Carlos Pena had a few pointers for sophomore Tyler Colvin during practice. Pena told him that each player is responsible for certain areas on the field. This is good because it might lead to more organization this season and who knows that if Pena wants to take part in mentoring Colvin, maybe they’ll be able to give Pena a day off and put Colvin in at 1st base.
They key to winning championships is depth. If the player knows their role and doesn’t try to do too much, they will succeed.
When it comes to pop- ups, there’s nothing more agonizing than seeing a couple of players running into each other over a simple catch.
It’s also good that Mike Quade is keen on letting his players speak up. This will build a more comfortable atmosphere.
Hopefully, Pena continues to be a communicator in the locker room. I think this was a problem last year. I believe in this team and can’t wait for the season to get going.
