Oklahoma State begins preparations for its second baseball season under head coach Josh Holliday with the start of its first fall practice.
The Cowboys are returning 17 letterwinners from last year's club, which turned in a 41-19 record, finished second in the Big 12 Conference and lost in the finals of the NCAA Louisville Regional. OSU also has a strong recruiting class of 17 newcomers.
OSU's fall practice begins Sunday. Holliday says the team has a great group of returning players and a core of winners from last year's team that competed at a high level. Holliday says the Cowboys also have 13 quality freshmen as well as four quality transfers who are invested in the program.
During fall practice, OSU will hold scrimmages that are open to the public.
