5. Have any of the incoming freshmen impressed you during Fall workouts? Do you expect any of them to break into the starting lineup/rotation this spring?
I really like our freshman group. Recruiting Coordinator Matt Fonteno did a tremendous job of helping assemble this outstanding group of young men. I mentioned two in LHP Nick Sparks and two-way player Kevin Milam. Another freshman RHP that had a great fall was Andrew Hansen from Roseville, Ca. They will all play big roles for us on the mound. Other freshman that had productive falls and who will fight for playing/starting time will be outfielders Andrew Shebloski from San Diego, CA, Ryan Novis from Tempe, AZ and Joe Vranesh from Alamo, CA. Its an exciting group that will continue to help us move this program forward.
