Mack Ade - Rice, Stoney Brook, D1 Pitchers


Nobody expected that much out of Rice this year. Baseball America had them ranked 18th in their pre-season poll, but that might have more out of the name of the prestigious school than the actual projected results of the players on the team. There was absolutely no single everyday player on the roster that jumped out at you as a potential baseball star, so, as usual, any success this team was going to have was going to have to come via their pitching staff.

David Aardsma, Phillp Humber, Jeff Niemann, Andrew Benak, J.T. Chargois, Tony Cingrani, Mathew Reckling… the names go on and on. Rice University may have the reputation of producing the best crop of pitchers of any major university regardless of their outcoming in the pros.
So, once again the Owls would have to turn to the pitchers to get them off to a good pre-conference schedule of tough teams like Stanford, Dallas Baptist, and Hawaii
