    Xavier Baseball 2017

    GoXavier.com - Xavier Picked to Finish 1st in the Big East - Baseball

    Xavier and St. John's actually tied in the poll, but Xavier got 4 1st-place votes to the Johnnies' 3. Senior Joe Gellenbeck was also tabbed as the preseason Big East player of the year.

    The season will start with a 4-game series on the road at Troy on Friday, February 17. First home game will be against Ohio State on Sunday, March 19.

    Zac Lowther showed why he had a great summer in the Cape Cod league. He struck out 8 and allowed 2 runs (1 hit) in 5 innings.

    Xavier Baseball 2017

    He's going to make some good money in the draft.

    X is 4-4 after splitting with both Troy and Penn State. A very respectable start.

    By the way, Xavier's next nine are all on the road at the likes of Charlotte, Georgia, Southern Miss and Louisville. If the Muskies can just avoid finishing that stretch with a 4-13 record and are competitive in most games, it will be a success.

    I'm curious as to how the baseball team travels. Do they go by bus or plane?
    We often talk about the basketball team traveling for one night, and the cost involved.
    The baseball team would (I think) be taking a lot more people to away games, and they are staying for 3 and 4 game series sometimes.
    That would mount the costs up, with hotels, meals, etc.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    I suspect that it's mostly by bus. Maybe Creighton is far enough that a flight is necessary.

    I did hear the Utah Valley parents talking about their kids catching their flight back home after a weekend series at Wichita State a couple weeks ago. That's about a 15 hour drive, and you have to think Xavier is AT LEAST as generous as Utah Valley in paying for travel. So you can assume anything over 15 hours is a plane. I'd be surprised if anything less than 10 hours merits a plane.

    The starting rotation has been very good so far - Zac Lowther, Garrett Schilling (last year's closer), Trent Astle and Greg Jacknewitz.
