Batter Up: Baseball Update
by Austin Lonzo
Baseball season is back and underway.
The men started out their spring season down in Auberndale, Florida on March 3. The Bobcats went 4-3. Head coach Scott Adams shared what he thought about the team’s performance.
“We did see a number of performances that have really enforced our belief that we can compete with anyone on any day,” Adams said.
Michael Spadafore, a junior management major, is a centerfielder for the Bobcats. When asked about the coaching staff, Spadafore said this.
“I feel very confident in the coaching staff. They push us to work harder, and they really changed the culture of how we look at each other.”
The men started their regular season play on March 30 as they hosted Penn State Altoona for their first section game. Pitt-Greensburg lost their first game 2-7 and won their second game 7-3.
Dylan Pounds, a senior accounting major, plays shortstop for the team. He explained a major difference from last year to this year.
“I do believe our team is much more relaxed than last year, which can make us a better team,” Pounds said. “If we are relaxed and not stressed out, we will win more because we are supposed to go out on the field and have fun.”
The Bobcats are 7-6 in regular season play and 1-3 in the conference. Their next section game will against the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford.
