Duke baseball 2022 season preview

(02/18/22 3:48am)

As Hall of Famer Rogers Hornsby said, all that you can do in winter is “stare out the window and wait for spring.” The calendar may still say winter, but baseball is back, and this Duke team has a lot to be excited about this season. The Blue Devils will have to replace the offense of Michael Rothenberg, Ethan Murray, Joey Loperfido and Peter Matt, but they return Chris Crabtree, RJ Schreck and Graham Pauley, the last player in that list being someone who head coach Chris Pollard praised in the team’s preseason media day. On the bump, Jack Carey has gone on to pro ball and Henry Williams will miss the season after undergoing Tommy John surgery, but it is likely that Cooper Stinson will once again be the Friday starter with last year’s closer Marcus Johnson and sophomore Luke Fox likely rounding out the weekend trio. Additionally, the freshman class for this year is loaded, checking in at ninth in the national recruiting rankings. -Jake Piazza 

Duke must take advantage of its new virtual infrastructure

To many, Duke’s stagnation regarding an evolving pandemic is concerning. As new variants emerge, COVID-19 protocols regarding masking policy and asymptomatic testing remain largely unchanged. Furthermore, Duke has not comprehensively introduced virtual accommodations for students who must miss class for health conditions other than COVID-19—accommodations that Duke clearly developed during the pandemic. This discrepancy reveals that Duke does not have adequate accommodative measures for students who must miss class on the basis of personal health conditions, which students have dealt with even before the pandemic. All professors learned how to use new resources, such as Zoom, as a result of pandemic instruction changes. Therefore, Duke now has the opportunity to ameliorate its student health accommodations by expanding its new technological infrastructure.
