2017 MSU Baseball (29-23, 9-13)

Post by Floyd Robertson on 2016-11-02, 14:51

Schedule released today.

2017 MSU Baseball Schedule

EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State baseball announced its 2017 schedule Wednesday. Head coach Jake Boss, Jr., and the Spartans will open the 2017 season on Friday, February 17 in the first of a 53-game regular-season ledger.

Of the 53 games, 14 of them are against teams that played in last season’s NCAA Tournament.

“We are excited to put together a very competitive schedule, and I think one that has several good RPI opportunities that will hopefully put us in a position at the end of the season for postseason play,” Boss said.

MSU baseball growing with leadership, sights set on Big Ten championship

It’s a scenario likely to have been envisioned by head coach Jake Boss Jr. thousands of times, and one he was so close to last season.

After recording the final out, he would be the first to hoist the Big Ten championship trophy as the team mobs the field. After accepting the team’s award he would hand it off to the Spartan team he led through the 53-game regular season, starting with the seniors then downward chronologically.

The vision is one Boss has lived through before, having led the Spartans to a championship in 2011, and since then has secured consistency in the program and a culture starving to go back.

“We’re tired of being close,” Boss said Friday after the team’s first open practice of the season. “It’s time to take that next step and elevate that program another level.”

Seems impossible that Boss has already been coaching the Spartans that long. Feels like it was only 2-3 years ago.

Looks like this F OF Danny Gleaves from Chicago St. Rita is going to be an asset, starting out 8/15 at the plate.

C Matt Byars is having an early season slump, .154 vs his .284 in 2016.  Not good from your every day C.

If Dan Durkin, arguably the soul of the team is off to a blistering .571 with 9 RBI.

Series finale is noon today.
