Brief but effective.
That’s how University of New Mexico baseball coach Ray Birmingham summed up his team’s fall practice session. The Lobos shut things down earlier this month when Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham tightened the state’s coronavirus restrictions, limiting gatherings to five people.
It wasn’t a major blow, Birmingham said.
“We saw what we needed to see,” he said. “We got 12 scrimmages in and that was really enough. COVID restrictions cost us a little developmental time but we’re in good shape. Hopefully we can make progress fighting this virus over the next three months.”
