MSU pitcher Cole Gor­don has ben­e­fit­ted al­ready from the knowl­edge of Fitts and looks for­ward to pick­ing his brain fur­ther.

“He was here my red­shirt fresh­man year and we had a chance to get real close then,” Gor­don said. “He's al­ways shar­ing

lit­tle tid­bits and things here or there. Just his knowl­edge of the game, what he brings, just talk­ing and friend­ship helps a lot. He'll be able to calm us down and Trevor is go­ing to be a vi­tal as­set.”

Now Gor­don is a leader of a young team with sev­eral fresh­men play­ing key roles.

Fitts has wit­nessed the Bull­dogs grow­ing right in front of his eyes.

““It's awe­some to watch our fresh­men that showed up, just played and ac­cepted it like coach (Gary) Hen­der­son has said mul­ti­ple times,” Fitts said. “It's re­ally just a fun team to be around, en­joy the youth and ev­ery­thing else.”
