Scouting the Sycamores

Indiana State finished 2007 26-26 overall and 7-17 in the Missouri Valley Conference. Prior to this season, the Sycamores were predicted to place seventh in the MVC. Wichita State is picked to win the conference. ISU has only been able to practice outdoors a few times due to the weather. The Sycamores will run a veteran group onto Swayze Field with eight of the 10 starters in their junior or senior years. Two sophomores round out the starting lineup. Out of the players that have recorded more than five at-bats, Chris Schmidt and Pascual Del Real lead ISU with .385 and .300 averages respectively. Schmidt has also knocked in four of the team's 11 RBI. Sycamore starters have performed well versus South Florida, but the Bulls were able to put up runs late. Twelve of ISU's 14 runs allowed have come in the sixth inning or after.
