Moorhead, MN (WDAY TV) - The local college baseball season continues to be pushed back, much like all spring sports waiting to actually hit the field. That's not the case at Concordia.

Thanks to the Sprinturf on the infield, the Cobbers were outside Tuesday afternoon getting some practice in. Concordia has played a majority of its games at the Metrodome, but they did get outside last week at Dickinson as they try to get into form the best they can. Having the turf field, as opposed to grass, certainly helps.

Bucky Burgau – Concordia Head Coach: “It takes a lot of skill and hard work to maintain a baseball field and do it properly - from home plate to the mound to dragging the infield to getting the outfield grass right - and what this does is allows is allows players and coaches to play and practice the game more than we've ever done before this early in the season.

Brian Guler – Concordia Senior 1st Baseman: “It's a whole new atmosphere compared to being inside--bigger sky, fly balls, ground balls, everything's different, from taking grounders off wood floors, bounces are different. It's just a good opportunity for us to be outside now.”
