    WFU cancelled the BC series and next week's Elon game.

    BC Baseball is ranked this week after sweeping Charleston Southern and taking 2 of 3 from Duke.

    They've already replaced our series with a trip to Auburn

    Covid saved Walter from an embarrassing season last year. Same thing may happen this year. I can see it playing out as, “ couldn’t get on track after the Covid delay, some key injuries, and guys pressing and trying to do too much.”

    Walter would be better suited “transitioning” to an athletic department role where his only job is to raise money which apparently he’s good at. Doesn’t know how to manage a game and convey a positive vibe to his team. Hire a young energetic coach with big league experience like Matt Antonelli and watch the program flourish.

    Wake is still very much thought of as a significant destination for HS baseball Players. ACC baseball is flat out a draw...no matter how poor a team. My kid is the catcher for a top 25 nationally ranked HS program (for whatever that's worth) and when kids talk about Wake they speak of Wake baseball with a shocking amount of reverence. One of his former travel ball teammates just committed to Wake.

    I have no idea how our on field performance can never match the quality of the kids we get.
    There never was much hope...

    100% agree with WCD.

    I have a HS kid that plays the travel baseball circuit, and the quality of prospects that WF gets is unreal, particularly compared to the on-the-field results. At the biggest tournaments, WF commitments are always among the highest touted and strongest performers; on par with Florida, UVA, LSU (name the school). For whatever reason, the caliber of WF baseball recruiting has only been getting stronger over the last 4 years. This 2021 WF team is loaded. WF Friday starter will be a first round pick; every draft eligible starting position player will be drafted, and the current freshman class is stacked. Barring mass injuries, like the one that ended Antonio Menendez's season, WF is going to have a ton players drafted/signed by MLB in July. Realize that it's early, but the difference between the WF talent level and on-the-field results is stunning, so far.
