The Liberty baseball program will begin its annual fall practice this Sunday at Worthington Stadium.
The Flames, who will take to the field for the fourth year under the direction of Jim Toman, will scrimmage Sunday, beginning at 7:15 p.m. Fall practice will run through Oct. 26.

The team will practice every day except Monday. Practices are open to the public. The program plans to hold intrasquad scrimmages on Tuesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. For practice times, please consult Liberty baseball's Facebook page.

During this year's fall practice, a scout day is planned for Sept. 29 and an alumni game is scheduled for Oct. 9 (during Homecoming Weekend).

The Flames are coming off one of their best seasons in school history. Liberty set school records for most wins in a season with 42 and for Big South victories with 19.

"We have a lot of work to do, but our staff is very excited about the potential of this team," stated Toman. "Usually when you lose nine seniors, you are in rebuilding mode."

"However, I don't really feel that's the case with this particular group. We have more talent in program than we have had in my first three years at Liberty, and we are looking forward to the 2011 season with high expectations."
