Lael Lockhart posted a brief video on Twitter yesterday of him working out at our new Baseball Performance Center. I replied to his tweet and asked if he was in Fayetteville and wondered what he thought of the new facility. He gave a great response:
"In Fayetteville for the off-season! New complex is breathtaking. The technology and development in the building is not fair to say the least. Also to have the coaches here that know how to translate the information to the players in college and professional ball is a game changer. Not even to mention the recovery tools, nutrition, weight room and players areas. Even a ‘pro locker room’ that out does most team locker rooms. About out of room in the pro locker room due to the amount of guys wanting to come back and work out here cause how special it is here."
I think we’ve all known that Razorback baseball has a special culture. DVH has built that, and it’s nice to see a recent player excited about this new facility and its potential to impact players. I love the fact that so many of our former Hogs in the pros call Fayetteville home during the off-season, and now they have even more reason to do so. It can only lead to great things.
It was really nice of him to respond in such a detailed way. (I figured if he responded it all, it would be something like “It’s great!”) Just tells me how excited he is about it.
