Here’s the list of outfielders on OSU’s current roster.

Blake Brom Freshman Wichita Falls, TX High school .369
Gage Green Sophomore Wichita Falls, TX OSU .237/1/6
Corey Hassel Freshman Stillwater, OK High school .341/7/33
Saulyer Saxon Junior Shawnee, OK OSU .299/0/10

Aaron Cornell Junior Roff, OK OSU .088/0/2
There us, uh, zero power in the outfield. OSU returns a grand total of two home runs from last year’s group of outfielders. This might be all right though given that the group stole a combined 29 bases, but the power is going to have to come from somewhere.
The rotation should be Higgins in CF, Saxon in LF, and Fish in RF but Manute Bol-like frosh, Blake Brom (he’s 6’11, 187!!!) could push for time as well as some platooning from the other guys.
There’s definitely experience here but unless we have the ’96 Braves pitching staff, OSU’s infield is going to have to carry it on offense because I really don’t see it happening from these guys.
Here’s a great video of a Saxon game-winning hit from summer ball last July.
Also, Higgins made this video of himself and it’s kinda hilarious/incredible…
