"We're throwing strikes,  we're throwing it well, and picking it, and getting off the field," Gamble says. "I think that's a big deal, even as the weather turns and everybody gets a little more of that baseball fever and the tournament nears, you still got to be able to throw and pick it."

Jackson returns 16 young men and they understand the concepts and the culture set by the coaching staff, according to Gamble.

"Guys are competing like heck for playing time, for starts, and it all starts with our competitive practices."
