If you can't watch the Texas Rangers/Florida Marlins game telecast on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. on FOX Sports Florida, then tape it because Garrett Wittels will be on both the pre-game show and in the broadcast booth for one inning during the game.
The Marlins pre-game show did a feature on GW that will air before Wednesday's game. GW will also join pregame show host Frank Forte on the Joe Robbie Stadium field for an interview The pre-game show begins at 6:30 p.m. on FOX Sports Florida.
Then during the game, GW will have a headset and a microphone on and be in the booth with the Marlins announcers to offer his take on the streak, the game or whatever the Marlins announcers ask him. FOX Sports Florida has not decided yet what inning GW will be on.
Congratulations to Jabari Henry, who collected another postseason honor when he was named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Freshman All-American Team. It's the 2nd Freshman All-American honor for Jabari along with being named the Sun Belt's Freshman of the Year.
In other FIU baseball news, Scott Rembisz signed with the Marlins and I'm working on getting Scotty to come on here and tell you good people about it.
FIU draftees that signed with MLB teams: Kellin Deglan (Rangers), Wendell Soto (Angels), David Vidal (Reds).
panther viscosity: what about the news on the 5 commitments fiu just received?
Gooch7: PETE, Any news about recruits that have been picked up during the month of June?
PP: The Panthers are looking to build a Northwestern pipeline with commits from LBs Demetrius Allen and Lyndon Edwards and WR Clinton Taylor. FIU also has commits from WR Ya'Keem Griner (Starke Bradford High) and LB Luis Rosado (Gainesville High). This is a nice start, but we're still 7 months and 3 weeks away from NSD so a lot can happen between now and then.
FIUer: Pete, can you have your blog IT guys add to the blogs whether it's "By Pete Pelegrin" or "By Adam Beasley" so we clearly know who's writing what.
FIU FPL: Please add the author to the end of all blog post. Thanks.
PP: FIUer and FIU FPL, got it taken care of as you can see directly above "FIU Panther Pawse" -- PETE. For all readers, the only way you can see the author's name is if you enter the GPP through the main page -- which a lot of people, including myself, do not do -- so I will add my name in all capital letters at the end of each blog post I write from now on.
