McNeese Baseball Team Concludes Fall Workouts with Annual World Series

The McNeese State baseball team concluded fall practice with its annual intrasquad fall world series over the weekend, which resulted in the Bandits sweeping the series over the Blue Bombers.

"This team has done a good job of continuing to improve from day one," said head coach Justin Hill. "We have a great group of high-character, hard-working guys who make it fun to come to work everyday. We have a lot of competition in quite a few spots both on the mound and offensively. There are still quite a few spots to be won before we play our first game, so the remainder of our fall, semester break, and our pre-season practice will be very important for our team."

The Blue Bombers took game one, 6-5, in extra innings, which was highlighted by a Jackson Gooch walk-off single. The blue squad clinched the series after defeating the Bandits, 5-3, in game two. The Bombers were also able to rally in the seventh inning to take game three on another walk-off win, 2-1.

"I really liked how our team wrapped up the fall," said Hill. "We had three very competitive games in our Fall World Series. We are still in the process of getting a few guys healthy, especially on the mound, so our work throughout the remainder of the fall will focus mainly on the individual needs of our players with a few team activities mixed in. We will continue to lift and condition as a team up until a week before final exams. In addition to our players' academic and athletic responsibilities, they will also be active in the community throughout the remainder of the fall semester."

McNeese opens the season with a three-game home series against Chicago State at Cowboy Diamond on Friday, Feb. 14.
