MUS Baseball began preseason practices Monday, February 11, in preparation for the 2008 season that opens March 13 against White Station High School at 7:00 p.m. in the Metro Invitational Tournament.
Head Coach Marc MacMillan ‘92 is excited about the start of preseason practice.
“This time of year brings great anticipation and excitement as both coaches and players are ready for the start of the preseason. The players have put their time in physical development improving their overall strength and athleticism, and it’s time to get on the field.”
The Diamond Owls graduated seven seniors from 2007, so this-year’s roster fields a much younger squad. With such youth, preseason becomes an important time for the Diamond Owls.
“With only two seniors, this is our youngest ball club since 2001 despite the fact that we have ten more players participating than our ’01 squad. Therefore, the preseason is very important due to both our youth and the fact that we return only three players who started every game last year, “ explains Coach MacMillan.
“The coaching staff and I must use this time to continue to evaluate each player in order to determine varsity and JV rosters, so we anticipate a highly competitive spirit in our practices as we look to fill positions.”
The Diamond Owls preseason and regular-season schedules are available on the MUS Baseball website.
