FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The No. 4 Arkansas baseball team held its first practice of the 2012 preseason on Friday afternoon at Baum Stadium.

 

Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn met with members of the media before practice and talked about the great weather that greeted the team as spring practice opened.

 

 

“I think this is the first time in several years that we’ll be able to get outside and get a lot of work in,” Coach Van Horn said. “It seems like we’ve been pretty charmed this year. We’ll be going full blast with practice and scrimmages this weekend.”

The Razorbacks will enjoy three weeks of practice before getting the season started on Friday, Feb. 17 against Villanova. Coach Van Horn said the team is anxious to get underway.

 

“I know our players are looking forward to getting the season started,” Coach Van Horn said. “I felt like in the middle of last year when the young guys were playing so well that 2012 could be a great year. I think we’re ready to roll.”

 

The Razorbacks practiced for three hours on Friday. After opening with some defensive drills, Arkansas closed the practice with an intrasquad scrimmage.

Arkansas RHP Baxendale named to USA Baseball Collegiate National Team

Arkansas sophomore pitcher DJ Baxendale has been selected to the 22-man roster for the 2011 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team.

Baxendale was thrilled with the honor. “It’s a real honor to be selected for the team and to be able to represent the University of Arkansas on Team USA,” he said. “I’m looking forward to playing some tough competition this summer and representing my country on the baseball field.”

Baxendale is the eighth Arkansas player to be selected for the USA Baseball Collegiate National Team and the first since Andy Wilkins was picked for the team in 2009. Baxendale joins Arkansas head coach Dave Van Horn on this year’s team as an assistant coach.

A Jacksonville, Florida native, Baxendale is one of the most versatile pitchers in college baseball, seeing time in both the Razorbacks’ starting rotation and in the bullpen. Baxendale currently ranks third in the SEC with a 1.58 ERA and has a 7-1 record with two saves in 14 appearances, including eight starts. In 57 innings pitched this season, Baxendale has given up 14 runs, only 10 earned, and struck out 53 batters, while issuing 11 walks. Opponents are batting just .226 against the sophomore right hander.

The 2011 USA Baseball Collegiate National Team will get together on June 22. The team will play 11 games during the summer, culminating with a five-game series against Japan July 3-8. The series opens on July 3 at 3:05 p.m. at Durham Bulls Athletic Park in Durham, North Carolina. Additional players will be selected to the team in the absence of players on the 22-roster who are competing in Omaha at the NCAA College World Series.
