49-7. That, ladies and gentlemen, is the combined record of the #1 ranked baseball (24-3) and #6 ranked softball team (25-4). If you have not had the opportunity to check either of these teams out, before any of you go home for the summer in another month seriously take advantage of the opportunity to see two of the nation’s finest.
With that in mind, this weekend’s matchups are probably the biggest/most hyped pairings I have seen in quite some time. #2 LSU (according to the Baseball America Poll, they are #5 in the other major polls) comes into town to play the #1 baseball team, with the first game starting at 7 pm tonight and the #6 softball team (which is the 2nd highest ranking in school history) travels to #4 Alabama, with the 3-game series starting tomorrow afternoon at 2pm.
The baseball and softball team are both 7-2 in the SEC and with each of their seasons about a third of the way into conference play, this weekend’s games become that much more important when it comes to the big picture. Tickets to either of their games are free and I will be the first to tell you that I have had a blast sitting back and enjoying some high-quality baseball over my tenure at UGA.
