Diamond Dawgs Open Fall Practice Today

Sept. 10, 2008

SEATTLE - The Washington baseball team reported today for the first day of fall practice. The practice season will continue through Saturday, October 18, wrapping up with the traditional intra-squad 'Fall World Series.'

The Huskies, under 17th-year head coach Ken Knutson, will undergo two-a-day practices for most of the next two weeks before fall classes begin on Sept. 24. After classes get underway, the team will practice most days before the five-game Fall World Series.

Among the players returning for the start of practice are two All-Pac-10 first-team performers from the 2008 season who were drafted last June, but opted not to sign professional contracts. Starting pitcher Jorden Merry, who was 8-2 with a 3.61 ERA last season, was drafted by the White Sox in the 14th round while outfielder Kyle Conley, who hit 19 homers last spring, was the Dodgers' 16th-round selection.

All practices (see the schedule below) are open to the public.

The Huskies open the 2009 season next Feb. 20 at defending NCAA champion Fresno State.
