BaseballLet’s get going with part I of our baseball preview today. A look at OSU’s catchers.

The Cowboys carry five catchers on their roster this year — a seemingly excessive amount, until you consider the experience they have at the position (see chart below).

It’s not pretty.

The Cowboys didn’t have an everyday catcher last year and I’d be surprised if they have one this year either.

In fact, it might have the first five-man platoon in college baseball history.

And yes, if you’re wondering — Heath Holliday is Josh’s cousin and given that he hit .208 last year at a NAIA school, I don’t need many guesses as to why he’s on the team.

If I had to take a stab at it (and that is all this is) I’d say Palmer and the freshman get a shot at the job with Romero as a third guy and Holliday and Stover as the emergency guys.
