Pierce is going to give McCann a shot to continue producing today.

I'm glad that McCann is playing today. I've seen the other movie and it's a shit show even defensively

Agreed.  Actually thought he'd see more action this weekend, but I think Pierce is giving Cantu a chance to work through his challenges.

Alright I'm here. Forgot my credentials at home and had to run back and forth. Now that I'm here though there have been two runs scored for Texas!

 

A RBI single up the middle by Austin Todd and a RBI double by Bret Boswell.

 

Texas is up 2-0. 1 out, men on 2nd and 3rd.

And Travis hits right into the shift for out 3 of the 1st inning.

 

Not before the Horns get on the board with an RBI single up the middle by Austin Todd and a RBI double by Bret Boswell.

 

ULCA's Olsen threw 31 pitches that inning (19 strikes).

 

Horns have been good at making opposing pitchers pay early so far this year.

Henley could stand to avoid leadoff walks.  That's playing with fire.

Saw during a game earlier this season that our pitching coach is a volunteer coach. Is that accurate, and what is his background? How is he paying for his food and rent?😎

Volunteer is a bad way to describe it. They still get paid. But yes. He's technically a volunteer coach. Most teams have one.

Phil Haig, a former collegiate pitcher who served the last five seasons on David Pierce’s staffs at both Tulane and Sam Houston State, enters his first season as volunteer coach at Texas.

Haig spent the last two seasons as volunteer coach at Tulane where he assisted Pierce with the pitching staff. While there, he helped the Green Wave to back-to-back NCAA Regional appearances.

In 2016, Haig played a large part in guiding Tulane to an NCAA-best 13 shutouts, setting a single-season school record, surpassing its nine in 2015, Haig’s first season at Tulane. The 2015 Green Wave pitching staff was one of the best in the nation. The backend of the bullpen registered 17 saves, tying for the fourth-most in a single season at Tulane.

Prior to Tulane, the 28-year-old spent three years as Pierce’s volunteer coach at Sam Houston State. In each season with the Bearkats, Haig helped SHSU to the Southland Conference title and an NCAA Regional appearance.

Before starting his collegiate coaching career with the Bearkats in 2012, Haig spent the 2011 season as a left-handed pitcher at Florida International University after sitting out the 2010 season due to transfer rules. While at FIU, he led the Golden Panthers in wins (nine), innings pitched (99.1) and strikeouts (72). His 9-4 record helped FIU to a 40-20-1 record and an NCAA Regional Appearance. For his efforts, Haig was named an All-Sun Belt second-team selection.

From 2008 to 2009, Haig was a dual-sport athlete at Illinois, where he lettered in both football and baseball. During his sophomore season with the Fighting Illini, Haig went 7-3 in 82.1 innings, leading the team in wins. As a freshman, he finished the season with a 2-3 record in 36.1 innings, earning Big 10 Pitcher of the Week honors during the final week of the regular season.

Haig was also a backup quarterback for the 2008 Fighting Illini football team that competed in the school's first Rose Bowl since 1984.

The Inver Grove Heights, Minn. native was a five-sport athlete at Henry Sibley High School where he earned a total of 10 all-conference honors: three in baseball, three in tennis, two in football and one each in wrestling and basketball. He earned three all-state baseball selections, while also receiving high national rankings from major recruiting services for his work as a quarterback.
