The Utah Valley Baseball team hosted members of the media Wednesday morning during its annual media day events. The team got things kicked off by speaking to the media in various forms, both in press conference and one-on-one fashion. ESPN 960’s Brice Larson and Jordan Bianucci were there to cover the event in its entirety.
Following the interviews, members of the media were invited to take part in some batting practice at UCCU Ballpark in Orem. An exercise aimed to show just how hard it can be to step into that pressure filled box and come away with a base hit.
Didn’t happen. Humbled.
