Baseball Set For Pair Of Midweek Clashes
Feb. 25, 2013
Game Notes & What To Watch For:
- Only Wednesday's home game can be followed via Gametracker due to lack of internet capabilities in Grambling for Tuesday's game. Fans can also follow along on the official SFA Facebook and Twitter pages for the most up-to-date information on all games.
- SFA is 6-16 all-time vs the Bulldogs, having lost eight in a row in the series, including games in 2009 and 2012. Wednesday's meeting will be the first of four games between the teams, with SFA traveling to Ruston for three games beginning March 15.
- SFA is 7-0 all-time vs Grambling, winning five games since 2010, including two games last season.
- SFA shortstop Hunter Dozier needs just two doubles to become new all-time career leader at SFA.
- SFA led the Southland with 35 homers as a team last season. Of that total, 18 HR from last season return. The 'Jacks hit two home runs in its opening series vs South Alabama, both coming from Freddy Villalobos in the opening game.
- Hunter Dozier is SFA's first ever preseason all-America (Collegiate Baseball, NCBWA). He is the only Lumberjack to reach base in each of SFA's first three games.
- SFA is installing new lighting at Jaycees Field, allowing for night games to be played in Nacogdoches for the first time since 1995.
