WASHINGTON - The Georgetown baseball team held its first full team practice of the spring on Friday afternoon. Due to recent winter weather in the area, the Hoyas were forced indoors, practicing at Diamond Sports Training in Sterling, Virginia.
"It was great to get all the guys back to work," senior shortstop and co-captain Ryan Busch (Falcon Heights, Minn./Rose Area) said. "The competitive juices were flowing today. Everyone is excited and ready to go for the upcoming season."
On Friday, pitchers and hitters faced each other for the first time in a live setting this spring. For the past few weeks, since the beginning of the semester, hitters had only been hitting off of a tee and in soft, front toss. Pitchers had been throwing long toss and bullpens without hitters.
"The guys put in a good first day of work today," Head Coach Pete Wilk said. "I liked what I saw from both the pitchers and the hitters, for the most part. There is still a lot of work to do, but I see the potential for a memorable season."
The Hoyas open the 2015 season on the weekend of February 13-15 at the Wake Forest Invitational where they will play VCU, Bucknell and Delaware.
