ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE)- Today the fourth time reigning Mountain West Champion Lobos hosted their 2015 Media Day. It gave us a chance to sit and talk with Coach Ray Birmingham who is very excited about this upcoming season.
He has a roster filled with younger guys, but he also has some studs returning to the lineup, and he has one of the best bullpens in the Mountain West.
Coach Birmingham also believes that this group is one of the best he has seen in the past years in pitching and on the defensive side. “Overall, Overall as of every position everyone can play great D, and the pitching staff there are a whole lot of guys. There is 7 or 8 guys that can really pitch”, said Birmingham.
The Lobos hit the diamond in the Surprise Tournament on the 13th against a tough Michigan State team. Coaches and players alike are excited to test out their new freshman players, and take on some of the best competition in NCAA.
