Baseball: CWS practice session photos
Augie Garrido, making his ninth College World Series appearance as a head coach, addresses the media as Stanford head coach Mark Marquess looks on during an afternoon press conference at Rosenblatt Stadium. Garrido, unlike the other seven assembled head coaches, did not name a starting pitcher for the College World Series opener. Garrido did say that the new outfield configuration at Rosenblatt, with the fences moved back seven to 10 feet in the power alleys, "helps a little" given his team's outstanding outfield defensive speed, but, he added, "I don't think the fences will determine the championship." Speaking of championships, Garrido is seeking his fourth as a head coach. His Fullerton teams won the title in '79, '84 and '95. UT's last baseball national championship came in '83.

Alan Bomer, seen here working out on Thursday afternoon in Rosenblatt, is one of the UT pitchers that could get the starting call in the Horns' Saturday opener vs. Rice. Bomer has a 2.38 ERA and three wins in three post-season starts. He has walked just one batter in 22-2/3 post-season innings. (AP Photo/Dennis Grundman)
Tim McGough walks to a wayward ball during the Horns' Thursday practice session at Rosenblatt. McGough appeared in both of UT's wins over Rice earlier this season, starting one of them, but the sophomore rightie is expected to fill a relief role in Omaha. (AP Photo/Dennis Grundman)
Big Rice rightie Steven Herce, shown here during practice Thursday at Rosenblatt, will take the hill for the Owls on Saturday evening. Heading into CWS play, Herce is 13-2 with a 2.82 ERA and has 96 Ks and just 22 walks in 111-2/3 innings pitched. (AP Photo/Dave Weaver)
Former Horn Vincent Sinisi signs autographs in Rosenblatt. Sinisi, named a first-team all-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association earlier this week, enters the CWS with a .432 batting average, the 10th-best mark in the nation. The Owls' clean-up hitter collected five hits in his seven at-bats in two regular season games vs. Texas. (AP Photo/Dave Weaver)
