NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) -  It's time to play ball.

At Tulane, that means it's time to play baseball.

After a season of 35 wins and 25 losses last year, Tulane is ready to begin a 56-game season this Friday.

WGNO News with a Twist features guy Wild Bill Wood wonders how the players are warming up for the big game.

So Wild Bill heads out to the old "ball game" to talk with three Tulane players.

Hunter Williams, is a junior majoring in neuroscience, with plans to be a doctor,

Hunter is number 39 and plays first base.

Tim Yandel, a senior marketing major is a pitcher and number five.

And Emerson Gibbs, number 29, is a finance major and a senior.  Emerson is a pitcher for Tulane.

Wild Bill knows preditions are for a winning season this year for Tulane.  But just in case there are problems on the field, there are solutions not far from the field.

Those solutions for the players are in the concessions stand.

That's where you can get popcorn, soft drinks and since this is a New Orleans concessions stand, you can get poboys and jambalaya.

Tulane starts the 2016 season playing Illinois this Friday night at 6:30 pm.
