Campbell Notes

Campbell is coming off a strong season in 2023, winning the Big South Conference championship before moving to the Coastal Athletic Association in 2024. 

The Fighting Camels lost top players this year, but you would not be able to tell after their wins over East Carolina and UC Santa Barbara, both in the college baseball top 25. Campbell will be a very difficult series for Ohio and will show just how good the team can be moving forward.

Players to Watch

Gideon Antle was astounding in the first three games for Ohio with a .733 batting average, a 1.333 slugging percentage and 4 RBIs. Freshman JR Nelson also shined in the first three games for Ohio, batting .667 with a .769 on-base percentage.

On the pitching side, senior LHP Jacob Tate had a solid start to the season, pitching four innings and only allowing one earned run in Saturday’s matchup against Lipscomb.
