The Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College Stallions baseball team is looking to build off a strong 2023-2024 season in which they finished with a 31-30 record finishing runner up in the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association (GCAA) Tournament.
The Stallions will be led by Head Coach Brooks Calvo, who was promoted to the position after the departure of longtime head coach Kevin Godwin in August of this year. Calvo, who is entering his sixth season coaching college baseball and his third-year coaching ABAC baseball, will succeed Matthew Williams and is looking to surpass the great success that was the season prior.
“We have a lot of talent on this team,” Calvo said. “We have a good mix of experienced players and young guys who are ready to contribute. We’re excited to get started and see what we can accomplish.”
The Stallions look to improve on their back-to-back 30+ win seasons and hoist the GCAA Tournament Trophy in 2024. According to ABAC Baseball Manager Brice Moore, be on the lookout for pitchers Lucas Morici and Terry Garmon to carry the load on mound and have stellar seasons once again.
Moore also mentioned outfielder Joe Fisher and first baseman Chasin Cash when talking about influential players to watch this season. Moore had great things to say about the relief pitching from Nick “Tiny” Milbrandt and plate warrior Drew Rothschild. The return of CJ “Chop” Rose was highly anticipated from Moore, as the last time he graced the green and gold he led the team in homeruns.
The Stallions will play a challenging schedule in 2024, including games against several GCAA rival opponents. The team accomplished being runner up in the GCAA Tournament and leading the GCAA in almost every offensive category while having a combined team GPA of 3.26. ABAC Baseball on X confirms that last season they led runs, runs per game, hits, doubles, extra base hits (XBH), total bases, runs batted in (RBIs), batting average, on base percentage (OBP), and slugging (SLG).
When asked about replicating last season’s succuss Calvo replied, “We’re looking forward to the challenge, we think we have a team that can compete with anyone. We’re excited to get out there and prove it.”
Get ready to support ABAC Baseball at their scrimmage the week of Nov. 6 and during the spring semester as the hunger for the title grows.
