The Alabama Crimson Tide faced off with the Florida Gators in the third round of the SEC Tournament this afternoon. The Tide received a strong effort from starting pitcher Dylan Smith but could not provide the pitcher with enough run support to threaten the Gators. Florida defeated Alabama 7-2 to stay unbeaten in Hoover and send Alabama into the loser's bracket.
The Alabama Crimson Tide finished 29-22 this season with a conference record of 12-17. The Crimson Tide's effort in conference was enough for the program to make the SEC Tournament for the first time since 2016. With the strong season against tough competition, Brad Bohannon's Crimson Tide had four players earn a combined six spots on the SEC's postseason award list.
The Southeastern Conference released their Baseball Community Service Team this afternoon and Alabama baseball’s second baseman Peyton Wilson was named to the 2021 team. Every year, the SEC highlights an athlete from each school that gives back to their community.
