‘We just want to win baseball games’: Nebraska begins 2023 practice

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN)  –The sun came out just in time for opening day of practice for Nebraska baseball. The Huskers season starts on Feb. 17 with a four-game series at the University of San Diego.

This is the 3rd straight year Nebraska baseball has more than 20 new faces on the roster but based on the fun had on the field today, those new faces fit right in.

The new-look roster includes 25 new players in total including a group of nationally-ranked transfers and a stand-out freshman class.

Fourth-year head coach Will Bolt says despite the new group, he’s happy with the chemistry his guys have developed.

“I feel like we had a lot of guys come in that fit what we’re trying to do from a culture standpoint and they’ve really meshed,” Bolt said. “It’s been a fun group to be around.”

Nebraska is coming off a 23-30 record and a season where they didn’t qualify for the Big Ten tournament.

Young players like freshman pitcher Caleb Clark say the edge the older guys feel from that disappointing season is already rubbing off on them.

“You could tell a lot of the guys that were here last year did not enjoy what happened last year,” Clark said. “They really want to get back to that 2021 team. I think a lot of the guys that came back and also came in as well, we all have that same mentality of like we just want to win baseball games and we don’t care what else happens.”
