Baseball field sees repairs, turf

The XU baseball team is looking forward to new improvements on its home field that will benefit both Xavier's baseball and the soccer stadiums. This past year, a shed was added on the left field line. In addition, the soccer field

will be receiving new turf. The old turf from the soccer field will be transferred to the baseball field around the newly installed shed, and will likewise cover the gravel that currently surrounds the baseball diamond.

This replacement turf will enable the baseball team to better

practice pitching and catching ground balls, especially when the field is too wet due to rain, allowing for more productive practices. "Our facilities have gotten unbelievably better over the last year," redshirt junior pitcher Alex Vice said. "The new turf will add to that." After the installation of the

turf, there are no future plans for any additional changes to the baseball field according to Jim Bergen of the Physical Plant. The team is currently 9-15 on the season after defeating Indiana University 11-3 last night in Bloomington, Ind. The Xavier baseball team opens Atlantic 10 conference play with a three-game home stint this weekend versus

Charlotte. Games begin Friday at 3 p.m. and continue on Saturday at 1 p.m. and Sunday at 12 p.m. at Hayden Field.
