MSU Scrimmage Stats Through Oct 6

Mississippi State baseball has played nine scrimmage so far. Enclosed are the complete hitting and pitching stats for the nine games.

Notes From The Scrimmages:
  • The team is now using the new metal bats that meet the new bat standards created by the NCAA. The bats act very, very similar to wooden bats and even have a very similar sound to how a bat sounds when hit off a wooden bat. That is part of the reason for lack of home runs and probably the lower batting averages. Like going from metal bats in the spring to wooden bats in the summer wooden bat leagues, there is an adjustment period needed when using the different bats.
  • Although a few of the pitchers have hit 90 or above velocity-wise at times this fall on my Stalker gun, they have been told to throw at 80% velocity the first 9 scrimmages. That should change starting next week when I believe they will ease into full velocity pitching.
  • If my stats are correct, there have been 25 stolen bases in the first nine games (both sides combined). Leading the way with 4 is true freshman C.T. Bradford. Sophomore Sam Frost is next with 3, followed by six players with 2 each (Ogden, Shepherd, Abraham, Pitts, Vickerson, Brownlee).
  • Several players are sitting out the fall while rehabbing, including RSO LHP Nick Routt, RJR RHP Michael Dixon, JR LHP Tim Statz, SO RHP Ben Bracewell, RJR RHP/INF Paxton Pace. Also sitting out the rest of the fall scrimmages is FR INF/RHP Taylor Stark who pulled a hamstring. SR C Cody Freeman is limited to defense during the scrimmages.
  • For the first 9 scrimmages batters have had a 1-1 count on them at the beginning of their at-bats. That should also change starting next week when I believe the count will begin at 0-0.
