Baseball is here!

Even though some college baseball programs have begun play already, this is the first big weekend of college baseball action. Many of the big programs including open their schedules tonight. Here is the Baseball America preview (http://www.baseballamerica.com/today/college/060203preview.html) of this weekend's action.

EDIT: Please move to Talking Baseball; I though I was there when I posted this. Thanks!

I cant wait for NCAA baseball this year, seeing as Oklahoma State has a chance of being pretty good again if we can come up with a consistent third starter before Big 12 play. I am definitely ready for college basketball to end, just like football this year has not been fun for OSU fans. Hopefully baseball will provide some relief.

My buddy is out on the west coast for awhile. He's pretty lucky. They don't play here until March.

Wow, defending champs Texas got swept by San Diego over the weekend (2-4, 0-6 and 8-12). If Texas has a down year that is certainly good news for the rest of the Big 12.

Arizona Wildcat baseball, which I see when I go to Tucson, took two of three from the Loyola Marymount Lions this weekend. UA is expected to be middle-of-the-Pac 10 this year because they lost a lot of players to the MLB draft.

Check this site out! Torii can beat the hell out of the Sox! But, just on this site! GO SOX! The only thing we have to worry about next October is where the parade route will be!

This stadium, my school (WMU)'s Hyames Field, hosted the first two College World Series in 1947-8. According to our website, "The 1947 CWS featured two famous players. The game saw eventual American League "Most Valuable Player" Jackie Jensen playing outfield for California. Patrolling first base for Yale that afternoon was future U.S. President George Bush." Interesting, isnt it? You would expect this place to be somewhere south...I wonder how we practice when it is 25 degrees out here right now...

I love watching college baseball live but I really only get the chance to watch it here in the midwest. (Illinois) Usually the weather is in the 50's or 60's with a stiff wind blowing your face off.

It's all about the Devils, my friend. Last year's CWS was one of the best I saw because of games like ASU and Nebraska. I love Pac-10 baseball, though.

College Baseball is off to a slow start in Big 12 country. OSU (the offensive giant of the 80s and 90s) got "no-hit" for the first time ever yesterday. This comes after getting 17 runs off 22 hits in 10 innings against an NCAA tournament team the day before.

Usually college baseball teams in colder weather states will practice indoors. I know that the ISU baseball team practiced in the Horton Fieldhouse in the earlygoings of the season when I was down there.

The Harvard University Band is now playing as the truck is loaded some 1,000 fans are at the park

The Red Sox official statement
"In any baseball city, the truck's departure for Spring Training connects with a lot of fans. In Boston and in New England, that is magnified so many times over. Instead of just making it our little private fireplace of warmth, you want to connect with the fans, resonate with the fans, share it with the fans, give them a chance to celebrate spring as well.
"When you see the images of snow at one end and sunshine at the other ... this trip is a metaphor. Winter is going to end. Spring is going to come. And baseball is the robin. Baseball heralds spring. You want to celebrate that."


Sure. Itís also a day when a truck leaves.
