Baseball Holds First Practice of 2019 Preseason

THE FLATS — Georgia Tech baseball fully got underway on Friday afternoon as the team took the field of Russ Chandler Stadium for the first official practice for the 2019 season.

After brief warm-ups and conditioning, the Yellow Jackets went straight to work in the field, scrimmaging for six innings, while also going through situational work.

The preseason 17th-ranked Yellow Jackets return seven starters from last season and boast one of the strongest pitching staffs in the nation heading into the 2019 campaign.

Chase MurrayOscar Serratos and Kyle McCann help return 70 percent of Tech’s run production in an offense that led the ACC regular season in both hitting percentage and hits. Xzavion CurryConnor Thomas and Tristin English are just three of the highly talented arms on a staff that only bolstered its depth after leading the ACC in walks/9.0 innings and strikeout-to-walk ratio last year.

Georgia Tech players and head coach Danny Hall met with media after the conclusion of practice:
