By Travis Young – With the Vanderbilt baseball team preparing for its trip to Japan this weekend, I caught up with Sonny Gray and Andrew Giobbi and asked them what they are expecting of the trip and how the team will make the adjustment to using wood bats.
In the interview with Sonny, he discusses what he has told the team about playing against the fundamentally and mechanically sound teams from Japan and their style of play. The sophomore righthander got a dose of Japan’s style when he spent the summer playing for the 2009 USA team.
The team will depart from its headquarters, Hawkins Field at 6 a.m., on Saturday.
