Alabama Head Baseball Coach Brad Bohannon joined The Gary Harris show this morning. Bohannon talked to Harris about the abrupt end to the baseball season and the NCAA's decision to grant an extra year of eligibility to his players.

Bohannon spoke about the challenge of managing an increased roster size next season with several seniors coming back for an additional year and a new freshman class coming to the Capstone.

The baseball team was 16-1 this season, the best start in 23-years for the program,  when the NCAA decide to cancel the season because of the rapid spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus. Alabama was about to play its first SEC series against Missouri. Coach Bohannon called the cancellation of the season "gut-wrenching".

Bohannon lamented that while he will get several players back for 2021, the chemistry will inevitably be different and may not yield the same success that the 2020 season was producing.

The players are all at home spread throughout the country and making the best of the circumstances. Bohannon hopes the team will be able to participate in college summer baseball but admitted that may not be an option.
