Virginia Tech Baseball Season Starts Next Week: Time for the Season and Roster Reviews


The hard reality of college baseball is minor league pro baseball. The minors are the gateway to the majors, and the baseball draft is a tempting gimme for young men who live to play the game. Baseball is, as I have said many times in the past, a life sport. The people who play it have to acquire serious skill sets, catching, throwing, hitting, running bases before they even are considered good enough for more than a sandlot team. That means starting early and playing a whole lot. Baseball seasons are always marathons that end up in longer more intense long-distance sprints to cap off the marathon seasons.
