    Baseball Recruiting and Commitment Thread

    I would think there is still a chance Calvin Ziegler might arrive in Storrs, as you never know how the MLB draft will shake out. As for Adrian Siravo, with him going the JUCO route, I can't see that happening at this point.

    At this point, both PrepBaseball Report and PerfectGame are listing Calvin Ziegler as a UConn commit. Still, it is something to be concerned about.

    Baseball Recruiting and Commitment Thread

    Calvin Ziegler's twitter account is now has him listed as a 2021 high school grad. Perfectgame.com and Prepbaseballreport.com are also now listing that way as well. So it looks like UConn has lost another top pitching recruit for the coming season...

    Movie Hindsight 2020

    Donovan’s Reef (1963) - Starting in 1939 with “Stagecoach”, John Wayne starred in 17 movies directed by the great John Ford. With the exception “The Quiet Man”, which is arguably the best film these two film giants made together, for the most part these films were either westerns or had a...

    Take a tour of brand new Elliot Ballpark with head coach Jim Penders!

    Coach Penders in a construction hard hat instead of a UConn cap. That's not the usual look I'm used to, but it's appropriate to the current surroundings. Coach makes a good tour guide.

    2020 College Summer Ball - UConn players

    I think @huskymedic may be on to something, considering I posted the above about a half hour ago. "Somebody" just might be reading the Boneyard: I believe this is the first mention in a UConn baseball tweet about Caleb Wurster playing in Newport this summer.

    2020 College Summer Ball - UConn players

    Caleb Wurster is playing summer college ball in a league in Newport, and has compiled some interesting stats. 3 games pitched, 2 of them as a starter, for a total of 7 innings. He has a 1.29 ERA, with 12 strikeouts, and he has given up 2 hits and 6 walks. I believe Wurster is the only UConn...

    2020 College Summer Ball - UConn players

    UConn has had a pretty good run of having players (especially their California JUCOS) doing summer ball with the Healdsburg Prune Packers for the last several years.

    Films Worth Viewing Year 2

    I once read where "Black Narcissus" is simply brilliant in its use of technicolor, that it is one of the most colorful films ever made. It is a wonder to look at, and it is another great Powell/Pressberger film.

    I would think Adrian Siravo wants to keep his options to go pro open. If he came to UConn, he would have to wait until after his Junior year to go pro. JUCO players can pretty much go pro after each JUCO season. Obviously it would have been better with Siravo, but it looks like to me UConn...

    Adrian Siravo is no longer a UConn baseball recruit according to this tweet from him. Instead, Siravo is going to a junior college in Texas.

    2020 College Summer Ball - UConn players

    I saw this tweet, so I went to look at the linked box score to this game. Erik Stock pitched 1 inning in relief, gave up 2 walks and got a strikeout for a scoreless inning. I then noticed that in the same game Angus Mayock also pitched 1 inning in relief, striking out all three batters that he...

    A little progress is being made. I had not gone looking for CCBL rosters in a while, but with John Fedko sending out some tweets today, I went looking and found several Huskies on various team rosters. The only team that I did not find a roster for is the Hamden Miners. I recall seeing a...

    Reggie Crawford had been off to a slow start with the bat in the Futures League. Before yesterday's game he had been hitting .205 through nine games and 39 at bats, which of course isn't all that big a sample. With two doubles yesterday, perhaps his bat is starting to get hot like it can be...

    Functionality changes?

    Ok, good to know. If that is the policy, that's the way it is. By the way I checked my post from last night around midnight, and it still had the Edit/Delete buttons, so that was in the six hour area.

    Last night after posting this previous message, I went back to check on the post periodically to see how long the Edit/Delete functions stuck around. They disappeared about two hours after my initial posting.

    Functionality changes?

    I use Safari and Chrome. I can Edit or Delete something that I just posted. It looks like I lose these functions after a period of time, not sure how long.

    OT: Old Westerns

    That exact line does come from Hondo, which is a is very watchable film. From what I have seen, Hondo is one of the better westerns that John Wayne did that was not under the direction of John Ford or Howard Hawks.
