    2020 ISU (and MVC) Baseball Season Thread


    Register to remove this advertisement
    Preseason Poll just released today.

    1) DBU= 61(5)
    2) MSU= 51(1)
    3) ILST= 49
    4) ISU= 40(1)
    5) BU= 38(1)
    6) UE= 21
    7) SIU= 18
    8) VU= 10

    I believe Max Wright is our only returning position player (catcher). Colin Libertore was our weekend's second day pitcher last season and did pretty well. I am thinking this will be a little bit of a rebuilding season for us, but I am still expecting us to have a fairly good season. I heard our recruiting class was really good.

    DBU is always good and I guess they return a ton of players from last year. They are ranked 23rd in one national poll. MSU was down last season, but is normally pretty good. I think ILST lost their really good pitcher to the draft last season but they still should be decent. Bradley was decent last season, but wasn't good enough to make the NCAA Tournament.

    The MVC Tournament is going to be at SIU this season. Thankfully it is not at MSU or DBU. It will be close enough that I should be able to attend again.

    Pittsburgh is beating us 6-0 in the 5th inning. Looks like it could be a rough first day for our team.

    Indiana State vs Pittsburgh

    Its a rough start to the year for our Sycamores. Pitt leads 6-0 in the 5th inning. Offense is struggling to do anything, Collin Liberatore, who shined last season, is getting rocked today. Giving up 3 2-run homeruns. I hope its just a slow start, but this lineup doesn't appear to be very good....atleast early on. I will be following all season, whether we are good or bad. Just was hoping for a better start.

    This is definitely going to be a rebuilding season for us. Every position player we had last season graduated except for our catcher. I do expect us to improve and contend for a top 4 spot in the MVC standings. I haven't heard any official word, but I assume that the MVC baseball tournament will have the same format it had this past season.

    It has only gotten worse. Now 10-0 in the 6th...however the Sycamores have runners on base, threatening to score.....and we do, but only one. Had the bases loaded with one out and one run in....but had back-to-back strikeouts to retire the side.....Man this is hard to watch after the season we had last year.

    It can be hard to watch at first, but also enjoyable to watch the guys grow into their roles. It is only the first game. Lots of baseball left to be played.
