ATHENS----A total of 45 student-athletes took part in the first full team baseball practice at Foley Field Monday afternoon. 

UGA baseball coach Scott Stricklin and his staff conducted a two-hour and 30-minute workout that featured base running, pitchers fielding practice, pop-up communication, bunt defense, pickoffs and rundowns, first and third defense and concluded with batting practice.

Before the practice, Stricklin and selected veteran players visited with the media.

“Coach Stricklin wants us to get out here and compete,” said junior second baseman Nelson Ward.

Redshirt sophomore pitcher Pete Nagel said he has been impressed with the new staff including pitching coach Fred Corral.

“He probably knows more about pitching then any man on the face of the earth,” said Nagel.

“It was a good day to be out here and have our first day of full practice,” said Stricklin. “Everything is very structured. We told the team that eyes are on you at all times, and we’re going to do things the right way and compete.”

The Bulldogs are scheduled to practice through the end of October.
