Baseball Finishes Up Fall Season With World Series
SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah baseball team held their fall World Series this past weekend and the Red team won the series 2-1.
They won Friday and then the rubber match on Sunday to claim bragging rights over the black team. The close series wrapped up a very successful fall for the Utes.
"Team practice went outstanding," head coach Bill Kinneberg said. "We didn't miss a beat as far as practice time with the pandemic. We did a great job with that and haven't missed a day of workouts. That was the biggest positive of the whole thing. We also have had great effort all fall. I think the practice time was a real relief to guys to be able to get out and do things and be around other people. It's been a tough eight months on them."
The team has practiced and scrimmaged all fall with zero interruptions. With all of the good work they've done, one thing that really stands out about this team is the versatility across the board.
"We do have some versatility in the infield and have six guys in the outfield that have the ability to play any position as well. There is still a lot of work to do to determine our best nine or best 12, but we have the makings to have a lot of different lineups out there."
Not only will the team have some versatility, but they have more depth on the pitching staff with almost everyone returning from a season ago while also adding graduate transfer Brayson Hurdsman from Houston.
The team now has individuals for the next three weeks before breaking for the holidays.
