COLUMBIA, Mo. - The Mizzou baseball team will wrap up its fall practice schedule by playing the Fall World Series over the next two weeks, beginning Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at Taylor Stadium. The Tigers will split their team into a Black Team and a Gold Team over the two-week event as they will play four games this week.
In addition to Tuesday's game, the two teams will face off on Wednesday (Oct. 20) and Saturday (Oct. 22) at 3:15 p.m. and 6 p.m., respectively. The teams will then play game four of the Fall World Series on Sunday at 1 p.m. The Fall World Series will then conclude next week with three games, beginning Tuesday (Oct. 25) at 6 p.m. The teams will then play on Wednesday (Oct. 26) at 6 p.m. and the finale will be contested on Friday (Oct. 28) at 2:30 p.m.
As mentioned above, Mizzou head coach Tim Jamieson has split the team into two separate teams for the Fall World Series. The Gold Team will be managed by assistant coach Kerrick Jackson while graduate assistant Travis Wendte will serve as the team's pitching coach. Volunteer assistant Hunter Mense will be an assistant coach with the Gold Team.
Notable Tigers donning the gold jerseys for the Fall World Series will be returning Friday night starter Eric Anderson, 2011 MLB Draft selection Conner Mach and Blake Brown, who led the Tigers in home runs and stolen bases in 2011. Also, last year's starting catcher Ben Turner will play with the Gold Team along with two of the team's top returning relievers in Jeff Emens and Dusty Ross.
The Black Team will be coached by assistant coach Dan Pietroburgo while the Tigers' current pitching coach Matt Hobbs will occupy the same role with the Black Team. Last year's Big 12 Tournament hero Kelly Fick - who threw seven shutout innings against top-seeded Texas in an elimination game - will also serve as an assistant coach with the Black Team. The Black Team features four returning position players from a season ago in Brannon Champagne, Eric Garcia, Dane Opel and Scott Sommerfeld. Also, sophomore lefty Rob Zastryzny will anchor the pitching staff for the Black Team.
