That is right Lion Nation....Baseball season is here. Well sort of. The 2012 edition of Lions Baseball have reported to campus, taken their physicals and are moving at full speed as they prepare for the upcoming fall season.
The players completed the 2nd Annual Lion Fun Run this morning, where the team competes in a one mile run. Those who do not meet the required time are welcomed to the "Bonus Club", where they run extra each morning until they can complete the mile run in the required time. The early morning workouts have also begun. Each morning the team reports to the Naquin Strength & Conditioning Center for weights and conditioning prior to attending class.
Jay Artigues will look to put his 38 man roster through individual workouts over the next week, with the first team practice set for September 11. Once again the Lions will host intra-squad games throughout the fall season, which are free and open to the public. Fall practice will conclude with the annual Green-Gold World Series.
SLU will open the season February 17-19 with a three game series against Indiana State at "The Pat".
