Men’s Golf Coach Interview
The University of South Florida Baseball team is just a few weeks away from officially opening up the 2012 season on Feb 17. Head coach Lelo Prado spoke to the Digital Bullpen about the upcoming season.
With just two weeks before their first game of the season, the USF Baseball Team opened their first official practice of 2012. One of the biggest questions about the Bulls this year is the health of 6-8 starting pitcher Andrew Barbosa. Coming off season ending Tommy John surgery, Andrew says he’s feeling good.
The Bulls were picked to finish 4th in the Big East pre-season poll that debuted a couple of weeks ago but Barbosa thinks the Bulls can do better than that.
Once again there are high expectations for the Bulls who get their season underway in St. Pete on February 17th against Ohio State in the Big East-Big 10 Challenge.
For the Digital Bullpen, I’m Nick Gryniewicz
