.......... and I almost as big of news is that Orel is taking a very active part! :supz: :supz:


Is he? I hadn't heard that. What sort of role is he taking? Having him involved would be huge for the sustainability of the program.

Very glad baseball is staying. I hope they are able to keep a good number of the players and field a competitive team in 2021.


He is exactly the kind of person they need heading this up if it is to survive long-term. As most of you know, I created a baseball scholarship and hadn't done anything with it since the first announcement was made, so it remains in force and can help students for 3 years and beyond (if there's a program.) That said, I do not trust this Board of Trustees on anything, and certainly not on this matter. I hope I'm wrong...

Hope they haven’t lost TOO many kids already. I’ve heard several have already transferred or are planning to do so. This includes two brothers who hoped to play together which won’t happen now unless the younger bro follows older to Mich st.

All of the remaining players still have the option to leave without having to sit out a year, so the bleeding might continue.

Fantastic news. I bet this can be used as a massive recruiting pitch. BG was not the only program cutting sports. Baseball alums and fans rallied to save the program. Come to BG where a lot of people care about the program.

If I were a recruit, I'd be nervous that there's no plan in place to have a team my junior and senior seasons. I'd feel a lot better with a school that picked a different sport to cut.

I’d be much more worried about non revenue sports that don’t have a plan in place to raise funds, and revenue sports that have done little to help themselves.

Maybe BGSU should cut some other sports so that alums can mobilize and raise funds to bring back those programs as well. Seems like a great money-maker. :wink:

More or less at 1:30 in this video that is what is implied for all programs at BGSU, including academic programs. Look for some aggressive fundraising coming our way.

I didn't see anyone post this, so I figured I'd toss this information into this post:

Coach Danny Schmitz is stepping into a new role with the program as an advisor, and Kyle Hallock (2011 Kent State All-American), the BGSU pitching coach since September of 2018, was named the new head coach of the BGSU Baseball program. He's 31-years old, and he's from Sandusky, OH.

I've seen multiple guys who had chosen to transfer that have said they are returning next season, as well. I know Jeremy Spezia had said he was going to GVSU, but he announced he's coming back the other day. Rigo Ramos also announced he was staying.

Almost all originally went in the transfer portal, and all but 2-3 are returning including all three 2020 recruits and most of the 2021 recruits have reconfirmed their commitment.

I also saw that Dylan Dohanos, who is from BG and stayed home to play at BGSU, has reaffirmed his commitment to stay and play for the Falcons. He's a really good player, so I was happy to see he's staying.
