Illinois St at Arkansas game 2

Brr :cold_face: it’s cold out here on the 250’ buffet line (although the middle section is empty.)

It’s 41 baseball degrees at the BaumBQ Squad tailgate just outside beautiful Baum-Walker Stadium. :baseball: :boar: #WPS #ThisIsBaseball

Per tweet Moses Moody is throwing out the first pitch.


Illinois State starting a dreaded LH had a 4+ ERA last year 71 IP 79 hits 52 K 21 BB teams hit .281. so he’s definitely not going to try to overpower you. Just a matter of knowing what you’re getting and going up there with the right mindset. We were 13th in the SEC last year with a .203 team batting average against LH. Hopefully that will change this year starting today… hopefully Smith can have a very clean first inning that will help a lot

Wow! Smith very impressive, great velo working both sides of the plate


I haven’t followed off-season closely, not familiar with him, but he did look good. Now if he can maintain that level a few innings and we start to swing the bat…

Impressive freshman pitcher. Seems to have good command and location. I wish the radar was working so I could see his velo.

Smith looks really good early. Now we need to get our offense to look as good.

Incredible freshman who threw seven no-hitters last year in Texas probably would have been drafted in the first round if he hadn’t said a high number.
Very very advanced for his age

There you go bob ball player got us on the board


Definite check swing by Slavens

Slavens got screwed on that call

Lanzilli came close, but nice to see the 2 out double. A hit to score would be nice

That’s just our luck. Ball would have been gone without the wind blowing in… I was texting a friend and I said that will probably cost us a run though because I left hand is up next and it did

For those keeping track of things good for the Hogs today, here is an update on the Alabama Kentucky basketball game. I got it on in another screen. Alabama up 41-31 with 5 min left in the 1st.


Slavens scares me to death out there in the outfield already

Don’t know where Slavens was throwing that ball after almost mis playing that fly ball.

Slavens in RF is a “no” for me…
