Baseball fields in New England still look like this one at the University of Rhode Island, but a little further south, there’s a green light for baseball. The college baseball season gets underway today.
I’ll be keeping tabs as we go along here and get closer to the summer. For your first weekend of the baseball season, there’s plenty to watch — I’ll be eager to see how Sean Manaea performs in his first start, which comes tonight at 7 p.m. when his Indiana State team takes on IPFW.
