Mike Olt was the UConn shortstop during his freshman year in 2008 and at the start of the 2009 season. During the 2009 season he got hurt and missed a number of games, at which point freshman Nick Ahmed took over at shortstop. When Olt returned from his injury, he was moved to 3B with Ahmed remaining at SS. That Olt started out at SS before moving to 3B to keep Ahmed in the lineup at SS gives an idea of Olt's defensive ability, that he was good enough to play a solid shortstop for UConn as well.
While I had been periodically listening to UConn baseball games on WHUS since the middle of the 2000 decade, the injury and move of Olt from SS to 3B is one of my first real memories of UConn baseball, and it is right at the start of my blossoming obsession with UConn baseball over the next several seasons.
