Alabama baseball: Bohannon, players dealing with tough roster decisions
TUSCALOOSA — John Trousdale grew up dreaming of playing for the Alabama baseball team.
And last year, mostly in a pinch-hitting role, the former Lauderdale County High standout achieved a taste of that dream — just enough to leave him craving more.
Because new Alabama baseball coach Brad Bohannon inherited a messy roster situation from fired coach Greg Goff, Trousdale is among several members on last season’s team dealing with an uncertain future with the team after electing a different path for the upcoming season.
Julien arrives as Auburn’s newest ‘Eagle de guerre’ from Quebec
AUBURN – Language is no longer a sufficient recruiting barrier for Auburn baseball.
Nearly two years ago, Auburn head coach Butch Thompson walked into a room with people who didn’t and weren’t by themselves going to understand his recruiting pitch. Or so he thought.
