Baseball Begins Individuals for 2021 Season
SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah baseball team takes a big step in starting its season today as they begin individuals before diving into team practice for the 2021 season.
"Huge day for us to get going as it has been almost two months since we've been together," head coach Bill Kinneberg said. " I can't wait to see the guys to get going and am excited to move forward. We look forward to beginning our season in about five weeks."
Team practice will begin January 29 and the schedule for 2021 is still being finalized and will be released once it is.
Utah returns almost everyone from last year's team and adds in a group of talented newcomers with transfers and freshmen. Two of their transfer will be a big boost as Jaylon McLaughlin, from Nevada, could be the leadoff hitter and Brayson Hurdsman, from Houston, will be a boost in the bullpen and provide experience.
The Utes finished the 2020 season 6-7 after winning two of three against Minnesota. The team was set to begin Pac-12 play when the season was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
