February Issue of Hail Varsity Celebrates Baseball’s Return and More

February 18, 2022

The staff at Hail Varsity loves pretty much all of the sports, and, sure, we all probably have a favorite if forced to choose but it would be a different favorite depending upon who you ask. That’s good.

My favorite? I’d probably give the most common answer––football. It’s the thing I think about year-round. But if we get more specific and think about the starts to all of these various sports, the beginning of a baseball season is pretty tough to beat.

Maybe it’s the promise of warmer days ahead, or simply being outside soon. It certainly doesn’t hurt this year with Nebraska ranked in the preseason top-25s and picked as the favorite in the Big Ten.

Staff writer Steve Marik gets you ready for the season in this month’s cover story, a comprehensive preview of Husker baseball. What are the key questions facing Nebraska as it begins a highly-anticipated year? Who are the players to watch? Marik hits on that all and more.
