Tonight we welcomed into the program College of Charleston Head Baseball Coach, Monte Lee. Lee joined us to give us his preseason synopsis on his Cougars headed into opening weekend. The college of knowledge will be hosting Xavier to kick of the 2013 season.
AUDIO: Monte Lee [9:35]
In Lee’s four years on the job, his squad has been really competitive. The Cougs have made the tournament twice during his tenure, and CofC won the Southern Conference regular season championship last year. We asked coach tonight if this is the year they can finally make the jump to Omaha.
Coach gave us the once-over regarding all the off-season roster moves. He’s got a fair amount of new faces that will be seeing some quality time on the diamond this season, including his rotation and bullpen. Lee also provides what we can expect to be the strength of his squad in ’13.
First pitch against Xavier at Patriots Point is Friday at 6:00.
