    What new money? No seriously, where is this "new money" coming from? Does Tech really have any "new money" coming in?

    Not that I know about. But we do seem to have lots of baseball fans wanting to see great Bulldawg baseball. We will have a true season ticket sellout for the Love Shack. Love it!

    If they were “true” Tech baseball fans they would of had season tickets prior to now - at the minimum they would of got them last year prior to the new stadium opening

    What they are doing now is out and out chicken shit….

    I hope all Tech baseball fans, old and new, have something to get excited about. We did lose 6 of 8 everyday starters, right? Parker Bates et al are gone and with them goes a TON of production. Big shoes to fill. Pitching last year was feast or famine, but overall, fairly mediocre. Need improvement in the staff.

    On to Omaha!

    I know we don’t have Garcia, Wells, Ray, or Bates coming back. Other than that, I am not sure

    New Money, means alumni that don't give a shit about Tech sports unless said team is winning and it's fashionable to be a fan again. They probably were spending their dollar on football 3 years ago, now Holtz has made it hard for them to wear a blue polo on Fridays at the office in Monroe etc, so they are swinging to baseball.

    No one thinks we are actually drawing in new casual fans with deep pockets to the dumpster fire our athletic department has created. Any sport BSB or MBB that has succeeded during the TMac admin and the first year of dudley do nothing is solely because of the efforts of the coach and players, and the loyal fans that supported through the build up.

    Not true per our men’s baseball team last year and the years to come IMHO! There are the old faithful Dawg baseball fans and a whole new tremendous group of fans that are incredibly energized and excited. It’s a new and very intense driving force and an awesome “loyalty-cult” for years to come.

    I have a sickening feeling that if Tech displaces itís everyday fan with the new deep pockets season ticket holders itíll be like football. There will be an attendance announcement of 1500 (just to make up a number) but there will only be 200 people actually sitting in the seats cheering on the Bulldogs. Something such as that would be a horrible waste and end up hurting the team in the long run. I seriously doubt that the deep pockets are going to show up every game. Yes, theyíll be there to be seen for the LSU game, but they wonít be there every conference game against Ďwho caresí (insert the team of your choice). I almost guarantee that the Tech powers at be will screw up the seasonís fan base attendance somehow. Itís what they do.

    They always announce season ticket holders as if they are actually there along with whatever walkup tickets are sold. They do this in every sport. Last year baseball was never been under around 1200 announced even on a cold rainy night.
