Scrimmage with OK State in Stillwater starts at Noon. They decided it will be 7 innings with a 15 minute break followed by another 7 innings.

Should be interesting but this is primarily just to trot folks out there and get them a little scrimmage time with no strings attached.

"Win" or "Lose" its a good thing to get the players out there and let them take some swings before winter settles in.

DVH - It would take life changing type money for Matt Hobbs to leave Arkansas for MLB.

DVH - the big league teams are trying to learn from college pitching coaches.

DVH - Matt Hobbs will be here at Arkansas for a long, long time.

Ryan Folkes? @RyanFolkes

To future Razorback pitchers:

One day you will have a choice between the University of Arkansas and professional baseball.

Your future pitching coach had the same choice. He chose Arkansas.

Fall Report: Arkansas

quote:

• Heston Kjerstad put together yet another outstanding fall for the Razorbacks. He looks like someone ready to be a high first-round draft pick next summer. Kjerstad hit well over .300 this fall and slugged five or six home runs. What’s interesting about Kjerstad, though, is that Arkansas played him at first base 80 percent of the time this fall. It’s not that the Hogs are dead set on moving him to first base, but Van Horn wants to get creative with the positional assignments at time in the spring. He said there’s a chance he plays first.

“He did nothing but hit … as usual,” Van Horn said. “I played him at first base about 80 percent of the time, so we can see how he looks in case we decide to put him over there at times. He did fine over there. There are some little mechanical things we can fix, and it’s not overly smooth, but he made every play. He catches the ball really well.”

quote:

For instance, Opitz gained around 15 pounds of muscle after the season until now and is up from around 160 since he arrived in Fayetteville to 198 now. For the record, a scout recently told me Opitz was viewed anywhere from a second-to-fourth rounder for next summer.

quote:

• Casey Martin has had some bad luck with injuries over the past few months. DVH revealed that he played the final few weeks of the season with a shoulder injury before breaking his hamate bone this fall. Though his fall wasn’t filled with opportunities, he showed some strides in some key areas.

“He didn’t play much this fall, but he’s had some tough luck. That shoulder was really bothering him at the end of last season,” Van Horn said. “He was having a good fall. He knows that his battle is cutting down on strikeouts and putting the ball in play more often, and he was doing that before he got hurt.”

quote:

• Matt Goodheart didn’t play this fall after having offseason shoulder surgery, but DVH said he’ll be ready to go in the spring.

• Another injured player this fall was Grayson (Texas) transfer Braydon Webb. Webb put together an outstanding 2019 campaign in the junior college ranks, hitting .450 with 14 home runs and 66 RBIs. He hurt his shoulder diving for a ball early this fall and didn’t play again. However, Van Horn saw all he needed from the talented outfielder.

“He had a great fall when he played and was a really athletic left fielder for us,” he said. “He’s just now getting back from that cracked bone in the back of his shoulder, but he was starting. He’ll start. The way he approaches the game – he kind of has that same type of twitchiness that Casey Martin had.”

• Former Freshman All-American Christian Franklin appears to be Dom Fletcher’s replacement out in center field. Though Fletcher was a premier defender who took outstanding routes and had great instincts, Franklin is much faster. He also took a step forward with the bat this fall, showing more consistency and hitting the ball with authority.

“He’s really taken a step forward with the bat,” DVH said of Franklin. “He’s hitting the ball with authority and everything is better with the bat. He’s a great runner and though he’s likely to be our center fielder, we’ll also look at some other guys like Webb, too.”

quote:

• Two freshmen that have a chance to make a huge impact in their inaugural campaigns are righthanders Peyton Pallette and Blake Adams.

JB Hunt family donates $5 million to the Baseball Development Center. They are now voting to name it after them.

Construction starts next month, gonna suck to have a big boring eyesore out in right all season but worth it obviously. Should retain more noise.

College Baseball Nation - Arkansas 2020 Season Preview

quote:

We're taking a look back and a look ahead at college baseball teams from around the country. Next up are the Arkansas Razorbacks!

In an era where teams around the country are investing in college baseball, the Arkansas Razorbacks have set themselves apart with their excellent facilities, passionate fanbase, and consistent winning ways.

A Look Back at 2019

2019 was another successful season for the Razorbacks, as the team returned to the College World Series. Entering the year at #16 in the preseason poll, Arkansas defied the expectation that 2019 would be a rebuilding year and finished the season ten spots higher than where they started.

Arkansas finished the year 46-20 (20-10) and hosted a Regional, which they swept in convincing fashion, and a Super Regional, where they took down Ole Miss in three games. The Razorbacks’ run eventually ended in Omaha where they ran up against tough Florida State and Texas Tech teams; however, the 2019 season further entrenched Arkansas as one of the modern blue bloods in college baseball.

Bolstered by their always deep roster, Arkansas consistently sends talent to the next level. Seven Razorbacks were drafted in the 2019 MLB Draft, including three in the first five rounds: Dominic Fletcher (75th overall), Isaiah Campbell (76th overall), and Matt Cronin (123rd overall). It will be interesting to see how the departure of talented arms affects the Razorbacks in 2020.

A Look Ahead at 2020

Fan excitement is at an all-time high in Fayetteville—even the Razorbacks’ fall game against Oklahoma drew over 6,000 fans. After coming off back-to-back College World Series appearances, Arkansas will look to stretch that Omaha run to three straight seasons in 2020.

Arkansas will start the season with a seven-game homestand, featuring Eastern Illinois, and a scrappy Gonzaga team before they head to Houston for the Shriners College Classic where they will take on three Big XII foes—Oklahoma, Texas, and Baylor—in the confines of Minute Maid Park. (Check out the full list of 2020 College Baseball Tournaments)

SEC play will start with a bang as the Razorbacks travel to Starkville for an SEC West showdown with Mississippi State. This series could go a long way in determining who wins the West. The first cross-divisional series comes in April when Arkansas will welcome the Florida Gators to Baum-Walker Stadium.

Mid-April will bring an intriguing five-game road trip for the Razorbacks. First Arkansas will head over to the Box to take on LSU before heading up to East Lansing for two midweek games against Michigan State. Arkansas will finish the season with nine straight games against SEC East opponents as the Razorbacks draw South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee from the East.

John’s (@johnny_omaha_) 2020 Prediction: The Razorbacks will end 2020 in Omaha.

It’s going to be hard to replace Isaiah Campbell and Matt Cronin, two of the Razorbacks’ best arms from a year ago, but Arkansas has a lot of talented young arms. Sophomores Connor Noland and Patrick Wicklander should compete for rotation spots once again. Noland won the first game of the Fayetteville Regional and amassed a 4.02 ERA over the year. The Razorbacks also have a few guys returning from Tommy John surgery, including Caleb Bolden who Razorback Head Coach, Dave Van Horn, says will “be one of our best guys next year.”

Arkansas returns the heart of their lineup with talented hitters including Casey Martin and Heston Kjerstad, and even going up against SEC pitching, Arkansas shouldn’t have issues scoring runs. Once again, it looks like the Razorbacks should be a National Championship contender in 2020 and should enter the year in the top ten.

Kyle's (@kylemckelv) 2020 Prediction: The Razorbacks will make it back-to-back-to-back trips to Omaha.

Going further, I think they’ll be one of the last four alive in Omaha. Their offense returns six starters and they return two starting pitchers, among other strong bullpen arms that accounted for 66% of the bullpen innings pitched last year. That would be enough for a team to be competitive anywhere but if you combine it with the fact that these players have loads of post-season experience, it makes this team quite dangerous. They should also compete with 2019 National Champ, Vanderbilt, for the SEC Regular Season crown.

A truly generous gift by the Hunt family was announced today and the Baseball Development Center will bear their name as a result. Such great news and something that will benefit the baseball program for an extremely long time:

Hunt Family Makes Signature Gift For Baseball

This means we will start using the 1B side dugout and visitor bullpen will now be in left field, surrounded by the Hogpen.
