    In Game 1 of the Steak N Beans series, Jordan Smith and Toby Hanson both hit home runs. Matt Stemper had 2 doubles, while Matt Fiedler and Alex Boxwell added two stolen bases. Ben Meyer was strong on the mound in his 2.2 innings of work striking out five, allowing only 2 hits, and no runs. It was gorgeous night for a ballgame at Siebert Field and the team will be back at it at 1pm out at Siebert.

    Any idea who all played 1st base yesterday as that seems to be one of the biggest position openings to fill from last season?

    Tyler Hanson and Kyle Crocker played 1st base for both Friday and Saturday's games. In Saturday's game, there was not much offense to come by as many of the freshmen pitchers looked quite good. Lucas Gilbreath, from Colorado, pitched 2.1 innings striking out 4, and Reggie Meyer, Ben's younger brother, struck out 3 in his 2.2 innings of work. Michael Handel went 2-2 with 2 RBI's for Maroon who won 3-0 to even the series 1-1.

    I really think they should have Toby Hanson play first base or atleast get some time there. He is not a D1 caliber catcher and thats really one of the only positions i could see him playing. They could use his bat in the lineup and need to find a spot where they could play him without having any issues.

    In a chilly game 3, the Gophers hitters combined for 15 hits in the 7 inning affair. Tyler Hanson, Matt Fiedler, and Chris Schaaf all went 2-3 in the game. Other notables at the plate were doubles by Alex Boxwell, Dan Motl, and Schaaf. Toby Hanson tripled, and Troy Traxler hit a home run.

    Ben Meyer was dominant on the mound going 2.1 striking out 5 and allowing only 2 hits. Tim Shannon went 2.2 scoreless, and Lance Thonvold threw 1.2 no hit innings.

    I know it is early on and only fall scrimmages but it is looking like at least a couple of these freshmen will be fighting for regular playing time and could make an impact.

    Curious as to why you think Toby Hansen is not a D1 caliber catcher? Good size, strong arm, quick release, gets the ball to second in a hurry, called all his own games in H.S. and is very good defensively. what's missing?

    Was really hoping he would be a Gopher and not sure what the deal is with going JUCO had heard the Gophers and Oklahoma State were after him so either that changed or maybe it is to be able to play just 1 year of college and then be able to re-enter MLB draft.

    If you have been around division 1 catchers you would know a 2.2 pop time isn't good enough. You should expect a 1.9 or 2.0 at worst. The arm isn't very strong, and the quickness on the feet is below average. His bat is great and will exceed at this level, but in games i think teams will take advantage of him and steal a lot of bags.

    Don't you think he is a good enough athlete that our program and staff should be able to bring his defensive inefficiency's that you mention up to D1 caliber pretty quickly. He is an 18 year old true freshman...seems a little soon to write him off as a B10 caliber catcher.
