    College Baseball Starting Changes

    http://www.omaha.com/index.php?u_pag...&u_sid=2322725

    The changes next year set Feb. 1 as the start date for practice, with the regular season to open on the Friday that falls 13 weeks before the selection of the 64-team NCAA regional field on Memorial Day. The 2009 season will start Feb. 20, with the first games of 2010 set for Feb. 26.

    Re: College Baseball Starting Changes

    That would mean that the start date for GAMES this year would have been either the 19th or the 26th depending on when you start counting back from Memorial Day.
    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than be selfish and worry about my liver." -- by Jack Handy

    Re: College Baseball Starting Changes

    ...the WAC is switching from three-game series to four-game sets, leaving less time for games with Hilo. from http://sports.espn.go.com/ncaa/news/story?id=2742820

    Changes with the fact that WAC is going four game stands.


    That would add 7 games with 6 to fill

    Re: College Baseball Starting Changes

    I believe they are going to the 52 game maximum format, so if we add an extra game to each weekend conference series by playing a doubleheader on Saturdays, it should work out ok. The big problem is to have enough quality pitchers for 4 weekend games. I think the coaches will be tempted to run the pitch counts up sometimes which could result in arm and shoulder injuries. Teams will be recruiting more pitchers now to try to compensate for these rule changes.

    Re: College Baseball Starting Changes

    A doubleheader every Saturday in WAC play? Good grief. What about when weather necessitates an extra doubleheader?

    You're right, Falcon. Deep pitching has always been more valuable, but will be an absolute necessity now.
