Loving the staffs willingness to steal.

 

This is a backup C for UCLA, and he has not shown the accuracy or pop time to get our speedy runners out.  We will continue to challenge him

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


Greg Swindell was the vc for a year 2 seasons ago. You are only allowed 2 full time asst. coaches so it helps. But it's not like some dad on the little league team.

I have turned on this game twice. Both times Texas had men on 2nd & 3rd w/1outs. Both times they stranded the runners. They have scored 3 runs while the TV was off so I will take one for the team and no longer turn on the game.

Top 4th:

 

1st batter hits it right by a diving Bret Boswell.

UCLA has a man on 1st.

 

2nd batter hits it to Kacey Clemens who bounces it to Boswell. Thats an E3 and runners safe on 1st and 2nd. Shouldve been a double play.

 

3rd batter bunts his way on and bases are loaded now. No outs.

 

4th batter hits into a 6-4-3 sacrifice DP. No ER.

UCLA ties it a 3.

Man on 3rd with 2 outs.

 

5th batter hits it into left field. Thats an RBI single. Unearned.

UCLA takes the lead 4-3.

Man on 1st. 2 outs

 

E1 on a pick off attempt. UCLA gets their man onto to 2nd.

 

Connor Mayes is up in the bull pen.

 

6th batter flies out to RF.

 

That ends the T4th.

 

Texas loses the lead off of 2 errors. Blair Henley is at 81 pitches.

 

And the whole team literally ran to the bull pen!

The whole team just ran to the bull pen and back. Not sure if it's punishment or if it's to keep them warm on this 48 degree day.

 

Pretty sure it's the latter but it was funny.

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.


Thx Joey, your post was so long I thought RD had resurfaced for a minute.

Basketball season was this way for me I watched more game time with prolonged scoring lapses and the times Texas was able to score I was not able to watch yet as soon as I saw TV here comes scoring woes

So I'm assuming he gets paid well enough to make the "volunteer" job worthwhile? Paid via summer camps, slush fund, or coaching for peanuts for the love of the game?
