The Liberty baseball program held its annual Scout Night, Tuesday evening at Worthington Stadium.

All Liberty players took part in the evening, as Scout Night has become part of the Flames' fall practice. The night drew approximately 20 scouts from various major league teams.

Players were able to display their skills, as the night opened with fielding drills. The Flames then took batting practice, before 12 Liberty pitchers threw in game simulation situations.

Fall practice for the Flames runs Tuesday through Sunday at Worthington Stadium. Liberty will break this weekend for Fall Break, and continue practice sessions next Tuesday. Fall practice concludes with two intra-squad, three-game "Super Regionals." The first "Super Regional" begins on Oct. 17 and runs through Oct.19. The second concludes fall practice and is scheduled for Oct. 21 to Oct. 23.
