Nov. 14, 2013
LOS ANGELES - The time for Sunday, November 17th scrimmage against the University of San Diego at Dedeaux Field has been changed to 11:30 a.m. PT. The teams will play a full nine innings plus a few extra innings.
This will be the first time this season that the Trojans have faced an opponent wearing a different colored uniform. The team boasts 27 returners, including six position starters and the entire weekend pitching rotation. 15 newcomers have also joined the fold for the 2014 campaign, and that class was named the 24th-best recruiting class in the country by Baseball America.
The Toreros, who are coached by 15th-year head coach Rich Hill will enter the 2014 season having made eight postseason appearances. In 2013, behind the hitting of slugger Kris Bryant, the Toreros won the WCC Tournament title and finished 37-25 overall, falling to the eventual College World Series champion UCLA Bruins in NCAA regional play.
The Trojans have another scrimmage slated for next Saturday, November 23 at Long Beach State. The start time for the game is 12 p.m. PT.
