Tyler Shreve, the freshman quarterback who has looked strong in spring practice, is pulling double duty and also playing for Utah's baseball team.
The former high school baseball star pitched two-thirds of the ninth inning Tuesday, entering with one out and a runner on base. He walked the first batter and got himself in a jam when he hit the next batter to load the bases. However, he got the next two to ground out.
Tuesday was Shreve's first appearance for the Utes, who used five pitchers in the 15-3 win over Utah Valley.
Today Shreve will be back in his football uniform with the Utes scheduled to practice from 3-to-5 p.m.
