For all attending the Hot Stove Banquet on Saturday, have a good time!
As for me , I’m in Pittsburgh for a four-day weekend with friends so I’ll miss it. If anyone gets some good photos, contact me and we can post them here.
In related news, Coach Hartleb got some air time with Steve Kelly a couple days ago on NewsTalks 1400 Sports Talk. You know the Illini Baseball season is getting close when the local media begins covering the sport. Of course, Hartleb was plugging the Hot Stove Banquet but hit on the prospects of the 2012 season, the tougher 2012 schedule and even some MLB talk. Note: the Hartleb segment begins at about the 32:00 mark.
Also, some good news from Hartleb… the Banquet seems to be a sellout.
You can listen to the full episode at illinihq.com.
Practice begins today, baseball fans.
