Jan. 17, 2006

SEATTLE - The Washington baseball team held its first practice of the spring season this afternoon in preparation for the 2006 season opener Feb. 10 at New Mexico State.

The Huskies, under 14th-year head coach Ken Knutson, will work out nearly every day between today and their departure for Las Cruces, N.M., on Feb. 9.

The team will practice at 3 p.m. on weekdays, 10 a.m. on Saturdays and 1 p.m. on Sundays, with the exception of off days on Jan. 27 and Feb. 2. Additionally, practice on Sunday, Feb. 5, will begin at 10 a.m. All workouts will be held either at the Dempsey Indoor or Husky Ballpark, depending on the weather, and the public is welcome to attend.

Washington, ranked No. 38 in the Collegiate Baseball magazine preseason top-40 poll, begin the season with a three-game series at NMSU Feb. 10-12. That's followed by a four-game series the following weekend at Cal State Northridge. The Dawgs open the home slate Feb. 24, with the first of three games vs. Gonzaga at Husky Ballpark.
