[quote=“Mr. Bojangles, post:5, topic:31111”]Exhibition tonight vs Czech Republic National team.
After seeing one practice last month, and assuming everyone is healthy, here is my way too early line-up prediction.
Reece Hampton CF
Drew Ober LF
Jackson Mims 3B
Harris Yett DH/ C
Dominick Cammarata RF
Zack Smith C/ DH
Jesse Gonzales 1B
Hunter Jones SS
Tommy Bullock 2B
The practice I saw a month ago, Jones was only playing the field because he was still recovering from wrist surgery, Yett was out with a back injury, and Ober was not out there.
Tate Pennington was at SS opposite of Jones
Jake Whitcomb was opposite Bullock at 2B
Eric Lansinger was alternating at 3B with Mims
Sam Mennitt was Catching opposite of Smith. Seems like he can play anywhere.
Chase Haywood and Brandon Kunz were out in LF in Ober’s absence.
I wouldn’t be surprised to see one of the Freshman at DH or 1B, depending on how much offense they bring. Lansinger had a pretty big frame.
I’m guessing whoever has the biggest bat between Bullock, Whitcomb, and Pennington will be our 2B. I’ll give the edge to the JUCO.
Zack Smith and Yett could alternate at 1B and C this season, opening up the DH spot.[/quote]
Whitcomb is going to be a solid talent, and the type of player you want in your program. Ober is also incredibly talented. Excited about this group.
