Coach Will Bolt got a look this fall at the Husker baseball team that must replace all four captains from last year's team.
Jay Unger, a sophomore pitcher and infielder at Blair, committed to Nebraska last week and hopes he can be a "building block" for the future of Husker baseball. "I wanted to be a part of it.”
The final game of the Red-White Series left more clues for what the Huskers might look like next spring, when they’ll be defending Big Ten champions looking to eventually host an NCAA regional.
Pitchers having the upper hand was a welcome sight for Bolt, who saw Nebraska's hitters outperform the pitchers for much of the fall.

The general consensus during intrasquad games this fall has been that Nebraska hitters are ahead of the pitchers. Not the case in the latest seven-inning game with a combined 22 strikeouts.
The final seven-inning game of the Red-White Series is Wednesday; it's tied 1-1.
