ORU baseball looks to shake off rust in return to diamond

  • Oral Roberts baseball is scheduled to open its season Sunday, Feb. 21 with a home game vs. Little Rock.
  • The Golden Eagles will play their first game as a unit in 348 days. The 2020 season came to an abrupt halt with the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Head coach Ryan Folmar said Friday there’s no doubt his players will be rusty having missed consistent game action; however, the key is staying healthy and growing together the first 20-25 games of the season.
  • Infielder Adam Oviedo got off to a wicked hot start in 2020, hitting .302 with a conference-best 5 home runs before the season shutdown. The TCU transfer said he’s focused on the mental aspect of the game early this season.
  • ORU was picked to finish second in the Summit League preseason poll.
