Diamond ’Dogs return to field

October 2, 2014





Nearly four months after being named the seventh head baseball coach at Louisiana Tech, Greg Goff and his new-look coaching staff will kick off a jam-packed fall schedule, which includes 12 scrimmages, a three-game Fall World Series and an alumni weekend over the course of 44 days.

Tech will held its first official practice of the fall on Monday, Sept. 29, with daily work that began at approximately 2:45 p.m. at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park. All Bulldog baseball practices and scrimmages this fall are open to the public.

The team had the opportunity to meet Goff and his coaching staff, which includes Rick McCarty, Jake Wells and J.D. Hulse, on Aug. 31 when the Bulldogs assembled for the first team meeting prior to Tech’s fall quarter beginning.

Since then, the staff has conducted individual workouts with the players in the weeks prior to the official start of fall practices.

“The coaches and I have been looking forward to getting our guys on the field this fall ever since we stepped on campus, and we’re excited the time is finally here,” Goff said.

“We have started to get to know our players a little bit since we’ve been here, but now it is time to get on the field, get everyone on the same page and see what we can do as a team.”


Several scrimmages will be played throughout the fall season, with 12 total dates set for Oct. 2-4, 7, 10-11, 14, 17-18, 21, 24 and 27.


Louisiana Tech will then hold its Scout Day on the evening of Tuesday, Oct. 28.


The Bulldogs return 20 players that saw action on the diamond a season ago, with 19 newcomers currently on the fall roster. The roster will be cut down to 35 players prior to the start of the 2015 baseball season.
