Citadel prepares for upcoming baseball season

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) -- The Citadel returns seven position starters and most of its pitching staff as it attempts to return to the top of the Southern Conference for the first time since 2010. The Bulldogs do lost two of their top  hitters in outfielders Justin Mackert and Nick Orvin, but the combination of  returning players, a key position change and an influx of talented freshmen  makes this a lineup that will match up well against both right handers and  lefties.

”The surprise is more that it hasn’t been investigated before,” says invertebrate zoologist John Zardus of The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. The discovery “is a good example of how we can get stuck thinking inside the box.”  Biologists have certainly recognized that barnacles are in a fix:  The crustaceans essentially glue themselves head-end down in one spot for their entire adult lives, which can last decades.

Here’s his take on a Citadel player he’s fairly familiar with: “I think four years away from the game has dulled a little bit of his skills,” Elmore said. “He was a pretty good scorer in high school, and I’d like to see him develop into more of a scoring threat. I think the Georgia Tech game was a good example of what he can do.”
