NEW FIELD: Head coach Mike Littlewood posted several tweets throughout the summer on BYU’s new baseball field.  Here is what he shared with BYU’s Daily Universe about the field:  "It seems like just yesterday that I approached Brian Santiago about the prospects of putting in a new playing surface. From that short conversation almost four years ago, along with a generous gift from former BYU baseball player Dave Decker, and of course with the support of our administration, we see the fruits of everyone's efforts.  This is not just a first-class stadium in this area, this is a first-class stadium worldwide and should be a game changer as far as the baseball team being able to play and practice outside during the winter months."

HONORING COACH TUCKETT:  Former BYU baseball coach Glen Tuckett (1959-1976) will be honored with an early birthday party (his actual birthdate is in December when he turns 90) thrown by his former players, all of whom are invited to attend on Sept. 15 at 7 p.m., in the Blue Zone of LaVell Edwards Stadium.  It will be a casual reception with remarks by former Major Leaguer Dane Iorg and former Cougar catcher Pal Eldredge as the emcee.

ANNUAL BASEBALL GOLF OUTING:  The annual BYU baseball golf outing is on Sept. at 15 at the TalonsCove Golf Course—the slots are full for that tournament.  Following the golf tourney, there will be an open house that everyone can walk through from 5:30 to 6:45 p.m. at Miller Park.  Following the open house. The 2017-18 Cougars will hold a baseball scrimmage on Sept. 16 at 10 a.m.

ADD ANOTHER MARRIED PLAYER:  Outfielder Keaton Kringlen got married last month to McKenna Santiago, former BYU volleyball player.  The other married players on the team include: Brennon Anderson, Brock HaleKendall Motes, Rhett Parkinson, Hayden Rogers and Jordan Wood.

MISSION CALLS:  Virginians Pete Nielsen and Matt Favero have received their mission calls after being on the team last season.  Nielsen’s call is to Birmingham, Alabama and Favero’s call is to Eugene, Oregon.

MAJOR LEAGUE SON:  The fall roster has been posted and it includes freshman infielder Colton Kent, son of former San Francisco Giant Jeff Kent. Kent played 17 years of professional baseball (1992-2008), including six with the Giants from 1997-2002. Kent won the National League Most Valuable Player award in 2000. He was a five-time All-Star and also played for the Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros, Cleveland Indians, New York Mets and Toronto Blue Jays.

ANOTHER PRO CONNECTION: Freshman pitcher Walker Sigman is also on the new BYU roster.  Sigman’s brother Jackson pitched for the University of West Virginia and signed with the Kansas City Royals organization this past summer.
