Contact Baseball Media Relations Director Jeremy Foote at (402) 472-7778 for more information. Media Services: The Nebraska baseball press box is located on the second level of Haymarket Park.

Telephones are provided in the press box and are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with collect or credit card access. The main press box phone number is (402) 434-6861. A fax machine is available at the Media Relations Office (One Memorial Stadium) and requests should be made to Jeremy Foote before or during the game. A phone line is available for both home and visiting radios.

Broadcast Rights: The University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the IMG Husker Sports Network own exclusive radio broadcast rights to all of the University of Nebraska baseball games. Other than the Husker Sports Network and KRNU (the University of Nebraska student station), the only stations or networks that will be allowed to broadcast Nebraska baseball games from Hawks Field at Haymarket Park are those that have rights to broadcast games played by the opposing team. All radio stations and networks broadcasting from Haymarket Park must sign a contract with the University and are subject to a rights fee. Any representative of a radio station or network that has not purchased such rights shall not air live game action or description of any game while it is in progress, nor shall such representatives air tape-recorded or live commentary of Nebraska coaches or players for one hour before and 1/2 hour after a game. Only stations that have purchased broadcast rights may install telephones in the press box, or use telephones in the press box for reporting on games. By accepting media credentials, representatives of stations and networks that have not purchased broadcast rights signify their agreement to the above stipulations. Abuse of this rule will result in the loss of press credentials for both regular season and any postseason contests. Telephones and Internet Access: Telephones are provided in the press box and are available on a first-come, first-served basis, with collect or credit card access. The main press box phone number is (402) 434-6861. The press box at Hawks Field at Haymarket Park also is on a secured wireless network. For more information on the network, contact Assistant Media Relations Director Jeremy Foote. Broadcast Telephone Lines: Visiting radio stations are welcome to have their own telephone lines installed in the press box and may do so by contacting University of Nebraska Information Services (402) 472-2000. However, the Husker Sports Network installs ISDN lines for visiting official broadcasts and charges a fee for the use of those lines for non-conference games (Big Ten official stations receive the use of the lines free of charge as part of a cooperative). Stations interested in using the lines should contact Mike Elliott of the Husker Sports Network at (402) 438-0225 or by e-mail at Mike.Elliott@imgworld.com.

NCAA Compliance Guidelines NCAA Principles • NCAA Definitions • Guidelines and Reminders for Boosters The University of Nebraska Athletic Department takes great pride in abiding by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the Big Ten Conference rules and guidelines that govern Division I competition. For the benefit of the many alumni, fans and booster club members who are so active in supporting and assisting the Huskers throughout the year, we would like to remind everyone of a few definitions and rules that apply to all athletic representatives and boosters.

NCAA Principles

Institutional Control It is the responsibility of the University of Nebraska to control its intercollegiate athletic program in compliance with the rules and regulations of the NCAA. Responsibility The University of Nebraska’s responsibility for the conduct of its program includes responsibility for the actions of its staff members and for the actions of any other individual, booster or organization engaged in activities promoting the athletic interests of the institution. Compliance The University of Nebraska must monitor its program to assure compliance and to identify and report to the NCAA instances in which compliance has not been achieved. An institution found to have violated NCAA rules is subject to disciplinary and corrective actions as determined by the NCAA.

Question and Answers for Fans, Boosters, Alumni and Representatives of Athletic Interests

Definitions Q: What is a booster? A: Someone who belongs to a University of Nebraska athletic booster club; promotes or makes financial donations to the athletic department or a specific Husker team; assists in the recruitment of prospective student-athletes; employs, gives benefits to, or provides services to a student-athlete, a prospective student-athlete or the relative/friends of either. REPRESENTATIVE OF ATHLETIC INTERESTS (I.E., BOOSTERS), NCAA BYLAW 13 Q: What is a Prospective Student-Athlete? A: A prospective student-athlete is a student who has started classes for the ninth grade or above, including students in prep schools and junior colleges as well as students who have officially withdrawn from a four-year institution and plan to transfer to another institution. In addition, a student who has not started classes for the ninth grade becomes a prospective student-athlete if the institution or a Nebraska booster provides the individual or the individual’s relatives or friends with any financial assistance or benefits that the institution does not provide to prospective students in general. A good rule of thumb is to treat ALL STUDENTS as prospects. Q: What is a Student-Athlete? A: A student-athlete is a student whose enrollment was solicited by a member of the Nebraska athletic staff or other representative of athletic interests with a view toward the student’s ultimate participation in the intercollegiate athletic program. Q: What is a contact? A: Contact is ANY face-to-face encounter between a prospect, or the prospect’s parent or legal guardian, and a Nebraska staff member or athletic representative during which any dialogue occurs. Q: What is recruiting? A: Recruiting is any solicitation of a prospect or a prospect’s family member (or guardian) by an institutional staff member or by athletic representative of the institution, for the purpose of securing the prospect’s enrollment and ultimate participation in Nebraska’s intercollegiate athletic program.

Guidelines Q: What is a Booster? A: Someone who belongs to a University of Nebraska athletic booster club; promotes or makes financial donations to the athletic department or a specific Husker team; assists in the recruitment of prospective student-athletes; employs, gives benefits to, or provides services to a student-athlete, a prospective student-athlete or the relative/friends of either. REPRESENTATIVE OF ATHLETIC INTERESTS (I.E., BOOSTERS), NCAA BYLAW 13 Q: What constitutes impermissible contact by a Booster? A: Phone calls to prospects (9th to 12th grade) and their relatives placed for recruiting purposes (questions about the athletic program at UNL must be directed to the coach); writing, paging, text messages or instant messages to a prospect to encourage UNL attendance; contact with a prospect at a high school or club contest; contact with a prospect or his/her coach, principal, or counselor to evaluate the prospect; visiting the prospect’s educational institution to pick up videotape or transcripts for evaluation purposes; contacting a prospect to congratulate him/her for signing a National Letter of Intent to attend UNL; giving anything of value to a prospect to induce him/her to attend UNL; contact of any kind while the prospect is on the UNL campus for an official or unofficial visit. RECRUITING CONTACTS, NCAA BYLAW 13 Q: What are the rules of employment for a student-athlete? A: A student-athlete may be employed during the academic year or summer vacation period; receive compensation equal to the going rate for similar services in the locale; receive compensation only for work performed; accept employment from more than one employer and earn unlimited income; receive benefits provided to all other employees; teach sport-related individual skill instruction or fee-for-lesson sessions. A student-athlete may not conduct personal sport camps or promote, market, advertise or endorse a commercial business or product. Only benefits that are authorized by NCAA legislation shall be provided to and accepted by a student-athlete. It is not permissible for a student-athlete to receive a benefit that is the result of a “special” arrangement by an institutional employee, booster, employer or fan. EMPLOYMENT, NCAA BYLAW 12 Q: What are non-permissible benefits? A: Free or reduced-fee housing/rent including the use of vacation or seasonal homes; free or reduced-fee meals; loans or cash advances in pay or salary; tuition costs or school supply expenses; gifts or presents of any type regardless of the occasion or purpose; use of telephone for long distance or use of telephone cards and cell phones; free use of any motor vehicle, boat or recreational vehicle; free use of services (i.e., automobile repair, hair care, laundry, copying, faxing, etc.); free or reduced-fee memberships at golf courses, health clubs, etc. (This list is not exhaustive. Only benefits that are authorized by NCAA legislation shall be provided to and accepted by a student-athlete. It is not permissible for a student-athlete to receive a benefit that is the result of a “special” arrangement by an institutional employee, booster, employer or fan.) BENEFITS AND PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT, NCAA BYLAW 16 Q: What type of promotional activities may the student-athlete be permitted to participate? A: Charitable, educational or non-profit promotions and events with requested approval from the Athletic Compliance Office prior to the event. Q: What types of promotional activities are not permissible? A: Any fundraising activity that supports a high school organization or group that assists prospective-aged students; use of his/her name or picture; or appear to promote or market a commercial business or product. PROMOTIONAL ACTIVITIES, NCAA BYLAW 12 For further information regarding NCAA Guidelines for Athletic Representatives, please contact the athletic compliance office at (402) 472-2042 or 1-(800) 927-7220. Inquiries may also be mailed to: Athletic Compliance Office, One Memorial Stadium, P.O. Box 880219, Lincoln, NE, 68588-0219.

Since its opening in 2002, Hawks Field at Haymarket Park has been one of college baseball’s best ballparks. Set on 32 acres one-half mile west of campus near downtown, the complex combines private and public entities, giving the University of Nebraska and the City of Lincoln a one-of-a-kind facility for the Huskers and the Lincoln Saltdogs of the American Association of Independent League Professional Baseball. On July 30, 1999, the University of Nebraska, the City of Lincoln and NEBCO Inc., announced plans to construct two new stadiums, an 8,500-seat ballpark for the Husker baseball program and the Saltdogs – marking professional baseball’s return to the Star City for the first time in 40 years – and a 2,500-seat softball stadium located next door. Building a complex for the Huskers, as well as the Saltdogs, whose season runs from Memorial Day to Labor Day, required leadership and a forward-thinking vision from all three entities. The $29.53 million cost was primarily divided between the city, NEBCO and the University with additional sources contributing for the rest of the project. In March of 2000, Howard and Myrna Hawks guaranteed UNL’s commitment to the baseball/softball project, enabling the University to move forward on the complex on schedule. An avid supporter of the Husker baseball program, Myrna Hawks never had the opportunity to see the finished product, as she passed away on Jan. 24, 2001. In her honor, the playing surface was named Hawks Field in February of 2002 and was formally dedicated on April 28, 2002, before a doubleheader

2014 NEBRASKA BASEBALL I HUSKERS.COM I THISISNEBRASKA.COM

against Kansas. “She was a baseball fanatic,” Howard Hawks said of his wife of 45 years. “She went to baseball games before we were married, but I know that after we were married, she never went to a game where she didn’t keep score. “She felt you didn’t really know what had happened if you didn’t know how this guy hit last time, and how they pitched to him, so she kept track of all those things.” The DLR Group was hired to be the principal designer of the ballparks, as well as the plaza between the two fields, and to create a design unique for Lincoln. Early on, one of the goals of the project was to enhance

the experience for the fans who attend games at the new park. According to the DLR Group, the intimate atmosphere at Haymarket Park was intentional. “One of the primary concepts driving this whole facility was to create a ‘park within a park,’ which meant the fans would be able to view the action from anywhere in the park,” says Pat Phelan, principal project manager at the DLR Group in Omaha. “There’s an open concourse, so when fans are waiting in line for concessions or restrooms, they can still see the field from there. There’s also a bermed seating area around the outside of the park, so you can literally walk around

Myrna and Howard Hawks were long-time supporters of the Husker baseball program and were instrumental in getting Haymarket Park built. The field is named after Myrna, who passed away on Jan. 24, 2001.

the perimeter of the diamond while viewing the action, but you’re still within the confines of the stadium.” In the months leading up to the start of construction in April of 2000, former Nebraska Baseball Coach Dave Van Horn and Saltdogs President Charlie Meyer toured many of the top minor league facilities in the country, looking for ideas that could be implemented in the new ballpark. The influences of parks such as the Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City, Victory Field in Indianapolis and Franklin Covey Field in Salt Lake City, are evident throughout the structure. The exterior is a red-brick facade, while the spacious concourse level is highlighted by exposed ironwork. The playing surface is nestled in a bowl, allowing berm seating along both lines and throughout the outfield and a raised batter’s eye consisting of pine trees in center field. The features make Haymarket Park a first-class facility. The ballpark’s setting also allowed the designers to use Memorial Stadium and downtown Lincoln to provide a picturesque backdrop in the outfield. There is also a pedestrian connector that allows fans to make the walk from downtown Lincoln to the center field entrance of Haymarket Park. The park features many fan-friendly amenities, including 4,419 chair-back seats on two levels in the main seating bowl, 16 suites, a towering video board/scoreboard in right center field, the Buck Beltzer Playground for kids down the right field line and numerous restrooms and concession stands. In 2009, the facility added seating in right field, as the Husker Home Run Terrace bringing more fans closer to the action. Hawks Field at Haymarket Park was selected as the best playing surface in each of its nine years of existence. In November of 2007, Hawks Field received another honor, as it won the Baseball Field of the Year Award in the College/University division by the Sports Turf Managers Association (STMA) for the second

time. The field earned its first honor in 2003 and is the only college park in the country to be a two-time winner. In the fall of 2008, the field was completely resurfaced while the underground drainage system was improved, making the field more playable during the early spring months. The ballpark is more than a playing field for the Huskers. It includes medical and laundry facilities, coaches’ offices and a 1,400-square foot locker room and adjacent clubhouse, giving the Husker program one of the best baseball setups in the country. The clubhouse was completely renovated in January of 2010, with a new entryway, remodeled player lockers, new locker chairs, electronic reclining theater seating, a team dining area, two 25-inch touch-screen monitors, a new video messaging system and a gaming area. In the fall of 2011, construction was completed on the $4.75 million Alex Gordon Training Complex, an indoor practice facility to the north of Hawks Field. The 22,000-square foot building features a large practice area, along with restrooms and storage facilities. The space is lined with netting, allowing for the entire area to be used for live batting practice and game simulation. Prior to the start of the 2012 season, a new 17 x 34-foot LED videoboard was installed that is nearly three times the size of the stadium’s original board. The Huskers have enjoyed their new home, posting a 261-95-1 (.732) record at Hawks Field over the past 12 years, including a school-record 33-4 mark in 2005 and a 29-5-1 mark in 2008. Fans have also turned out in record numbers, as Nebraska has ranked among the nation’s top 25 schools in average attendance since 2002. In 2006, Nebraska set a singleseason attendance record by averaging 5,092 fans per game. NU also established a singlegame record with a crowd of 8,757 against Texas A&M on April 14, 2006.

In addition to the other amenities, the ballpark features the Buck Beltzer Playground. Named in honor of a former Husker baseball captain and Grand Island businessman, the enclosed park includes a padded surface for safety.

THREE COLLEGE WORLD SERIES APPEARANCES

Hunger for Postseason Drives Huskers in 2014 Third-year Head Coach Darin Erstad returns a strong core from his 2013 squad that came up two wins shy of earning a share of the Big Ten regular-season title and was one win away from winning the Huskers’ first conference tournament title since 2005. Nebraska returns five position starters from a year ago, including All-Big Ten performers Pat Kelly (2B), Blake Headley (3B) and Michael Pritchard (OF/DH), along with catcher Tanner Lubach, who made 46 starts in 2013, and junior outfielder Austin Darby, who has made 85 starts during his first two seasons in Lincoln. But the biggest return from 2013 is not one player, it’s a trio, as the Huskers return their weekend rotation of senior Christian DeLeon, as well as juniors Kyle Kubat and Aaron Bummer. It is the most stable the Huskers’ rotation has been since 2005 to 2006, when Nebraska returned Joba Chamberlain and Johnny Dorn, while replacing Zach Kroenke with Tony Watson. Nebraska will need to replace an eight-member senior class from a year ago that accounted for 147 wins and six all-conference honors during its time at Nebraska. The Huskers will try to help do that with one of the strongest recruiting classes in recent memory. The class was ranked 11th nationally by Baseball America, the highest ranking in school history.

Pitching Coach Ted Silva will have 19 pitchers to work with in 2014. The balanced staff includes 10 right-handed arms and nine southpaws, allowing the Huskers to create match-up problems for opposing hitters.

the seventh most in school history, and he was the first pitcher to make 30 trips to the mound since Brett Jensen made 33 in 2005. Josh Roeder is expected to get the first shot at the closer role after converting six saves in 2013. The junior led the team with a 1.74 ERA last season, while notching 29 strikeouts in 31.0 innings of work. Prior to Roeder entering the game, the Huskers may look to righty Luke Bublitz or lefty Zach Hirsch. Bublitz made a careerhigh 24 appearances in 2013 and was nearly untouchable at the Big Ten Tournament. The senior earned a pair of wins out of the bullpen, as he threw 6.0 innings of scoreless relief over four appearances, while giving up just three hits and one walk. Hirsch was on his way to finding his niche in the Husker bullpen, but an injury to his non-throwing wrist at practice forced him to miss the final 31 games of the season. The 6-4 lefty lowered his ERA from 7.53 to 4.78 over his final five appearances and gave up just two earned runs over his final 12.0 innings of action. The Huskers will also need to lean on senior Tyler King, as well as sophomores Jeff Chesnut and Colton Howell, while eight newcomers find their role in the staff. Two newcomers who will be expected to contribute right away are junior Chance Sinclair and senior Bob Greco. Sinclair joined the Huskers after spending two seasons at Neosho County Community College, where he was the Panthers’ 2012-13 Male Student Athlete of the Year. The 6-4 righty set multiple school records during his two-year stint, including career wins with 18. Greco used three years of eligibility at Bellevue University where he was a two-time NAIA honorable-mention AllAmerican. The Papillion native could be used in a variety of ways after throwing 92.2 innings in 2013 over 11 starts. Six freshmen will battle for time on the mound in 2014, and with a coaching staff where playing time is earned and not handed out, each will have the opportunity to prove they should have the ball in their hand.

The group is headlined by the returning weekend rotation of Christian DeLeon, Kyle Kubat and Aaron Bummer, who combined to go 15-5 a year ago with a 2.66 ERA and five shutouts, including one no-hitter.

Unlike last season when Erstad didn’t have a catcher on the roster who had caught a game at Nebraska, the Huskers return two backstops with starting experience in Tanner Lubach and Taylor Fish, while adding freshman Beau Fandel.

Overall, the Huskers return arms that account for over 65% of the team’s inning pitched last season, while closer Dylan Vogt is the only departed pitcher who had an ERA under 5.00 last season.

After earning second-team NJCAA All-American honors as a freshman at Hutchinson Community College in 2012, Lubach became the Huskers’ primary catcher in 2013. The Lincoln native found his rhythm at the plate late in the year, as he hit .308 in the month of May, including a walk-off home run against Indiana at the Big Ten Tournament.

Speaking of Vogt, the Huskers will need to find a new closer as the Omaha native converted eight saves over 30 appearances a year ago. His 30 appearances were tied for

Fish is in his third year in the program and continues to improve offensively and defensively. The Kearney product made 11 starts over 16 games of action last season following a redshirt season in 2012. Ranked as one of the top 10 players out of the state of Minnesota, Fandel will not be expected to step in an play right away in 2014. He will have the opportunity to learn how to catch at the collegiate level from third-year volunteer assistant Jeff Christy, who played in the Minnesota Twins organization after catching a school-record 64 games on Nebraska’s 2005 College World Series team.

* - will miss the 2014 season following a knee injury during the Fall of 2013.

While the Huskers return a pair of all-conference performers at second and third base in Pat Kelly and Blake Headley, respectively, Erstad and Associate Head Coach Will Bolt need to find new gloves at both first base and shortstop. Following the departure of senior and two-time MLB draftee Kash Kalkowski, Husker fans will see a new face at first base for the third straight season after Kalkowski took over for Richard Stock following the 2012 season when Stock signed a MLB contract with the Cleveland Indians. Austin Christensen is expected to get the first shot at first base after missing the last two seasons with injury. Christensen had Tommy John surgery during the Fall of 2012 and is now ready to get on the field for the Huskers. Along with a solid stick at the plate, Christensen provides a big 6-5 frame at first base. At shortstop, Nebraska will look to sophomore returnee Jake Placzek and Santa Barbara City College transfer Steven Reveles to take over for the departed Bryan Peters and sophomore Wes Edrington, who had knee surgery during the Fall and is expected to miss the 2014 campaign. Placzek made 15 starts last season as a true freshman, while Reveles was named a California Community College Athletic Association All-American after hitting .305 and leading the Western State Conference with 30 stolen bases. Kelly, an All-America candidate, has a firm hold at second base where he was a first-team All-Big Ten pick last season. The junior from Red Wing, Minn., led the team in 2013 in hits with 85, while ranking third in batting average (.331), RBIs (33) and doubles (12). He also produced a team-high 175 assists on the year, tying him for sixth all-time in the Husker single-season record book. Following an injury to senior Josh Scheffert just 20 games into the 2013 season, Headley took over at third base and excelled. He was selected third-team All-Big Ten after hitting .337 in 23 Big Ten games with four doubles and 14 RBIs, while committing

just three errors all season, the fewest for any third baseman in the league. Along with Reveles, other newcomers include Michael Klein, Matt Leuty, Ben Miller and Bryce Only. Each will provide depth during the year and all have the ability to battle for playing time.

With just three returning outfielders from a year ago and three newcomers, there will be stiff competition for NU’s three outfield spots. The Huskers’ will have Michael Pritchard’s bat in the lineup, but the senior from Omaha could be used in left field or as the squad’s designated hitter. He served as the DH for most of last season with Chad Christensen, now a member of the Minnesota Twins organization, roaming in left field. However, Pritchard did take over in left when Christensen moved to right following an injury to now departed all-conference center fielder Rich Sanguinetti. Austin Darby is likely to get the start in either right or center field, as the junior started most of the 2013 season in right field before moving to center when Sanguinetti got hurt. Darby possesses all the tools in the outfield, combining speed, instincts and a strong arm. Kildow is the other returner of the group and will battle for time in center field. During his two years in the program the senior has played in 39 games, but mostly as a pinch runner due to his plus speed. Out of the newcomers, Christian Cox has the most experience following two years at Hutchinson Community College, where he played one season with NU catcher Tanner Lubach in 2011. A lefty, Cox possesses good speed and has a solid approach at the plate, evident by his .489 on-base percentage last year. A pair of freshmen round out the group, including Minnesota native Ryan Boldt and Wahoo, Neb., product Quinn McGill. Boldt will be expected to contribute the soonest after turning down a professional contract from the Boston Red Sox to instead play at Nebraska with his cousin, Pat Kelly. Boldt was also a member of Team USA’s 2012 Under-18 team that took gold at the XXV IBAF World Championships and was named MVP of the 2012 Perfect Game All-American Classic. McGill brings a good eye at the plate and above average speed to the field, as he stole a state-high 28 bases last season. He hit .470 during his prep career and struck out just three times during his senior season.

Huskers Tested Early and Often in 2014

The Huskers are set to play 56 games under third-year skipper Darin Erstad, including 27 games at Hawks Field. The Huskers will play 11 games against teams that qualified for the 2013 NCAA Tournament, including a pair of games with College World Series participant Oregon State. The Beavers enter the 2014 season ranked in the top-five nationally by most publications, including a No. 2 preseason ranking by Baseball America.

The Husker coaching staff scheduled a balanced non-conference slate with 15 games at home and 17 on the road, including seven neutral site games. The Huskers will again play eight Big Ten series, playing four each at home and on the road. After completing a two-year cycle of conference games, Nebraska faces Michigan State and Penn State for the first time in the regular season, while dropping series with Indiana and Purdue. The Huskers have never faced the Spartans or Nittany Lions during regular-season conference play, but have battled both squads at the Big Ten Tournament. After playing 19 of its first 24 games on the road last season, Nebraska starts the year with 10 straight games away from Lincoln, before returning to Hawks Field for 10 straight home games. Opening day for Nebraska is set for Friday, Feb. 14, at the Spring Training home of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Tempe Diablo Stadium in Tempe, Ariz., when the Huskers meet the Pacific Tigers.

The Bulldogs and Huskers open the three-game set at 4 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28, at Riley Park, before continuing the series with one game each on Saturday and Sunday. The Huskers’ home opener is set for Tuesday, March 4, at 1:35 p.m. when the Kansas State Wildcats visit Hawks Field. The Wildcats, who enter the season ranked 22nd by both Baseball America and Perfect Game, won the Big 12 regular-season title for the first time in 80 years last season and were also one win away from making a trip to the College World Series, but fell on the road to Oregon State at the Corvallis Super Regional.

Game one is set for 6:35 p.m. on Tuesday, April 1, with the second game set for 1:35 p.m. the next afternoon. Nebraska hosts it first Big Ten Conference series of the year on Friday, April 4, when the Ohio State Buckeyes visit Lincoln for the second straight season. In just two seasons as conference foes, the Huskers and Buckeyes have met nine times, including three times at the Big Ten Tournament. The Huskers then play their next four games on the road, starting with their first trip of the season to TD Ameritrade Park on Tuesday, April 8, for a 6:30 p.m. game with Creighton. The week concludes with a three-game conference series in Minneapolis, Minn., with the Minnesota Golden Gophers that starts on Friday, April 11. Following a pair of non-conference games with Kansas State and UNO, the Northwestern Wildcats open a three-game series in Lincoln starting on Friday, April 18, at 6:35 p.m. Nebraska then heads back to the road with a trip to Ann Arbor, Mich., to face the Michigan Wolverines. The three game series opens on Friday, April 25, with first pitch scheduled for 5 p.m. Nebraska heads to Omaha on consecutive nights, starting on Tuesday, April 29, with a second trip to TD Ameritrade Park to face the Bluejays. The Huskers will be in Omaha the following night as well, but will be at Werner Park to battle UNO at 6:30 p.m. The month of May consists of only Big Ten action, as the Huskers end the 2014 regular season with nine straight conference games. The Penn State Nittany Lions open the month of May on Friday, May 2, at 6:35 p.m. with the first of three games at Hawks Field. It is the first-ever series between the two teams.

Following two days off after hosting the Wildcats, Nebraska welcomes the St. John’s Red Storm from the newly formed Big East Conference for a three-game series. The series opens at 1:35 p.m. on Friday, March 7. The teams then meet at 1:05 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.

Nebraska then makes its first Big Ten trip to East Lansing, Mich., the following weekend for three games with the Michigan State Spartans, starting at 2:05 p.m. on Saturday, May 10, at McLane Baseball Stadium. The series is set to run Saturday-SundayMonday.

Northern Colorado then comes to Lincoln for a pair of games on Tuesday, March 11, and Wednesday, March 12, before the UC Irvine Anteaters open a three-game series at Hawks Field on Friday, March 14, at 4:35 p.m.

The 2014 regular season comes to a close with a three-game series against the Illinois Fighting Illini. After opening Big Ten play with the Illini the past two seasons, the two teams will instead end the regular season starting on Thursday, May 15, at 6:35 p.m. The three-game set continues on Friday night at 6:35 p.m. and ends on Saturday at 1:05 p.m.

The 10-game home stand concludes on Tuesday, March 18, with the first of three meetings throughout the season with the Creighton Bluejays. First pitch is set for 6:35 p.m. With 20 non-conference games in the books, the Huskers open Big Ten play in Iowa City, Iowa, on Friday, March 21, at 3 p.m. with a three-game set against the Iowa Hawkeyes. It marks the second straight season that Huskers have traveled to Iowa City, with the Huskers taking 2-of-3 at Duane Banks Field a year ago.

Nebraska will look to qualify for the Big Ten Tournament for the third straight season, which is being held at TD Ameritrade Park in 2014.

Darin Erstad

#17

Head Coach • Third Year Darin Erstad was named the 23rd head coach of the Nebraska baseball program - and the fifth since 1947 - on June 2, 2011. Erstad took over a team in 2012 that had failed to qualify for the postseason the previous three seasons and was making a move from the Big 12 to the Big Ten Conference. While the squad fell short of qualifying for the NCAA Tournament in 2012, improvement could be seen across the board, and the Huskers played in a conference tournament for the first time since 2008. Nebraska returned to the Big Ten Tournament in 2013, marking the first time since 2007-08 that the Huskers had made consecutive postseason appearances. Erstad continued to infuse his hard-nosed, blue-collar work ethic in 2013. One of the biggest improvements under Erstad has been the Huskers’ focus on defense. It was evident in 2013, as Nebraska set a school and Big Ten Conference record with .981 fielding percentage, which ranked second nationally. The Huskers committed just 44 errors in 2013, marking their lowest total going back to 1985. From 2000 through 12, the Huskers had averaged 71.2 errors per season. Erstad and the rest of the Nebraska coaching staff tested the Huskers with the 16th-toughest schedule in the country in 2013. The Huskers got off to a rough start at 0-7 and finished the year 29-30, but were just a one win away from the NCAA Tournament with an RPI of 31.

Nebraska nearly won its first conference title since 2005, as it finished in a tie for second during the regular season and came within one win of bringing the Big Ten Tournament title back to Lincoln. After posting a 15-9 record during the conference season, Nebraska entered the 2013 Big Ten Tournament at Target Field in Minneapolis as the No. 3 seed, where the Huskers defeated Michigan, 11-2, in the first round. Following a second-round loss to Ohio State, the Huskers fell to the losers bracket where they knocked out Minnesota. The following day, Nebraska eliminated the Buckeyes and immediately had to play the top-seeded Indiana Hoosiers. The Huskers kept their season going with a win over the Hoosiers, as Tanner Lubach launched a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th inning. The two squads returned to Target Field the following day with the Big Ten Tournament title and an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament on the line. Indiana proved too much, as the Hoosiers returned the favor with a 4-3 walk-off win in the bottom of the ninth. The Hoosiers went on to play in the College World Series. Individually, Chad Christensen developed from a shortstop to an all-conference outfielder. After playing shortstop during his first three seasons, and being a first-team all-conference pick in 2012, Christensen moved to the outfield in 2013, where he was one of three nominees for Big Ten Player of the Year. Under Erstad, who earned three Gold Gloves during his Major League career, Christensen posted a perfect 1.000 fielding percentage in 124 chances and ranked in the top-10 nationally among outfielders with eight assists. Christensen saw his draft stock rise 10 rounds, as he was picked in the 25th round of the 2013 MLB Draft by the Minnesota Twins after being picked in the 35th round of the 2012 Draft by the Miami Marlins. Along with Christensen, Pat Kelly also earned first-team honors at second base, while Michael Pritchard was a second-team pick. Kash Kalkowski, Rich Sanguinetti and Blake Headley all earned third-team All-Big Ten honors in 2013. During Erstad’s first season in 2012, the Husker offense saw the biggest jump under the new direction of Erstad and Associate Head Coach Will Bolt. The Huskers led the Big Ten Conference in six categories, including home runs (47), RBIs (375), runs (413), total bases (916), on-base pct. (.384) and slugging pct. (.445). The Huskers also made noise on the national scene, as they ranked in the top-20 nationally in seven categories, including top-10 rankings in both batting average and scoring.

After hitting .270 as a team in 2011, the Huskers hit .315 in 2012 to rank eighth in the country. The Huskers also ranked eighth nationally in scoring with 7.1 runs per game after scoring 5.4 runs a game in 2011. With a more disciplined approach at the plate, NU had 106 fewer strikeouts than it had in 2011, while playing three more games in 2012. The Huskers also produced 150 more hits, drove in 107 more runs and hit 17 more home runs to lead the Big Ten with 47 home runs. No other team in the league hit more than 38 homers. Three Huskers were named first-team All-Big Ten, including Christensen, Sanguinetti and Pritchard. Overall, eight Huskers earned All-Big Ten honors across the first, second and third teams. Pritchard, a sophomore in 2012, continued his development at the plate and posted a 25-game hitting streak during the season - the third-longest streak in school history. For his efforts, he was named a third-team All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. Four players from the 2012 team were picked in the 2012 MLB Draft, including 23rd-round picks Travis Huber (Minnesota Twins), Kale Kiser (Chicago White Sox) and Richard Stock (Cleveland Indians), who all signed contracts. Christensen was picked in the 35th round by the Miami Marlins, but chose to return to Nebraska for his senior season in 2013. A two-time Major League All-Star and three-time Gold Glove winner, Erstad spent the 2011 season as a volunteer assistant coach with the Husker program. In his role, he helped lead a pair of Huskers to All-Big 12 honors, including third baseman Cody Asche. Asche became NU’s first position player to earn All-America honors since 2006, as he hit .327 with 12 home runs and produced a school-record 27 doubles en route to second-team All-America honors in 2011. One of the most decorated players in Nebraska baseball history, Erstad was a first-team AllAmerican and finalist for the USA Baseball Golden Spikes Award in 1995, before embarking on a 14-year career in Major League Baseball. Erstad wrapped up his professional career in the fall of 2009, after playing for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (1996-06), Chicago White Sox (2007) and Houston Astros (2008-09). During his career, he helped the Angels to a World Series title in 2002 and two other playoff appearances. Erstad appeared in 1,654 games, while finishing his career as a .282 hitter with 1,697 hits, 124 homers and 699 RBIs. He was at his best in the postseason, hitting .339 in 29 career playoff games, including a .352 clip during the Angels World Series run in 2002. The No. 1 overall pick in the 1995 Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft, Erstad spent the majority of his career playing for the Angels, where he won three Gold Gloves (2000-02-04) and was selected for the American League All-Star team in 1998 and 2000. He is the only player in Major League history to win Gold Gloves as an infielder (2004) and outfielder (2000 and 2002) and the first player in Major League history to win Gold Gloves at three positions (LF, 2000; CF, 2002; 1B, 2004). Erstad was one of the greatest players in Angels’ franchise history, as he ranks in the top five on team charts in eight categories, including at bats (4th), runs (4th), hits (4th), total bases (4th), doubles (4th), RBIs (4th), stolen bases (4th) and games played (5th). His best year came in 2000 when he led the Major Leagues with 240 hits and finished second in the American League with a .355 batting average with 121 runs scored, 39 doubles, six triples, 25 home runs, 100 RBIs, 64 walks and 28 stolen bases en route to winning a Silver Slugger Award. That season, he topped the Angels in seven categories, and set franchise records for average, runs scored and hits, with his records for average and hits still standing entering the 2013 season. His 240 hits are tied for 13th in Major League history entering the 2013 season and were the most since Hall of Famer Wade Boggs had 240 in 1985. In 2000, Erstad made his second All-Star Game appearance and won his first Gold Glove, committing just three errors in 362 total chances in left field for a .992 fielding percentage.

Will Bolt

#7

Associate Head Coach • Third Year • Nebraska (2003) Former Husker standout Will Bolt was named Nebraska’s associate head coach on June 8, 2011. A four-year starter and team captain on Nebraska’s 2001 and 2002 College World Series teams, Bolt spent four seasons as the head coach at Texarkana College before returning to Nebraska. He oversees NU’s infield unit and helps direct the Husker offense. During Bolt’s first two seasons, eight offensive players have earned all-conference honors, including two-time selections Chad Christensen, Michael Pritchard, Pat Kelly and Rich Sanguinetti. Three Husker hitters have also been drafted, including Christensen who saw his stock rise from a 35th-round pick in 2012 to a 25th-round pick in 2013 under Bolt’s guidance. Under Bolt and Head Coach Darin Erstad’s watch in 2013, Nebraska’s defense turned in its best performance in school history. The Huskers ranked second in the country with a .981 fielding percentage, just one thousandth of a point behind Mercer’s nation-leading .982 fielding percentage. The mark set both a school and Big Ten Conference record. Nebraska’s offense continued to grow under Bolt’s tutelage in 2013, as it ranked in the top three in the Big Ten Conference in eight offensive categories. During league play in 2013, the Huskers led the conference in batting average (.335), on-base percentage (.401), runs (180), hits (307) and RBIs (159). After producing a 25-game hitting streak in 2012, Pritchard followed with a 20-game hitting streak in 2013. It marked the first time in school history that a Husker has produced a pair of hitting streaks of 20-or-more games. 54

The Husker offense saw improvement across the board in 2012, as they led the Big Ten in several offensive categories and ranked in the top-20 nationally in seven categories, including top-10 rankings in both batting average and scoring. After hitting .270 as a team in 2011, Bolt helped direct an offensive attack that hit .315 on the year to rank eighth in the country. The Huskers also ranked eighth nationally in scoring with 7.1 runs per game after scoring 5.4 runs a game in 2011. The Huskers became a more disciplined team at the plate, as they had 106 fewer strikeouts than they had in 2011, while playing three more game in 2012. The Huskers also produced 150 more hits, drove in 107 more runs and hit 17 more home runs to lead the Big Ten with 47 home runs. No other team in the league hit more than 38 homers. Under Bolt’s watch, Pritchard and Richard Stock each put together 20-or-more game hitting streaks during the season, the first time in school history that a pair of teammates posted hitting streaks of 20 or more games in the same year. Pritchard led the way with a 25-game hitting streak - the third-longest streak in school history. A first-team All-Big Ten selection, Pritchard was also a third-team All-America pick by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. Stock, who signed with the Cleveland Indians after being picked in the 23rd round of the 2012 MLB Draft, tied for the Big Ten lead in doubles with 20 and led all players during Big Ten play with 39 hits. Bolt also oversaw the development of freshman Pat Kelly, who was named a freshman AllAmerican by four publications, including Perfect Game, Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. The freshman from Red Wing, Minn., hit .313 on the year, slugged eight home runs and drove in 37 runs in 41 starts. A native of Conroe, Texas, Bolt led Texarkana College to a pair of Region XIV championships during his four-year head coaching stint with the Bulldogs. Bolt has been in the collegiate coaching ranks for nine years, spending the 2005 season as Nebraska’s volunteer assistant during the program’s school-record breaking 57-win campaign, while also serving two years on Texas A&M’s coaching staff. One of the top infielders in Husker history, he finished his playing career holding six school records and caught the final out of the 2001 Super Regional to send Nebraska to its first College World Series. Bolt became the head coach at Texarkana College in 2007 and guided the Bulldogs to backto-back Region XIV championships (2009 and 2010) during a stretch of four straight Regional Tournament appearances and four 30-plus win seasons. Bolt, who was 140-82 (.631) at Texarkana, helped over 20 players sign with Division I schools. 2014 NEBRASKA BASEBALL I HUSKERS.COM I THISISNEBRASKA.COM

Bolt started his coaching career by serving as a graduate manager for the 2004 Huskers, and he was then named head coach for the Parkville Sluggers (M.I.N.K. League) over the summer. Upon being named a volunteer assistant at Nebraska in 2005, Bolt helped direct the Husker infielders and hitters, as NU had its best season in school history. Nebraska compiled a 5715 record and swept the Big 12 regular-season and tournament championships en route to capturing Nebraska’s first CWS win. Nebraska finished the season with a then-school record .975 fielding percentage. Bolt headed back to his home state in 2006 and spent two seasons as a volunteer assistant coach at Texas A&M. In 2007, he was on staff when the Aggies advanced to the Super Regionals, while producing a 49-18 overall record and claiming the program’s first Big 12 Tournament championship. In College Station, Bolt specialized in infield work and helped tutor All-Americans Brandon Hicks and Blake Stouffer, who were each drafted in the first five rounds of the MLB Draft. A member of Dave Van Horn’s first recruiting class, Bolt was a four-year starter and team captain on Nebraska’s 2001 and 2002 College World Series teams. The infielder played an instrumental role in helping Nebraska to four NCAA Regionals, three Super Regionals and back-to-back College World Series appearances. Bolt was the Minneapolis Regional MVP as a sophomore, as he led the Huskers to their first regional title in school history. He finished his career holding six school records, including games played (251), games started (242), at-bats (922), hits (281), doubles (56) and assists (639). In the classroom, Bolt was a two-time academic All-Big 12 honoree and graduated in 2003 with a degree in communication studies before earning his master’s degree in 2006. Bolt and his wife, Lauren, were married in July of 2005. Lauren earned a degree from Nebraska in 2005. They have two sons, Jaxon and Austin.

Ted Silva

#12

pitching coach/recruiting coordinator • third year Ted Silva was hired as Nebraska’s pitching coach on June 17, 2011, and also serves as the program’s recruiting coordinator. Silva joined the Huskers from the West Coast, where he had spent four seasons as a pitching coach at UC Irvine and Loyola Marymount. A tireless recruiter, Silva has led the charge for infusing talent in the Husker program. Prior to the start of the 2014 season, Baseball America named the Huskers’ 2013 recruiting class No. 11 in the nation, the highest ranked class in program history. Silva continued to rework Nebraska’s pitching staff during his second season in 2013. With returning starter Kyle Kubat missing the first 33 games of the year with shoulder soreness, the Huskers leaned on junior college transfer Christian DeLeon as their Friday-night starter. Under Silva’s guidance, DeLeon produced a 7-4 record and a 3.21 ERA. The junior righty led the Huskers in innings pitched (92.2) and strikeouts (46). Kubat made a dramatic return against No. 10 Arkansas on April 16, as the sophomore threw the first 5.0 innings of a combined no-hitter, with Tyler Niederklein and Dylan Vogt finishing off the historic day. It was the fourth combined no-hitter in school history and the first no-hitter since four Huskers no-hit Peru State on March 6, 1993. It was also the first no-hitter against a Division I program since April 5, 1981, when Anthony Kelley no-hit the Oklahoma Sooners in seven innings. Silva took over a young pitching staff in 2012 that returned no seniors and needed to replace its closer, after Casey Hauptman was picked in the 26th round of the 2011 MLB Draft by the New York Mets. Under Silva’s guidance in 2012, Kubat, a true freshman, emerged as one of the most consistent starters in NU’s rotation during the end of the season. Kubat, who won his final three starts during Big Ten play, was named a Freshman All-American by Collegiate Baseball, a third-team All-Big Ten performer and was selected to the Big Ten All-Freshman team. Silva also continued the development of Travis Huber, who led the 2012 team in saves with seven. After previously being picked twice in the MLB Draft in the 47th (2010) and 39th (2011) rounds, Huber was selected in the 23rd round of the 2012 MLB Draft by the Minnesota Twins and signed with the organization. Silva, a native of Redondo Beach, Calif., helped lead UC Irvine to national prominence from 2008 to 2010, when the Anteaters qualified for three straight NCAA Regionals and won the 2009 Big West Conference title. He moved on to Loyola Marymount under longtime friend and former Titan teammate Jason Gill for the 2011 season. In Silva’s first season as pitching coach at UC Irvine, the Anteaters won the 2008 Lincoln Regional, including a 3-2 win over host Nebraska. While at UCI, Silva’s pitching staff produced a 3.89 ERA and helped the program to its first Big West Conference championship. The Anteaters qualified for the NCAA Tournament all three years and were eliminated in 2010 by eventual national runner-up UCLA. Silva took an assistant coaching position at Loyola Marymount under Gill for the 2011 season. In his only season with the Lions, Silva’s pitchers posted a 3.25 ERA to rank 30th nationally, cutting the team’s ERA nearly in half from 2010 (7.21). A trio of LMU pitchers were selected in the 2011 MLB Draft, including a pair of top-15 round selections in Jason Wheeler (8th round) and Alex Gillingham (11th round). Silva and Gill were on staff at their alma mater in 2005 and 2006, when Silva served as a volunteer assistant coach. The Titans won the Big West Conference championship both years and reached the College World Series in 2006 when CSF produced an NCAA-best 2.73 ERA. Silva helped coach All-Americans and future first-round selections Ricky Romero (2005) and Wes Roemer (2006) to Big West Pitcher-of-the-Year honors. Silva spent the 2007 season at Fresno State and helped the Bulldogs to an NCAA Regional appearance. As a team, Fresno State finished with the second-best ERA in the WAC at 4.54, while three Bulldog hurlers ranked in the top 10 individually.

Jeff Christy

#35

volunteer assistant coach third year • nebraska (2007) Jeff Christy was named a volunteer assistant coach at Nebraska during the summer of 2011. Christy returned to Lincoln after spending five years playing in the professional ranks and one season as the volunteer assistant at Wichita State University. In 2013, Christy developed three catchers who had never played a game at Nebraska. As a unit, the trio threw out 35 percent of would-be base stealers. Sophomore Tanner Lubach started 46 of NU’s 59 games behind the plate in 2013, where he committed just two errors. He also ranked fifth on the team with 27 RBIs. In his first year with the Huskers, Christy helped senior catcher Cory Burleson become one of the best defensive catchers in the Big Ten Conference. After throwing out 14-of-40 base runners in 2011, Burleson threw out 20 runners, while giving up just 18 steals in 2012. Christy also assisted in the Huskers’ small ball attack. Nebraska laid down 47 sacrifice bunts on the year, but more importantly, the Huskers produced 39 bunt hits. During the 2011 season, Nebraska totaled just 16 bunt hits. A native of Lincoln, Neb., Christy was selected in the sixth round of the 2006 MLB Draft by the Minnesota Twins, the highest selection for a Husker catcher since 1985. Also a 2002 MLB Draft pick out of Lincoln Southeast High School, Christy was a two-year starter for Nebraska and helped lead NU to the 2005 College World Series.

In 2011, Christy began his coaching career by assisting Wichita State Head Coach Gene Stephenson, as the Shockers went 39-26 and reached the championship game of the Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. While at Nebraska, Christy caught a school-record 64 games as a junior in 2005, hitting .236 with 32 RBIs, while throwing out 45 percent of opposing runners, including 8-of-11 runners in the postseason. An honorable-mention All-Big 12 pick in 2006, Christy hit .284 with eight homers and 32 RBIs, while leading the Huskers to 42 wins and a No. 6 national seed.

Curtis Ledbetter #15 director of baseball operations sixth year • nebraska (2005) Curtis Ledbetter will start his sixth season as director of operations for the Nebraska baseball program in 2014. Ledbetter, who joined the Husker staff in May of 2008, assists with coordinating on-campus recruiting, business administration and is the director of the Nebraska Baseball Academy. A former all-conference performer at NU, Ledbetter returned to the Husker program following a stint in professional baseball. An 18th-round draft pick of the Seattle Mariners in 2005, Ledbetter played professional baseball for three years, earning Frontier League all-star honors in 2007 – his final season in the professional ranks. In addition to his playing duties, he worked at the Nebraska Baseball Academy. During his playing career, he was a three-year starter for the Huskers from 2003 to 2005, earning first-team All-Big 12 honors at two positions (designated hitter and first base), as he hit .320 with 34 homers and 166 RBIs in 180 career games. As a senior, he earned Big 12 Tournament MVP honors, guiding the Huskers to a sweep of the conference regular-season and tournament titles. Ledbetter earned NCAA Tournament All-Regional honors in 2003 and 2005, as Nebraska won two Big 12 regular-season titles and won the first College World Series game in school history during his senior year. In the classroom, Ledbetter was a three-time academic All-Big 12 selection, a Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll member and graduated from Nebraska in 2005 with a degree in journalism.

Shawn Eichorst

director of athletics • second year • wisconsin-whitewater (1990)

Shawn Eichorst was named the 14th Director of Athletics of the University of Nebraska by Chancellor Harvey Perlman on Oct. 4, 2012. Eichorst leads a tradition-rich athletic program of 24 varsity athletic teams, 600-plus student-athletes and more than 275 full-time employees. Eichorst succeeded legendary Nebraska football coach and Athletic Director Tom Osborne and officially assumed his duties on Jan. 3, 2013. “I am honored to have the opportunity to join the University of Nebraska family,” Eichorst said. “Nebraska is an outstanding academic institution with one of the strongest athletic departments in all of college sports. Most importantly, everyone here is committed to keeping the welfare of our student-athletes at the heart of everything we do. I am humbled by the responsibility and opportunities that lie ahead and will work diligently to carry on the rich tradition of Husker excellence set forth by Coach Osborne and so many others.” Perlman said it was Eichorst’s commitment to putting student-athletes first that made Eichorst stand out. “When I asked him how I would be able to measure his success if he were here five years from now,” Perlman said, “his response was that if the coaches and student-athletes had been successful and nobody knows his name, it would be a success.” Although his preference is to serve and lead diligently from the background, Eichorst has already canvassed the state promoting Husker Athletics and Nebraska’s tremendously talented studentathletes making more than 70 appearances across Nebraska and visiting eight other states in just his first seven months. Eichorst emphasizes academics first and is proud to acknowledge Nebraska’s nation-leading 307 Academic All-Americans, including eight who earned the honor in 2012-13. In fact, he has invited all of the academic honor winners back to campus for a reunion in November. He has met with each college dean on campus and uses his monthly radio show and his Connecting on Campus column to promote campus, coach and student-athlete academic and community successes. More than 200 Husker student-athletes were honored at the academic recognition banquet this spring while 188 were named academic All-Big Ten in 2012-13. During Eichorst’s first semester at Nebraska in the spring of 2013, women’s bowling, coached by the legendary Bill Straub, won a national title and Rhonda Revelle’s softball team advanced to the Women’s College World Series. The women’s basketball team, coached by Connie Yori, completed a run to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the second time in program history and the women’s tennis team, coached by Scott Jacobson, made an appearance in the Sweet 16 for the first time in program history and earned a share of the Big Ten title. Tennis player Mary Weatherholt finished runner-up at the NCAA Singles Championship, the highest-ever finish for a Nebraska tennis player. In addition to women’s tennis, two other Nebraska teams added Big Ten titles in the spring of 2013, as the women’s gymnastics team, coached by Dan Kendig, won its second-straight Big Ten title and third-straight conference title overall. The men’s track and field team, coached by Gary Pepin, claimed the outdoor team title. In the summer of 2013, three facility projects were completed: Memorial Stadium, which expands to accommodate more than 90,000 football fans and will include the Nebraska Athletic Performance Laboratory (NAPL) and the Center for Brain, Biology and Behavior (CB3) research facilities; Pinnacle Bank Arena in downtown Lincoln, where the Husker men’s and women’s basketball teams will be permanent tenants; and the renovated Bob Devaney Sports Center, where volleyball, men’s and women’s gymnastics and the wrestling team will compete. Construction for each of these three facilities began with Osborne at the helm. Athletic Director Emeritus Osborne continues to provide Eichorst with counsel on a number of items including the East Stadium research initiatives. The collaborative research that will take place within an athletic facility shared by academics and athletics is believed to be the first of its kind and sets the tone for the leadership role Nebraska has taken in the Big Ten Conference and nationally.

streak to 40 consecutive seasons. The women’s soccer team posted the first NCAA postseason win in program history, while the volleyball team advanced to the NCAA postseason for the third straight year and finished the season ranked 15th in the nation.

Nebraska Baseball Academy Camps Darin Erstad Nebraska Baseball Head Coach

Will Bolt Nebraska Baseball Associate Head Coach

Ted Silva Nebraska Baseball Assistant Coach

Jeff Christy Nebraska Baseball Volunteer Assistant Coach

Here is a sample of some of the many camps run by the Nebraska baseball academy during the year.

Fall League

The Fall League is a mini-season experience. The purpose of the Fall League is to provide the participants an opportunity to continue to improve their overall baseball skills and development in the fall. It provides participants with more innings, extra repetitions, extra at bats and a chance to play other positions and improve basic fundamentals. Teams are encouraged to register; individuals who register will be assigned to a roster based on age level. The League runs for five weeks on Sundays and will include one weekday evening session for Skill Instruction. All games will include umpires and will be held at various fields throughout the City of Lincoln and area communities. Age levels for this League are 11/12; 13/14; and 15 - high school seniors.

4-on-1 Hitting Instruction Curtis Ledbetter Nebraska Baseball Director of Baseball Operations Academy Director

Renee Brinkmann Nebraska Baseball Academy Coordinator

This is a four-week class, meeting once a week for 60 minutes (four hours of total instruction). The Intensive Hitting Instructional Camp is a hands-on class for those who want to improve their hitting. Classes are very small and sessions are designed to teach drills and philosophy that we hope will create a consistent level of success for all ages and abilities.

Stars of Tomorrow Camp

This camp is exclusively for those student-athletes in high school. The camp is a unique blend of evaluations and teaching instruction and game situations that allows participants to learn the game of baseball. Pitching, hitting and defense will be emphasized. All of this will be followed by a scrimmage against other participants. Other area smaller colleges and Junior College coaches will be invited to attend this camp.

Day Camps

Each summer we conduct several Day Camps in various towns throughout the state of Nebraska. Day Camps are what we consider All Skills Camps on the road! Day Camps typically run from 9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.. If your community has interest in hosting a day camp, please contact Renee Brinkmann at the Nebraska Baseball Office (402) 472-2269 or rbrinkmann@ huskers.com. She would be happy to discuss the requirements for hosting a summer camp in your area in the Summer of 2014.

Veteran Hitting School Nebraska Baseball Summer Camps take place at Hawks Field. The complete summer schedule of camps will be available in March.

This is a 4-week session, meeting once a week for 2 hours (8 hours of total instruction) and is for high school players only. Techniques and drills used during this session are the same taught and practiced daily by Nebraska Baseball. The Hitting School will focus on a comprehensive training program with special emphasis on routine and repetition. Each week will begin with a block of “classroom time” to help players stay focused on what is being taught on that particular day.

Individual Private Lessons

Individual private lessons (Hitting/Pitching/Catching) are now available through the Nebraska Baseball Academy. Because of NCAA bylaws, these private lessons are open only to 10-year olds through individuals currently in the eighth grade. NCAA bylaws state that “prospective student-athletes” shall include any individual who has started classes for the ninth grade and are prohibited from participating in private lessons. Lessons will be 4-week sessions meeting once a week for 45 minutes.

Annual Coaches Clinic

The Nebraska Baseball Academy uses the Huskers’ indoor practice facility for year-round training.

www.BigRedAcademy.com

The Nebraska Baseball Coaches Clinic is for high school, college and youth baseball coaches - anyone who wants to learn more about the game of baseball. We hope you will join us, along with Darin Erstad, Will Bolt, Ted Silva, Jeff Christy and Curtis Ledbetter as we work together in helping to make kids better all-around baseball players. The coaches will be joined by a guest speaker each year, including brothers David and Rick Eckstein in 2014.

2013 Season Review Huskers One Win Shy of Winning First Conference Tournament Title Since 2005 Huskers No-Hit No. 10 Razorbacks

A trio of Huskers combined for the ninth no-hitter in school history on April 16, 2013, as Kyle Kubat, Tyler Niederklein and Dylan Vogt held the No. 10 Arkansas Razorbacks hitless in a 3-0 Nebraska win in the first game of a doubleheader. It was the fourth combined no-hitter in school history and the first no-hitter since four Huskers no-hit Peru State on March 6, 1993. It was the first no-hitter against a Division I program since April 5, 1981, when Anthony Kelley no-hit the Oklahoma Sooners in seven innings. The last nine-inning no hitter against a Division I team was on April 20, 1954, when Richard Geier threw a perfect game against the Kansas Jayhawks. After being sidelined with shoulder soreness for the first 33 games of the year, Kubat made his season debut against the nationally ranked Razorbacks. A freshman All-American in 2012 and third-team All-Big Ten pick, Kubat dealt 5.0 innings of no-hit ball. Kubat retired the first six Arkansas batters he faced, before issuing a leadoff walk in the third. He then sat down seven straight, before hitting Isaac Hellbusch with two out in the fifth.

Niederklein took over in the top of the sixth and picked up right where Kubat left off, as he retired the first seven Razorbacks he faced. After issuing a one-out walk to Hellbusch, who reached for the third time in the game, Head Coach Darin Erstad went to Vogt. Vogt came on and quickly ended the eighth by getting pinchhitter Eric Fischer to ground into a fielder’s choice before striking out Brett McAfee. Facing the top of Arkansas’ order in the ninth, Vogt issued a walk to leadoff hitter Matt Vinson to start the inning, but cleared the bases when Joe Serrano grounded into a 6-3 double play. With one out to go for the first no-hitter in over 20 years, Vogt got ahead 0-2 on Tyler Spoon and on the 114th pitch of the game for the Huskers, Spoon flied out to center fielder Rich Sanguinetti to complete the no-hitter.

Seven Huskers Earn Big Ten Hardware

Seven members of the Nebraska baseball team were honored by the Big Ten Conference during the 2013 season, including Chad Christensen and Pat Kelly, who were each tabbed as first-team All-Big Ten performers by the league coaches. Michael Pritchard was a second-team selection, while Kash Kalkowski, Rich Sanguinetti and Blake Headley were all thirdteam picks. Senior Bryan Peters rounded out the group as Nebraska’s Sportsmanship Award winner. A first-team pick for the second-straight season, Christensen was one of three first-team outfielders named after being the first-team shortstop in 2012. During the regular season, the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, native led or was tied for the team lead in average (.362), hits (75), runs (39), triples (3) and home runs (2). During conference play, Christensen led the league in batting average (.431), hits (44) and runs scored (26). After playing shortstop during his first three seasons at Nebraska, Christensen made a smooth transition to the outfield in 2013, where he had eight assists on the year and no errors.

His eight outfield assists ranked in the top-five nationally. Christensen was the first Husker to earn firstteam honors in consecutive seasons since Alex Gordon in 2004 and 2005. A third-team pick as a freshman in 2012, Kelly proved himself as the league’s top second baseman in 2013. Following a freshman season that saw him post 51 hits and a .313 batting average on his way to being named a freshman All-American by four publications, Kelly tied Christensen for fourth in the league with 75 hits on the year, including 43 Kyle Kubat was one of three pitchers who combined for a no-hitter against Arkansas in 2013. hits during conference play, which ranked second to Christensen’s Conference games, and produced at least a pair of RBIs seven 44 hits.

Named a 2013 Preseason All-American, Pritchard played in the Headley earned his first all-conference honor as the thirdfirst two games of the season, but then missed 10 games with team’s third baseman. After senior Josh Scheffert, who was a an oblique injury. Following the slow start, the Omaha native second-team pick at third base in 2012, got hurt in Nebraska’s found his swing and ended the regular season with a .343 second Big Ten game of the season, Headley stepped in and average, ranking second on the team to Christensen. Pritchard made the most of his opportunity with 40 hits and 20 RBIs reached base in 36 straight games and once Big Ten play during the regular season.

Sanguinetti was named an all-conference outfielder for the second-straight season, becoming the first outfielder at Nebraska to earn consecutive all-conference accolades since Jeff Leise was a three-time Big 12 honoree from 2001 to 2003. Sanguinetti got off to a slow start, but after taking over as Nebraska’s primary leadoff hitter at Cal State Fullerton on March 19, the Arlington, Texas, native turned around his senior season. Over the final 36 games of the regular season, Sanguinetti was third on the team with a .351 batting average and failed to reach base in a game only twice. After switching to the leadoff spot, Sanguinetti raised his overall average by nearly .130 points from .175 to .303, which ranked fourth on the team. After making just one error in 2012, Sanguinetti again solidified the Husker defense with an error-free 2013 in center field. Kalkowski picked up his second career all-conference award after being named an honorable-mention All-Big 12 pick in 2011. Kalkowski saw time in the outfield and at first base in 2012, but became NU’s everyday first baseman in 2013. Playing one of the toughest spots on the diamond, the senior from Grand Island looked like a seasoned veteran, with just four errors on the year. He continued to deliver at the plate, as Kalkowski led all players during league play with 27 RBIs. The 6-1 righty had at least one RBI in 15 of his 24 Big Ten

A second baseman during his first three seasons at Nebraska, Peters took Kelly under his wing in 2012 and aided in the development of the freshman. In 2013, Peters shifted to shortstop, where again he guided a pair of freshmen in Wes Edrington and Jake Placzek. Peters started 32 games for the Huskers during the regular season, contributing five doubles and 16 RBIs.

Game Summary: After plowing his way through Kansas’ first 20 batters, (and having only four Jayhawks hit the ball out of the infield) senior pitcher Cliff Faust must have thought he was seeing his perfect game slip away. The Jayhawks’ Dick Lewallen came to the plate with two outs in the seventh (and final inning) and promptly hit a sinking line drive into left field. But left fielder Joe Scherger made a diving grab to save Faust’s perfect game. Outside of Lewallen’s game ender, no other Jayhawk made a serious bid to reach base.

Game Summary: Richard Geier tossed a nine-inning perfect game against Kansas on April 20, 1954. Geier struck out 10 on the way to retiring 27 consecutive batters. The Huskers scored their lone run when shortstop Dirkes Rolston walked with the bases loaded in the fourth to score center fielder James Cederdahl.

1997; Texas Rangers Marc Sagmoen made Major League history in his debut with the Texas Rangers on April 18, 1997. Sagmoen became one of just four players to get an inside-the-park home run for his first career hit, sparking Texas to a 5-1 win and its first-ever sweep at Kansas City. But that wasn’t all. Sagmoen was sporting a randomly assigned No. 42 on his jersey and became the last player to wear it in a Major League Baseball game, as baseball retired the number that same night to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the start of Jackie Robinson’s career.

In 2006, he was a part-time starter for Oakland’s AL West Divisional title team, hitting .234 with nine homers and 37 RBIs in 91 contests. In 2007, Johnson earned a spot in the everyday starting lineup, setting career bests in homers (18) and RBIs (67) while appearing in 117 contests. In 2008, he was signed by the American League Champion Tampa Bay Rays, hitting .192 with a pair of homers and four RBIs. He made an immediate impact in his debut on Sept. 10, hitting a game-tying home run off Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth inning of a 5-4 Rays win. Johnson spent the 2009 season with the Yokohama BayStars of Japan’s Central League. He rejoined Tampa Bay for the 2010 campaign and was called up in August. On Aug. 28, he hit a walk-off home run against the Boston Red Sox. Johnson had one of the most powerful bats on the Rays’ roster, and helped his team to the postseason with seven homers in just 40 games. He played 31 games for the Rays in 2011, including six games in September during the Rays run to the playoffs. Johnson again came through with a big home run on the final day of the 2011 regular season with a two-out solo shot in the bottom of the ninth inning with two strikes to tie the game, 7-7, against the Yankees in Tampa Bay.

Alex Gordon (2003-05)

2007-Present; Kansas City Royals Alex Gordon enjoyed a rapid rise to the Major Leagues as he spent one season in the minors before making the Kansas City Royals’ 2007 opening day roster. Gordon, Baseball America’s Minor League Player of the Year in 2006, hit .247 with 36 doubles, four triples, 15 home runs, 60 RBIs and 60 runs scored while going 14-of-18 on the basepaths. He led all American League rookies in extra-base hits (55) and was in the top three among AL rookies in home runs (second), RBIs (third), doubles (third), triples (third), stolen bases (third) and total bases (third). Gordon’s continued development helped the Royals to their best record since 2003, as he hit .260 with 16 homers and 59 RBIs in 134 contests in 2008. In 2009, he was slowed by a hip injury and played just 30 games, hitting .232 with six homers and 22 RBIs. A broken thumb and position change to outfield put a slow start to Gordon’s 2010 season. He went on to play in 74 games and hit .215 with eight homers and 10 doubles. Playing as the Royals’ everyday left fielder in 2011, Gordon shined in the field and produced his best offensive season as a Royal. For his defensive efforts, Gordon became the 19th Royal, but only the third since 1989, to earn a Rawlings Gold Glove Award and the first former Husker to be selected for the award since 2004 when Darin Erstad collected his third Gold Glove. The award was the first of Gordon’s career after he led the league with a club-record 20 assists. Offensively, Gordon set then-career highs in batting average (.303), runs (101), home runs (23), RBIs (87), stolen bases (17) on-base percentage (.376) and slugging percentage (.502). Gordon continued to flash one of the top gloves in the game in 2012 and was awarded his second straight Gold Glove award, becoming the first Royal to win consecutive Gold Gloves since second baseman Frank White in 1986-87. Gordon played in a career-high 161 games and led all left fielders in the majors with 17 outfield assists, while making just two errors all year for a .994 fielding percentage. He saved 24 runs (sabermetric statistic) on the year, the most of any left fielder in baseball, according to FanGraphs. His offensive numbers were also impressive, as he set career highs in hits (189), doubles (51) and triples (5), while hitting .294 with 14 home runs and 72 RBIs. His 51 doubles led the majors. The 2013 season was a banner year for Gordon, as not only did he earn his first invitation to the All-Star Game, but he also earned his third-straight Gold Glove, beating out Oakland’s Yoenis Cespedes and Detroit’s Andy Dirks after he led American League left fielders with 341 total chances but made only one error. He led

the AL with 17 outfield assists, producing a Major League best 54 assists since 2011. Already one of just three players in Royals’ franchise history to win the award more than once, Gordon joined second baseman Frank White as the only Royals player to win three in a row. The award tied Gordon with former Husker and current Head Coach Darin Erstad for the most Gold Gloves by a Husker. Erstad made MLB history in 2004 when he became the first player to ever win Gold Gloves in the infield and outfield. Erstad earned the award as a center fielder in 2000 and 2002, before being selected as a Gold Glove recipient at first base in 2004. Offensively in 2013, Gordon hit .265 with 27 doubles, a career-high six triples, 20 home runs and 81 RBIs. Gordon helped the Royals to an 86-76 record in 2013, their first winning season since 2003 and just their second since 1994.

Joba Chamberlain (2005-06)

2007-Present; New York Yankees Joba Chamberlain became an overnight sensation for the New York Yankees, propelling the franchise to a playoff appearance in 2007. He began the year in Class A Tampa and jumped four levels in his first professional season. He finished the season in the Majors, going 2-0 with a 0.38 ERA in 19 appearances, striking out 34 over 24 innings of work after being called up on Aug. 7. He earned his first MLB win against Seattle on Sept. 5, tossing a perfect inning of relief and followed up 11 days later with a victory over Boston. Chamberlain, a first-round pick in 2006, began his Yankee career by not allowing a run in his first 15.1 innings, the second-longest streak in franchise history and the longest in over a century. Chamberlain continued his development in 2008, going 4-3 with a 2.60 ERA for the Yankees, making 42 appearances, including 12 starts for the Bronx Bombers. He played an important role in the Yankees’ 27th world title in 2009, going 9-6 with a 4.75 ERA in 43 starts during the regular season. In the playoffs, he was even better, posting a 1-0 record with a 2.84 ERA in 10 games, earning a win in the World Series for the Yankees. Chamberlain was moved to the bullpen for the 2010 season and appeared in 73 games, the fifth-most in the American League. He posted three saves and struck out 77 hitters in 71.2 innings.

He went 10-3 with a 2.62 ERA and was at his best down the stretch, earning a spot in the starting rotation in July and then posting his first career shutout less than a month later. He was Minnesota’s No. 3 starter in the 2010 playoffs. Duensing served as the Twins’ No. 3 starter in 2011 and started a career-high 28 games. Minnesota was hit hard by injuries all season, including Duensing, who missed time with an oblique strain. He won nine games for Ron Garndenhire’s club and topped 100 strikeouts for the first time in his career with 115. The year was highlighted on July 4 with a complete-game shutout of the Tampa Bay Rays at Target Field, as Duensing gave up just six hits and struck out seven. Duensing worked as a

Gordon’s Professional Statistics

2014 NEBRASKA BASEBALL I HUSKERS.COM I THISISNEBRASKA.COM

Alex Gordon earned a place among the finest players in school history during his three-year career, becoming the first Husker to earn national player-of-the-year honors in 2005. Gordon swept nearly every major honor that season, including the Dick Howser Trophy, the Brooks Wallace Award and the USA Baseball Golden Spikes Award, in leading NU to 57 wins and the school’s first College World Series victory. Gordon began his professional career with a flourish in 2006, hitting .325 with 39 doubles, 29 home runs and 100 RBIs en route to being named Baseball America’s Minor League Player of the Year. He ranked second among all minor leaguers in total bases (286) and fourth in runs scored (111) and ranked in the top 10 among all minor leaguers in homers, RBIs and slugging percentage. Gordon continued his rapid rise in 2007, starting at third base for the Kansas City Royals on opening day. He finished the year with a .247 average with 36 doubles, four triples, 15 home runs, 60 RBIs and 60 runs scored while going 14-of-18 on the base paths. Gordon led all American League rookies in extra-base hits (55) and was in the top three among American League rookies in six other categories, including homers and RBIs. In 2008, Gordon raised his average to .260 and belted 16 homers despite missing part of the year with a hip flexor. Gordon’s continued development helped Kansas City to its best record since 2003. Gordon battled a hip injury that required surgery in 2009, as he played in just 49 contests, hitting .232 with six homers and 22 RBIs. A broken thumb slowed Gordon’s progress in 2010 and he later went to Triple-A Omaha to make a position change to outfield. He returned to Kansas City and went on to play in 74 games, hitting .215 with eight homers and 10 doubles. Playing as the Royals’ everyday left fielder in 2011, Gordon shined in the field and produced his best offensive season as a Royal. For his defensive efforts, Gordon became the 19th Royal, but only the third since 1989, to earn a Rawlings Gold Glove Award and the first former Husker to be selected for the award since 2004 when Darin Erstad collected his third Gold Glove. The award was the first of Gordon’s career after he led the league with a club-record 20 assists. Offensively, Gordon set career highs in batting average (.303), runs (101), home runs (23), RBIs (87), stolen bases (17) on-base percentage (.376) and slugging percentage (.502). Gordon continued to flash one of the top gloves in the game in 2012 and was awarded his second straight Gold Glove award. Gordon played in a career-high 161 games and led all left fielders in the majors with 17 outfield assists, while making just two errors all year for a .994 fielding percentage. He saved 24 runs (sabermetric statistic) on the year, the most of any left fielder in baseball, according to FanGraphs. His offensive numbers were also impressive, as he set career highs in hits (189), doubles (51) and triples (5), while hitting .294 with 14 home runs and 72 RBIs. His 51 doubles led the majors. 2013 was a banner year for Gordon, as he earned his first invitation to the All-Star Game and claimed his thirdstraight Gold Glove. He led the AL with 17 outfield assists, producing a Major League best 54 assists since 2011. Already one of just three players in Royals’ franchise history to win the award more than once, Gordon joined second baseman Frank White as the only Royal to win three in a row. The award tied Gordon with former Husker and current Head Coach Darin Erstad for the most Gold Gloves by a Husker. Offensively in 2013, Gordon hit .265 with 27 doubles, a careerhigh six triples, 20 home runs and 81 RBIs. Gordon helped the Royals to an 86-76 record in 2013, their first winning season since 2003 and just their second since 1994. A career .355 hitter in three seasons at Nebraska, Gordon finished his Husker career in the top 10 in eight offensive categories: total bases (447, third); homers (44, fourth); RBIs (189, fourth); doubles (53, fourth); runs (188, eighth); hits (249, ninth); slugging percentage (.657, ninth) and triples (11, 10th). Gordon played every game of his final two seasons at NU and closed his career with 171 consecutive starts. The Lincoln, Neb., native capped his career by becoming the No. 2 overall pick by the Kansas City Royals in June of 2005. His selection was the highest by a Husker since Darin Erstad was tabbed No. 1 by the Anaheim (now Los Angeles) Angels 10 years earlier. Gordon is the highest draft pick in Big 12 baseball history. In his final season at Nebraska, Gordon led the Huskers to a sweep of the Big 12 regularseason and tournament titles, hitting .372 with 19 homers, 66 RBIs and 23 stolen bases. A twotime Big 12 Player of the Year, Gordon led the conference in six categories, and ranked among the league leaders in all 12 offensive categories. He became the first player since Baylor’s Jason Jennings to repeat as Big 12 Player of the Year.

During his playing career, Erstad won a World Series ring with the Angels in 2002 and appeared in the MLB Playoffs three times. In 2005, Erstad helped the Angels to their second straight American League West title, batting .273 with seven homers and 66 RBIs. He was second among American League first basemen with a .997 fielding percentage and was honored for his charitable work, as he was selected as the Angels’ recipient of the 2005 Roberto Clemente Award for his efforts in the Southern California community. Erstad made Major League history in 2004, becoming the first player to ever win Gold Gloves in the infield and outfield when he was chosen as the Gold Glove winner at first base. Erstad won his two previous Gold Gloves as a center fielder in 2000 and 2002. He ranked third among American League first basemen with a .996 fielding percentage in 2004, committing four errors in 1,056 total chances.

During the postseason, Erstad batted .352 with a pair of homers, while tying a Major League record with 25 hits in the Angels’ first playoff appearance since 1986. He enjoyed a career year in 2000, leading the Majors with 240 base hits, batting .355 and topping the Angels in seven categories, including average, runs, hits, total bases and stolen bases. His 240 hits tied for the 12th most in Major League history and the most since Wade Boggs had 240 in 1985. Erstad earned an All-Star bid for the second time and won his first Gold Glove, committing three errors in 362 total chances for a .992 fielding percentage. In 1998, he hit .296 with 82 RBIs and 84 runs scored, and became an All-Star for the first time in his career. His jump to the Major Leagues came after only one year in the minors. Erstad hit .284 with four homers and 20 runs batted in during 57 games as a rookie in 1996. In 1997, he landed the Angels’ starting first base job, finishing the season with a .299 average and 16 home runs. In 1998, Erstad played in 133 games and hit .296 with 19 home runs and 82 RBIs. Erstad spent his last two seasons with the Houston Astros, hitting .276 with four homers and 31 RBIs in his first season with the club. The 140 games he appeared in during the 2008 season was his highest total since 2005. In 2007, he appeared in 87 games for the Chicago White Sox after spending his first 11 years with the Angels, hitting .248 with four homers and 32 RBIs despite a sprained ankle that restricted his playing time. It was the second straight year that Erstad battled injuries, as he played in just 40 contests in 2006, his final season with Los Angeles. A two-sport star at Nebraska, Erstad was a first-team All-American and Big Eight Co-Player of the Year as a junior in 1995, batting .410 with 19 homers and 76 RBIs. A Golden Spikes Award finalist as a junior, he finished his Husker career holding school records for most hits (six), runs (six), and RBIs (six) in a game; most hits (103) and total bases (194) in a single season (1995) and most career hits (261). In addition to his exploits on the diamond, Erstad, a two-time academic all-conference selection, was also the starting punter for the Huskers’ 1994 national championship football team, helping NU to a 13-0 record.
