RUSTON -- Louisiana Tech's baseball seniors met at head coach Wade Simoneaux's house Sunday evening and held the team's annual draft for the Fall World Series which begins on Friday Oct. 28 at 6:00 p.m. at J.C. Love Field at Pat Patterson Park.

The Bulldogs have three seniors on their team; Justin Gordey, Graham Meyers and Alex Williams. Williams will captain the Grey team and Meyers and Gordey will co-captain the Black team.

"Our annual Fall World Series divides up our seniors, and gives them an opportunity to see what us coaches go through when you make a lineup and pitching changes; especially when dealing with friends and possibly roommates." (Manager Wade Simoneaux)

"It tells us a lot about the character of our seniors and what type of ball club we have."

Following the draft the official schedule was set and the rules were made clear to each team.

Game one will be Friday (Oct. 28) at 6:00 p.m. followed by game two on Sunday (Oct. 30) afternoon at 3:00 p.m.  In order to rest pitchers there will be two days of rest before game three and four on Wednesday (Nov. 2) and Friday (Nov. 4), each at 6:00 p.m.  The final game of the series is set for Saturday Nov. 5 at 3 p.m.

All five games will be played regardless of who wins and all games will go seven innings.

All pitchers will be under a pitch count/innings limit. The maximum a pitcher can throw is 5 innings or 75 pitches. If he is under 75 pitches when a new hitter approaches the plate, he can finish the hitter. If a pitcher throws 5 innings, he will be under 4 days rest. A pitcher who throws between 41 and 75 pitches will have 3 days rest. 21-40 pitches gives a pitcher 2 days rest, while anyone who throws under 21 pitches does not need a rest day in between games.

The winning team will win bragging right and will eat steaks while the losing team will have all field duties and eat beans.
