2022-2023 Baseball offseason thread

Here is a thread to discuss the happenings with Niner baseball and college baseball in general over the summer.

Summer ball has started and we have quite a few in the Cape, the CPL, SCBL among other leagues. We will do a blog post on that soon.

The highlights are already rolling in. Here is incoming 49er Eli Weisner hitting a bomb for the HiToms.

The MLB Draft is July 17 and that could have a big impact on our roster this summer. Several guys are eligible and deserving.

We can also discuss the NCAA’s and the coaching carousel here. There will bee 2 new coaching hires in C-USA, and there has already been one in the AAC with another on the way.

WKU & FIU have openings. Tulane has an opening. Memphis’ coach retired and they have hired Kerrick Jackson as their new coach.

In Coaching Carousel news, Baylor’s coach has stepped down and 3 candidates among the 8 listed by D1 Baseball come from C-USA schools, Hallmark at UTSA, Burroughs at LT, and Heefner at DBU

Also, Clemson has parted ways with Monte Lee this week. D1 Baseball lists Woody and Cliff Godwin among their list of 8 candidates to watch.

Maybe he see’s whats happening here and wants to be a part of it :grin:

I saw something earlier this week that he was going to go back home and play for FSU, but who knows with the NIL deals. I’m sure some $EC schools are going to get into a bidding war for him.

Wow. That’s big

Not 100% sure of the rule but I wonder if maybe he’s going JuCo so can enter draft next year

Yes, players can get drafted after 1 year in JUCO and not have to wait until they are 21 or after their junior year like in D1.

No going to lie I was lowkey happy to see that State missed the tournament.


Not sure what all went down behind rhe scenes, but I was told Bo was bad mouthing Charlotte for how he was treated, at the ACC tourney last week.

I’d like to think that Bo is too mature to do that. I hope so, anyway.

The Tourney starts tomorrow. Regionals of interest:









Boshamer Stadium looks to be in a weather delay shortly.
Go Georgia.
BTW, it seems appropriate that Cheat’s stadium has “shame” embedded in its name.

We have quite a few guys playin in High Point this summer.




and some incoming guys


and a former Niner.


Squeeze Play channel is the way to go!!!

If it’s “presented” by Capitol One…why would it cost me $6.99 a month to watch?

That’s just the cost for ESPN+. Same thing you can watch various other Niners games on.

Interesting story, don’t know how you can get something that wrong.
