in the NCAA Regionals. This is the 3rd time Coach David Perno's Bulldogs have advanced to the NCAA Regionals. He is 5-3 in the NCAA Regionals including 3-1 at home.

Of the 3 other teams in the regional, Georgia has only faced Florida State. They are 2-1 against the Seminoles defeating them in the Super Regional back in 2001. The Dawgs have not yet faced Jacksonville nor Sacred Heart.

The largest crowd ever to see a game at Foley Field happened in 2001. It was during the Super Regional as Georgia hosted Florida State with an attendance of 4,290. Georgia won 8-7. Go Dawgs!

Many of the players on Georgia's current squad have played in the NCAA Regionals before. Most of them in 2004.

Bobby Felmy batted .353 with 2 home runs and 4 rbi.

Jason Jacobs batted .333 with 2 home runs and 5 rbi.

Josh Morris batted .429 with 4 runs scored.

Kyle Keen had his career-best 4 rbi game in one of the regional games.

Matthew Dunn played in the 2004 regionals as a member of the Virginia Cavaliers.

Both Mickey Westphal and Jason Fellows were red-shirting in 2004. However both played in the 2002 regionals. As a freshman, Westphal was the hard luck loser in a 3-0 loss to Georgia Tech. He threw 8 strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings. Fellows also faced Tech in the regionals as a freshman and received a loss as well.

That was then and this is now. If Georgia wins on Friday they will play at 6:00 pm et on Saturday, if they lose, they will play at 2:00 pm et.
