Baseball Season Preview: Starting a New Chapter
For a team that is returning 24 players from its 2016 roster, it feels like a lot has changed for the Villanova baseball program since the end of last season. To start with, the Wildcats graduated what was perhaps the most experienced senior class in the 150-plus year history of the program. In addition, a new head coach has come on board for only the fifth time in the past 68 years. The roster for the 2017 campaign was set following the conclusion of fall ball, with nine newcomers among the 33 players on the roster. Maybe most significant among all that will be new for the Wildcats this season is the playing surface at the Villanova Ballpark at Plymouth. Artificial turf was installed on the infield and behind home plate during the fall, and the team began practicing on the new surface as early as the end of September.
