Jeff Brightwell Season-Ending Blog

Well, the 2010 baseball season wrapped up today at Cougar Field in Houston, what a way to end it against ECU. Tyler Huelsing homered in his last college at-bat to win the game 3-2 in the bottom of the ninth. Senior Brennon Martin threw a complete game and retired the last 18 Pirates for the win. Really happy for the seniors and this team, that finished 28-30. Coach Rock's Tigers have a very experienced line-up returning, we had 4 sophomores and a freshman in the line-up today that will all be coming back. If we can replace Martin and Fraser on the weekends and shore up our bullpen, the next two years could be really fun.

It's day two of the Conference USA Tournament. One word could describe day one, HOT. It will be that way again today, and we'll play in the heat of the day when we face Marshall at 3:00.

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.

Tiger baseball is still on the road. We'll leave from Hattiesburg this morning and make the seven hour ride to Houston to the Conference Tournament at the University of Houston.

Tiger baseball is in Hattiesburg today to begin a three game series against Southern Miss. The Conference is still so bunched up, we could finish anywhere from second to last.

First team party at Coach's house. Two-a-days. Dreadful prowlers. Sweating. Fatigue. Team competitions. Discipline. Morning workouts. Road trips.

Good morning/afternoon/evening Tiger Fans!

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.

Another semester and year is officially in the books. I saw a majority of the team swing by the office this week while dropping off their book receipts. Tomorrow, seniors LaToya Bullard and Tehani Goldsmith are on the list for graduation ceremonies.
