College Baseball Top 25 Released

Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and sub-freezing temperatures?  It does not have the same ring to it, but fans of the Michigan State baseball team are getting closer to experiencing warmer temperatures and watching their Spartans play ball.

As we enter the spring semester, there are a few storylines that have sprung up here in late January. The first one being that the Spartans have begun team practices as confirmed here by head coach Jake Boss’s Twitter account: Read More…

Spartans Make a Splash with Seven Letters of Intent

In a relatively quiet offseason so far for Michigan State baseball, the Spartans made some noise with the signings of seven highly regarded prospects for the 2015-2016 year.  These seven players signed to National Letters of Intent fill a need the Spartans will have following this season according to head coach Jake Boss.

“This is another talented class that addresses the needs we will have going into the 2015-2016 year and, most importantly, six young men are from the Midwest, with four calling the state of Michigan home,” Boss said. “All seven of these student-athletes will represent Michigan State in a positive way moving forward, and we are thrilled to call them Spartans.” Read More…

Follow the Leader

Following our offseason update podcast last week, I wanted to address an issue that came up often during last season: leadership.

Leadership is an intangible quality that you either have or you do not, and last year, this Michigan State baseball team was lacking some true leaders. During tough games against Central Michigan (0-3 record against Central during the season) and in four extra-inning games (0-4 on season) there was little leadership presence to speak of. Read More…

Central Completes Season Sweep of MSU

Blowing leads in late innings has been a problem all year long for the Spartans. And after the Clash at Comerica between MSU and the Central Michigan Chippewas, it is apparent that the problem has yet to be fixed.

“(We) let it get away from us in the eighth, something that’s happened on more than one occasion this year,” coach Jake Boss said. “It’s very frustrating.” Read More…

Spartan Baseball Drops Close Game to Nebraska

If only MSU was playing horseshoes and hand grenades.

The stage was set — alumni day, sunny and beautiful weather, and a big crowd. It was the perfect day for a MSU win but the Spartans fell short, 5-3, in the first game of a three-game series versus Nebraska.

It was a close game, but there was no ‘W’. And coach Jake Boss was frustrated after the loss. Read More…

Close Game Escapes Sparty

Michigan State began its first Big Ten home series against the Purdue Boilermakers with its ace on the mound whom in his last outing flirted with perfection through five innings. In Friday’s outing however, he flirted with disaster.

Mick VanVossen gave up two early runs in the game, and the Spartans never really seemed to be able to recover. They made multiple mental mistakes and could not come through in the clutch with runners in scoring position.
