The Utah baseball team recently concluded its fall practice season.
"It was a really good 27 days of practice for our guys," Utah head coach Bill Kinneberg said. "With 25 returning guys, a lot of things were covered and reviewed, but on the other side it was tough on the newcomers catching up. I felt like at the end of the fall we were ready, and if we had to start the season we'd be ok. We are healthy. Our goals for the fall were met and now it's time to refine and continue on with our individual workouts from here."
Kinneberg is extremely pleased with the progress of the pitching staff.
"Our three starting pitchers were outstanding this fall," Kinneberg said about Mitch Watrous, Tanner Banks and Dalton Carroll. "I think it goes to say that we have really good depth on our pitching staff now."
Utah ended its fall campaign with a Red vs. Black world series, with the Black team coming back to beat the Red squad in all three games.
"Pitching dominated the first game with Banks and Watrous," Kinneberg said. "The offense shined on both Friday and Saturday and we did a lot of good things at the plate. Our pressure offense was outstanding over the three games and the defense played really well too."
