Anchor Drop, May 12, 2023: A weekend in Florida

Vanderbilt baseball travels to Gainesville tonight. Also, why is this starting at 4:30?

Good morning.

Optional Musical Accompaniment

Vanderbilt baseball opens a three-game weekend series at Florida tonight with the rotation suddenly in flux, after Carter Holton missed the trip to Louisville on Tuesday and his status for tonight is uncertain (the game notes still list him as the probable starter tonight, though.) Anyway, tonight’s game is bizarrely early, with first pitch at 4:30 PM CT on the SEC Network.

Gordon Sargent was tabbed as the SEC Player of the Year ahead of next week’s NCAA Regional, where Vanderbilt is the #1 national seed.

I don’t really have much else today. This is the time of year when the news starts to get slow.
