Wittels meets the media, acquits himself quite well

As you've probably heard, FIU Baseball's Media Day was all about Garrett. Despite original threats to ban anyone asking Wittels about his pending rape charges, athletic director Pete Garcia clarified before the session, saying we were free to ask any question, and they were free to refuse to answer any question.

Despite what you might have heard elsewhere, it was pretty tame considering the situation. There was a reporter or two that might have gotten a little carried away, but Wittels stood his ground, spoke about what he wanted to and dismissed questions he didn't care to address.

Here are a few links from the press conference:
