FAYETTEVILLE — University of Arkansas baseball assistant coach Tony Vitello recently visited with RazorVision to recap fall practice and also provide an update on recruiting. Fresh off his first fall practice on the Razorback coaching staff, Coach Vitello gave his impressions on how the team improved during the fall. “The fall was great for us,” Coach Vitello said. “For me, it was my first time here obviously, so I kind of set back a little bit and got to know the players and just observe what we had and how things go. I thought the kids all got along great, gave us an effort that we were looking for every day. Typically the fall gives you an indication of how the spring is going to go and if that is the case I think things will be alright for us.” With the national signing period for baseball starting next Wednesday, Coach Vitello gave an update on how the construction of the Baseball and Track Indoor Training Facility is impacting recruiting. “It’s phenomenal,” Coach Vitello said. “Someone always has drawings to show kids and families, but very rarely do you have a case where you can show them the drawing and the next thing you know they’re working on that thing over there. They’re fast tracking it so each week that we bring kids in on campus and they see more and more progress they see and can envision themselves actually using that building. It’s phenomenal now, but it’s going to be through the roof when it’s actually done and you can walk them inside there.” The Arkansas baseball team opens the 2014 regular season on Friday, Feb. 14 against Appalachian State. Game time is scheduled for 3:05 p.m. The season opener vs. Appalachian State is one of 35 home games at Baum Stadium during the 2014 season.
