Yup. This starts in their younger summer leagues and just continues from there. I used to follow my cousin around for her travel ball (we would plan summer vacations around one of the out-of-state tourneys each year) so I got to hear a whole bunch of them.

Since I was a little kid and didn't enjoy watching the sport that much, I collected and traded team pins during/between games. It was something basically all the travel teams did. You would buy a whole bunch of your team's pins and then trade them for pins of the other teams that you meet in the tournaments. Different pins would have different value depending on size, whether they had blinky lights, or dangly bits attached by a chain.

I used to have a big binder with felt pages that I kept my collection in. Don't know where it's at now, though. Was fun to do.

Oh yeah, those girls play serious, too. My cousin played shortstop and had her collar bone snapped when she tried to field a grounder and the base runner just plowed right into her.

With Stanford and UNC gone, it's good news for the Beavs, obviously. Routing for Mississippi and Wake Forest. Vanderbilt will be quite the test. They have arguably the top college pitching prospect and top college OF prospect. Hitting will be the reason why the Beavs reach Omaha. Need to help the pitchers out this week.

aww, I was kinda wanting to go down to SpringyMO for the Supers (and they could have hosted, too: they share Hammons Field with the Cards AA team, and the Baby Birds are away)

that UofK-UL matchup is going to be utterly lit, and it sucks that the Louisville AAA team has a home series this weekend because it'd easily sell out that stadium

Chad Holbrook did us a favor and resigned, thank god. He's a class act of a guy who was really active in the community, so it sucks it didn't work out, but unfortunately there's a little more to coaching than just that. I'm really curious and excited about this search -- Ray Tanner implied he's willing to write a blank check, and we should have no trouble attracting some big names.

They lost that one in 15 btw.

Also in game 2 they gave up the tying and go ahead runs in the 8th on an infield popup where the second and third basemen collided and the one who made the catch dropped it when he hit the ground.

I gotta say I watched the highlights of A&M beating Davidson and I'm not entirely sure the dropped catch should have been ruled as such

More about the paper. I've heard multiple people complaining about the paper digging into the past for no reason.

The pitcher got a standing ovation last weekend from what I heard.

It would have come out anyway. I have to assume MLB teams do routine background checks on top prospects, and this would have come up. A talent like him going undrafted would have raised serious questions, and someone would have provided the answer.

Yeah, that's what gets me. I don't know why people are mad at the paper. He would have been drafted Monday if this hadn't come out, and someone in a major city would do some basic research.

Then there's this whole, "he was just a kid thing." 15 is old enough to know not to surprise sex a child.

CWS starts today at 2 PM Omaha time, 3 Eastern. Two pods of four teams apiece, double elimination, leading to a best of 3 final series. Bracket.

The only good thing about the lovely super regional round is that the CWS is stacked. Louisville is a slight favorite, but they'll have to go through preseason #1 TCU, Florida, and a hot Texas A&M team. Oregon State would be the easy favorite even in this field with Heimlich, but now they're joint second with LSU. Florida State had a bad year by their standards but picked up to win the ACC tournament; Fullerton's along for the ride but definitely have the history to hang in. Should be a good ten days.

Fullerton got out to a big start, up 3-0 in the first and 5-1 as late as the 6th. Beavers have tied it up now though, 5-5 in the 7th.

edit: OSU wins, 6-5. Fullerton had the chance, couldn't take it.

Kevin O'Sullivan is rumored by several reputable sources to be our top target right now, which is a little hard to understand for several reasons. It'd be a largely lateral move for him and he's already getting paid a shitload, but he has been frustrated with the lack of fan/administrative support for his program and may not feel as loyal (for lack of a better word) to Florida's new AD. Of course, if UF finally breaks through and wins it all this year, there's a 0% chance of him coming here.

Clemson's Monte Lee, who probably would've already been our coach had the timing worked out, is supposedly not quite out of the running either. Again, I don't believe it would happen, but stealing him from Clemson would be absolutely incredible.

Don't expect to see another college team as good as this year's OSU any time soon.
