Fall Report: Vanderbilt


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – It was an unusual fall for the Vanderbilt Commodores. The team cancelled their annual Black & Gold series at the end of the fall due to multiple injuries, according to the program. It was also a fall of roster uncertainty and newness for head coach Tim Corbin, who has some new coaches on his staff as well as a large number of new recruits. Vanderbilt and Corbin have a very specific, very detailed, and in recent memory, very successful way of doing things so getting all the new pieces up to speed can take some time and effort.

A team loaded with raw talent from freshmen to seniors, there really is no concern as to whether this team has enough high upside baseball players. From Corbin’s perspective, it is simply going to be a matter of whether they are ready to perform at the level he expects and thrives against SEC competition. This is a supremely sharp eyed head coach that has seemed to know exactly when his players are ready for the spotlight. But this is a team that also has some questions to answer, and a lot of them, headed into the spring. There are many roles yet to be defined and the coaching staff knows it.
