Washington Baseball's opening four-game home series originally scheduled from Feb. 22-24 at Husky Ballpark against Northern Colorado has been moved to Arizona. The series will now be played Feb. 21-23 at Brazell Field at GCU Ballpark on the campus of Grand Canyon University in Phoenix.
Lindsay Meggs might have the deepest and most versatile pitching staff he has had in his 10 years at Washington. He and pitching coach Jason Kelly will lean on this group of arms to continue the UW trend of not only ranking among the Pac-12's best stable of pitchers, but help lead the team to a return trip to Omaha.
There is no doubt who Washington's starting catcher will be in 2019. Nick Kahle, who caught almost 97 percent of the team's innings behind the plate during UW's College World Series run and earned All-Pac-12 accolades, will be the main man. But Coach Lindsay Meggs will have other options behind the dish, including the much improved Michael Petrie and a pair of freshmen: Colton Cassinelli and Albert Hsiao.
Washington Coach Lindsay Meggs, previewed his team before the Huskies take the field for the first time in 2019 on Friday, Feb. 15 at UC Irvine. First up, the Huskies' 10th-year coach previews the offense and defense, focusing on the outfielders and infielders. Coming up soon, a preview of the catchers and pitching staff.
Kaiser Weiss doesn't think of himself as a hero. The sophomore from Oxnard, Calif., just thinks of himself as a guy that was doing his job as a freshman when he drove in the winning run that sent his team to the College World Series. He may not be a hero, but he at least has a flair for the dramatic as he delivered several other key hits throughout the season. This year, Weiss is excited to have a bigger role on the field and hopefully have some more heroic moments for the Huskies.
