Bat Govs enter 2011 with deep, healthy pitching staff

 

APSU Men’s Baseball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsClarksville, TN – Sitting down with Austin Peay baseball head coach Gary McClure two weeks before his squad takes the field in its first regular-season competition, it becomes evident he faces a quandary with the team’s pitching staff. Granted, it’s a problem most coaches would enjoy having entering their campaign. That problem? A deep staff that enters the 2011 campaign with few injuries.

The Governors have long been regarded as a team where you have to contend with its pitching staff. The 2005 and 2007 Ohio Valley Conference championship teams were built on the foundation of strong pitching staffs where the weekend rotation was a certainty and the bullpen came in to shut the door.
