Nebraska baseball coach Darin Erstad met with reporters Thursday to preview the Huskers' 2018 season. The Big Red is coming off a conference championship and returns a number of key players. Among them is Scott Schreiber, who bypassed a professional baseball contract to come back for his senior season. Luis Alvarado also returns, who will be Nebraska's ace pitcher this spring.
Junior infielder Angelo Altavilla believes the Huskers' strengths will be pitching and defense. Altavilla is coming off a breakout sophomore campaign, in which he earned All-Big Ten honors.
