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 will be a long but fun ride home, but it will be very sad to say good-bye to our seniors when we get back home early Saturday morning at FedExPark.

Before we get on the bus for the ride home, I want to take a moment to thank all the fans for listening again this year to our women's basketball and baseball broadcast. I really appreciate your comments on the broadcast and the emails you all send in. I know I say it a lot, and people get tired of hearing it, but getting to broadcast for my alma mater is really an honor and very special to me. I'll never take it for granted.

Some special thanks to the two SID's I work with the most, Tammy DeGroff with women's basketball and Jason Redd with Baseball. I would like to lie and tell you all I'm just full of knowledge, but without the help of those two the broadcast would not be nearly as good.

Thanks as well to Coach's Melissa McFerrin, Daron Shoenrock and their staffs for making themselves accessible and easy to work with.

Also a special thanks to Malvin Massey and Andrew Vandeventer of WUMR for their help in providing a home for the two sports I broadcast on radio.

And as always a big thank you to Bob Winn and Jennifer Rodrigues who hired me back in the summer of 2003, I will be eternally grateful to you both for bringing me home.

Sincerely, Jeff Brightwell
