Squads Picked for 2013 Fall World Series

CORPUS CHRISTI – After several weeks of practice, the Texas A&M – Corpus Christi baseball team is set to play some games ­— even if it is against each other.

The annual Fall World Series returns this weekend, as the Islanders will host three intrasquad scrimmages with times set for 2:20 p.m. Friday, 1 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. Sunday. All games will be played at Chapman Field and all games will be open to the public with free admission.

On Sunday night, the two teams drafted their rosters for the series. The team captains for the Blue Team were AJ Longoria, Cody Stephens and Russell Vaughn. The pickers for the Grey Team were Jacob Hubert, Brandon Tierney and Jacob Dorris.

The Blue Team focused on pitching early, selecting junior Trevor Belicek with the first pick of the draft. However, the Grey Team loaded up on bats, taking two transfers, Zach Gibson and Tyler Ware, with its first two picks. A full roster for both squads can be found below.

Starters for the series have already been set with Matt Danton facing off against Gage Curry on Friday. Belicek and Tyler Schnuriger will go head-to-head Saturday, while Gavin Williamson and Devin Skapura will take the mound Sunday.

The three-game series will mark the end of fall practice for the Islanders, as they will have a few months off before resuming practice on Jan. 24. Be sure to stay tuned to GoIslanders.com, as the baseball team will release its 2014 schedule very soon.
