Davidson is the Cinderella of the NCAA Division I Baseball Tournament – CBSSports.com

Monday, June 05, 2017

The Davidson Wildcats during the regular season went a middling 13-11 in Atlantic 10 play and made the field of 64 only after a title run in the A-10 tourney. They entered the NCAA Tournament with an RPI ranking of 126. If one were inclined toward bad jokes, one might say something like “Haha, lol, that’s more like an RIP ranking,” but I am not so inclined. Anyhow, despite that…

Arkansas baseball wins six-hour game that ends at 3:10 a.m. to save its season – CBSSports.com

Monday, June 05, 2017

It isn’t often that a game scheduled to start in the afternoon ends at 3 in the morning. Arkansas and Missouri State defied logic, by playing a game that did exactly that. It was a strange night all the way through, a six-hour romp that included a reset in the third inning — at 12:35 a.m. The Razorbacks were ultimately victorious, forcing a winner-take all match against Southern Missouri on…

Daily Fantasy Baseball Advice for June 5 – FOXSports.com

Monday, June 05, 2017

Starting pitcher: Carlos Martinez ($12,500) is the best pitcher on the board, but his matchup at Cincinnati isn’t great, and he’s so much more expensive than the rest of the SPs … Dan Straily ($9,100) looks solid against the Cubs if you get used to the idea that we’re two months into the season and the Cubs still aren’t hitting. But don’t you get the feeling that they have to…

Yale baseball team tops Holy Cross, eliminated by No. 1 Oregon State – New Haven Register

Monday, June 05, 2017

CORVALLIS, Ore. >> The best season in the long history of Yale baseball came to an end in the most appropriate of ways. It came a game after setting the school record for wins in a season. It also came a game after the first multiple-victory NCAA Tournament showing since 1948. The final blow was delivered by the clear-cut, best team in the country in…

High school baseball player of the year – Atlanta Journal Constitution

Monday, June 05, 2017

Toughest high school opponent: Team-wise, definitely Parkview just because they’re so sound all-around. One to nine, every single one can hit, and they play very good defense, and they usually have one or two (Division I) arms that can throw. The toughest pitcher I’ve faced is probably Brant Hurter of Woodstock. He’s 6-6 and long to the plate. He can run it up to 92, 94 mph, and it looks…

Birmingham holds off Chatsworth to win Division I baseball title – Los Angeles Times

Sunday, June 04, 2017

The Birmingham High baseball coach was winded by so many sprints to the mound trying to keep his pitcher composed.

The fans were getting nervous, particularly the seniors who were supposed to head on a bus to Disneyland for grad night right afterward. Yes, there was a lot of pressure Saturday afternoon on…

How will next 5 years treat these borderline baseball legacies? – New York Post

Saturday, June 03, 2017

The month of May has come and gone, and seemingly taken with it two excellent careers. Ryan Howard hit .184 at Triple-A for the Braves and was released on May 8. A week later, Atlanta star first baseman Freddie Freeman was lost for a few months when he fractured his thumb. The Braves signed James Loney to a minor league deal then traded for Matt Adams rather than rekindle a…

How REMINGTON the therapy dog became a part of UNC’s baseball team – News & Observer

Friday, June 02, 2017

The most famous dog in college baseball isn’t letting all of this recent attention go to his head. He still does the things he’s always done: opens refrigerators to retrieve Gatorade or water; “whispers” on command; provides a comforting, friendly, presence for North Carolina’s baseball team. REMINGTON, and, yes, his name is spelled in all capital letters, has become something of a celebrity in recent days and weeks, but he’s…

Judge is tight end-size, but was always baseball player at heart – MyAJC

Friday, June 02, 2017

The red-zone play was called, appropriately enough, “Jump Pass,” and Coach Mike Huber would call it from the sidelines by simply raising both hands in the air, as if to signal a touchdown. He didn’t care if the opposition knew what was coming — they couldn’t defend it anyway. His Linden High quarterback would simply lob a pass into the end zone, where his 6-foot-7, 240-pound wide receiver, a…
