Following a season where Kentucky had 13 players selected in MLB Draft, the Wildcats are in rebuilding mode. Even in a down season, Kentucky Baseball is not the most dysfunctional team in the state, that title may belong to Western Kentucky this season.
On Friday night, at Ruston High School (LA), where Louisana Tech has been forced to play following an EF-3 tornado, the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers and Louisiana Tech Bulldogs matched up for the first game of a weekend series.
Louisana Tech outfielder, Steele Netterville, struck out swinging with bases loaded that secured 5-4 victory for the Hilltoppers, but on his backswing, he appeared to had made accidental contact with WKU catcher, Collin Hopkins’ outstretched arm.
While Western Kentucky is not at the level of the University of Louisville in athletics nor scandals, they have done their fair share to deserve their mockery.
WKU baseball head coach, John Pawlowski, would be great friends with Billy Gillespie with his DUI charge, and the WKU basketball program had five suspensions just this past season.
Don’t forget, in Kentucky’s two matchups against the Hilltoppers this season, they have handled them fairly easily with 15-0 and 15-4 wins.
