Michigan baseball coach Erik Bakich is excited about his team's potential after a promising 2018 season.

Erik Bakich sees a lot of benefits to practicing outside in the wintertime. Even in Michigan.

Outfielder Jordan Nwogu was one of the best hitters for the Michigan baseball team last season, batting .349.

“The storyline of this team, I think, is guys who have been patient in our program that have waited their turn, so to speak,” said Michigan coach Erik Bakich. “I don’t envision a whole lot of newcomers emerging on the scene like we had last year. Last year the situation presented itself. We led the nation in draft picks the year before, after the 2017 season. We had 11 guys drafted, seven of them were juniors, all seven juniors signed. So the opportunity was there for freshmen to earn starting jobs.”

Michigan coach Erik Bakich praised his starting pitcher's toughness in his debut.

Thanks to a strong debut from Ben Dragani, Michigan beat Bowling Green, 5-4.
