It's practice day at the Conference USA Tournament in Houston, Memphis was at Cougar Field from 12:30-1:30 this afternoon. Pretty good workout for the team in the heat and humidity. Doesn't seem like our two 11am games will be that bad, but the 3:00 game on Thursday with Marshall will be really hot and humid.
First team party at Coach's house. Two-a-days. Dreadful prowlers. Sweating. Fatigue. Team competitions. Discipline. Morning workouts. Road trips.
Just a couple of housekeeping things right now and then obviously we are expecting news of the conference tournament's location in the next few hours (or next few days if it's not released until it's official through the University Presidents).
Well, we wrapped up our first season at FedExPark last night with a win over Murray State. It was a really nice year in the inaugural season at the newly renovated facility. Again, a big thanks to FedEx for the gift. A lot of what was done could not be seen by the general public, but it was really nice for the players to be able to go directly from their dugout to the locker-room and the team was able to train on site in the new turf room.
Tough three games this weekend. Timely hits and solid pitching performances by East Carolina proved to be enough to steal three games from us this weekend. We didn't go down without a fight, though. We had some good at bats and recorded several good hits, but couldn't quite figure out how to push runs across the board when we needed to.
