Ok folks its game day. Man I excited for this season LETS GO GET IT BOYS!!!

When in doubt. Nap it out

Ian Seymour will be the starter today. Last year had a record 3-3 with a 4.17 ERA. Was a solid pitcher last year had a little bit of inconsistency but I'm gonna chalk that up too being a True Freshman

When in doubt. Nap it out

I wish they were playing this afternoon. I could sit at my desk and watch while I work.

I'm gonna watch it while I'm at the Wrestling match on my phone later

When in doubt. Nap it out

What time is wrestling match and who's carrying it? Hope the baseball team gets off to a good start.
Looking to draft Chad Pinder to rep VT on my scoresheet baseball team.

What are the expectations for this team in 2019? From what I've read, seems like half the team is new having transferred in or come directly out of high school.

Good start.

I think it's too early to tell right now give me two weeks and I get you a opinion

When in doubt. Nap it out

I'll look for ya in two weeks!

Well?

Baseball America does not have a very high opinion of VT in general, and it goes back a long time. I know this because they are HQ'd in Durham and I used to know a few people who wrote and researched for them.

I'm not saying its unwarranted, but I never expect to see them predict us to have any success in the ACC.

In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

I just finished reading this article, it was interesting but I feel it's worth saying that they don't even mention VT in it lol.

The only reference was our record in the coastal and that we finished in last place last year.

East Tennessee pitcher can't find the strike zone right now

I've been trying since beginning of game to see it on watch espn, but it ain't happenin' here so far for me. Thanks, Verizon.
Started watching live stats, we're up 7-0 last I looked with all the runs in the first inning, which seems to be our stock in trade so far.

Thanks for the watch espn heads up... 7-0 top 2nd

How much of stands can you see on watch ESPN?

Barely any. 1st 4-5 rows near on deck circle on both sides. Those seats currently appear empty.

#1 for ETSU lost his jersey somewhere in between Johnson City and Blacksburg. How do you do that? Is there an ETSU baseball jersey in a bathroom stall at the Wytheville Sheetz? Or did he just "lose" it and actually forget to pack it?

I think he should lose his number for the rest of the year.

Someone lost it on 95 North from Johnson City Tennessee to Richmond, maybe he left it at a Truckstop.

How do you let it be game time and figure out your Quarterbacks jersey is missing before a game? See Sean Glennon and three others for the 2007 game against Georgia Tech.

Those jerseys were stolen. I think ETSU homeboy just forgot to pack his.

Hokies won 9-3. Good win given they lost to ETSU last year. Their bats will need to be a little more consistent as the season progresses. They can't count on scoring 7 runs in the first inning and then only scoring 2 for the rest of the the game against better teams because those teams simply won't let them score 7 runs in 1 inning. The season is young, though, and the Hokies are 4-0.

Tech baseball are gonna be at home this weekend against UNCG for Saturday Sunday and Monday. Saturday game is at 2 pm Sundays is at noon and Mondays game is at 1 pm but if they can't play Saturday they'll have a DH Sunday game 1 will still be at noon and game 2 will be at 4:30ish.

Must have been an interesting game, the winds were crazy today. Gusts to 50+ mph. Ive got a hemlock trying to come down. Rigged some 4x4 braces w 3 ft stakes pounded all the way in some insanely wet soil n brackets and saved it. I couldnt imagine playin baeeball in this weather. Glad we won!

I was watching while I worked and turned it off in the 5th. I was afraid they weren't going to hang on. That wind was brutal.

Awwww That's the inning they tied it up in😢😢

Then in the bottom of the 7th Kerry Carpenter hit a bomb over the scoreboard to go ahead

When in doubt. Nap it out

I had to go home after they tied it up. Hate that I missed the big home run. I'm glad Kerry came through with his bat after getting burned by the wind in the field.

Last year baseball team would have lost this game I'm glad they pulled through

First time since 1987 we started 6-0

Nice. When was the last time we were 7-0?

Glad I was finally able to tune in and watch a game. I usually keep close tabs, but haven't synched up yet this year until today. Exciting game, drama filled, and what a finish.
How 'bout them Hokies?

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

Noice!

Thanks for these "other sports" updates!

Is it basketball season yet?

Hokies really struggling going into the 9th. Despite bases loaded in the fourth, weren't able to get anything done.

This one never looked good for us. I tuned in at 1-1, and it just seemed that Bryant had our number. We had several men in scoring position, including the bases loaded fourth, but just couldn't buy that clutch hit.
I don't know diddly about Bryant, but our overall record against them isn't good. Also, it was kinda sad to see all those folks so bundled up for a baseball game...what few folks there were there that didn't have to be anyway. Had to be a miserable experience for the players, as well. A night game in early March in Blacksburg, what'd anyone expect, though?

Tech has Florida State down two in extras.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Wow, tough loss. They were an out away in both the 8th and 10th. It was a difficult play but the centerfielder should have had that one.

Pitchers gotta quit leaving the ball over the plate

VT win 6-0 against FSU. Only one hit by FSU. Great work to win after yesterday's tough loss.

Tech beat Pitt 11-4

Great game for the Hokies. I tuned in for the grand slam. Great day for Hokie ballers, ladies beat NC State and I tuned in just in time to see a home run bunt. Cool beans. Way to go Hokies.

Keeping you on the edge of your seat, clearly

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

And keeping with the high scoring trend in our smallball teams, the ladies slaughterated the Wolfpack 12-1 after 5. Home runs galore for both clubs.

Im at Braves Spring Training Game against Houston Astro's. Anyone know if any former Hokies are on the rosters? Used some cell data to google it and couldn't come up with anything.

Dont know if he is at the spring training games but Kit Scheetz is a minor leaguer for the Astros.

Found him he wasn't in a very friendly mood in the bullpen.

I waited till a break in the game. Went over said his name and excuse me could I get a picture of you now or after the game throwing up the VT or together whichever is easier. He said no sorry can't.

I wouldn't read into that, Spring is high pressure for minor leaguers and I'm sure he wants to look focused on the game while he's around the coaching staff.

I've been disappointed before over the years, but this team does seem to have something going on. Fun to have another good team to watch and follow. Like I've also mentioned before, the softball team is kicking butt as well.

Scored 2 in the 7th to cut it to 4-2 going into the 8th

Senior Center Fielder Nick Menken had to have his spleen removed this weekend

When in doubt. Nap it out

Damn! Hope he has a speedy recovery.

Little known fact, someone without a spleen is susceptible to death by infection by any skin break caused by a dog bite. Something in their saliva. Had a friend who died just that way. It was a tiny accidental nip he got breaking up a couple of pits at a party, but a few days later, he was gone.

I was reading up on if you can live without a spleen. And it said it makes people have a more chance of dying by infection made me say oooof that's not good

Baseball is 17-12 on the season, 4-8 in conference. Their next three games are at Wake Forest. They beat VMI 13-1, which ended a six game losing streak that included 3 games against #15 Clemson, 1 against Liberty and 2 against UNC.

I was surprised by that streak. They've certainly had their moments this year, but we're getting into the tough part of the season. Better pitching is stymying our batters who are capable of producing a lot of offense if they can get rolling and not leave too many men on base, which happened during that losing streak. Sure did blast VMI, though and I'll certainly watch some of every game this weekend.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

I seen that Chris Gerard didn't pitch last weekend. I wonder if he's was sick or injured

When in doubt. Nap it out

Well, baseball has been up and down, for sure, but we took one against #11 GT last night, 3-2. Glad we have them at home, but we have to try to win this series to capture some momentum. We have some ground to cover to catch up enough to make the ACC playoffs.
So, congratulations Hokies, let's get another one!

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

Baseball last night went into the 9th inning with a 10-3 lead against VMI and would need every bit of it. The Hokies ended up surviving 10-9 after allowing 6 runs in the ninth inning. The rest of the week holds a single game against Radford and then a weekend three game series down in Miami. With the win, the Hokies are now 23-18 on the year.

Yeah same ole bullpen problems from the last 5 years

When in doubt. Nap it out

Any 757 Hokies going to tonight's game vs ODU at Harbor Park? Debating on heading out, but the last time I went to see VT vs ODU in athletic competition it didn't go so well.

I'm here for the memes, I just stay for the football.

I was planning on going tonight. I'm hoping this time goes better.

If the weather's as good there as it is here at the coast, what a night for baseball. Root 'em on for me, would you?
