New, comments

BASEBALL. HERE. NOW. FINALLY!

The Tigers will be hosting Florida Southern in the most important game of the year. Because it's the first. Can you tell we were desperate for baseball? We're not even waiting for baseball on the radio, or baseball on TV. We're happy to watch baseball on the Internet and crash Florida Southern's website in the process. (Here's the live stats).

Tomorrow's starting lineup for the Tigers really doesn't matter much since they'll only get one at-bat each, but here it is:

Austin Jackson, CF
Will Rhymes, 2B
Magglio Ordonez, RF
Victor Martinez, DH
Jhonny Peralta, SS
Brennan Boesch, LF
Brandon Inge, 3B
Ryan Strieby, 1B
Alex Avila, C

Left-hander Andrew Oliver gets the start.

By the way, the Moccasins were ranked as high as No. 2 in NCAA's Division II.
