Vanderbilt baseball is hosting a special spring game for its players to cheer on the team.
The game, held Thursday in Atlanta, was organized by the program’s president and athletic director, Mike Sartore.
The game was also held at a nearby high school, Vanderbilt University High School.
Sartore, who has been in charge of recruiting since the beginning of the NCAA baseball season, said he is looking forward to welcoming back his players after a break from the classroom.
He is hoping to play baseball for the Commodores in 2018.
“I am looking forward, obviously, to having them back here,” Sartor said.
“I think that is a big part of it, that they’re getting back to the field and having the opportunity to compete.
I would go with the classroom.””
If I have to choose between having the team, and getting back into the classroom, I would say, yes.
I would go with the classroom.”
Sartor, who played in two of Vanderbilt’s 20 NCAA baseball championships, was in charge for a season that saw the Commadores win its second national title and the third in program history.
He guided the team to the 2010 College World Series.
The Commodors finished the season with a 15-9 record and an NCAA baseball-record 10 wins.
Sterling is expected to return for spring training in the fall, when he will be at the helm of a program that is ranked in the top 10 in the country.
He and the team will begin the spring with the rest of the teams in action.
