The 2019 Fall Ball season came to a close with two exhibition games vs. UCSD. There was a lot of good, some bad and a little ugly. Our take:
The college baseball coaching carousel for Cal State Fullerton finally came to a stop with the news breaking that Andy Jenkins, former assistant coach for Oregon State, will join the Titan Baseball coaching staff to fill the vacated Volunteer Assistant role. Former Titan Tyler Pill also joins the coaching staff as an undergraduate assistant.
Despite dropping the UC Irvine series, there were bright spots this past weekend including Mitch Berryhill leading the nation in batting average, pitcher Titus Groeneweg got to swing a bat and Grand Canyon was added to the schedule.
Mitchell Berryhill remains red hot & has the 4th highest batting average in the nation, Kameron Guangorena had himself a career day on Saturday, Titan team ERA is north of 5 and three Titan Baseball streaks could come to a crashing end this season.
Reports are surfacing that Troy Buckley’s firing may not have been because of a lousy win/loss record but rather workplace violence against a university employee, throwing intentionally at players during batting practice and a cheating scandal that was covered up.
