The article hits home.... As many of you know, I was the Head Men's soccer Coach at the University of California - Berkeley for seven years 1993-99. The soccer program at Cal was being eliminated after the 1999 season when I resigned following a 12-5-3 season and another top 35 national ranking and #7 national ranking for best defense. The news of elimination was espeically disappointing because I had already fundraised about $1 million dollars that went into and endowed scholarship fund (that is still fueling the program today) and we had just completed a $3.5 million stadium renovation that I initiated and even gave the first donation to kick off the project when the athletic department showed no interest in supporting it. The current baseball coach was hired in '99 about a month before the announcement came that baseball, soccer, and men's gymnastics (national champions) would be cut......to ease the budget crisis and comply with gender equity Title IX mandates of the NCAA. The programs ultimately survived after private fundraising ..... This time the baseball alumni raised $9 million to save the program. The UC Berkeley Men's baseball team is now in the college world series! This has been a storybook season for CAL.....the program was being eliminated AGAIN after the season due to the continuing budget crisis in the athetic department that dates back to my era coaching there. http://www.ncaa.com/news/baseball/2011-06-15/cal’s-roller-coaster-season-continues

With one of the top bullies in the country.Always a tough call. Do you listen to the player, or conventional wisdom? And we don't know what there conditioning program is like. If there off-day work is 60 or 70 pitches, maybe they can handle it. Some people do have rubber arms. And why can't a trainer get some Immodium for Hultzen before the game? That shit works in a few hours. At the very least some Depends to prevent total public humiliation. I'm sure he's pretty upset today.

With the hot-bats you weren't sure and clearly the scouts can't all look at swings and project. Most go off of results.The kid's HS went to wood for the summer although if you have a BBCOR bat you can use it. I am going a bit contrarian to conventional wisdom about the new bats bringing athleticism into the game with the understanding that I get what you are saying about softball. I think the new rules hurts the good athlete with a great fast-twitch who was very successful in HS ball and got to play some college ball because of it. What I mean is a good athlete with good fast-twitch who was smallish... That guy was indistinguishable from a really good hitter, other than the visual check. Guys with excellent hand-to-eye coordination with crappy swing were bailed out with composites. Little 5'8" 2B hitting as many homers as big white stiff sometimes. There are going to be good athletes who never learned how to swing who now fail. Just this summer our best hitter on HS, I don't think I've seen him get a good hit with wood all summer against above avg. pitching. Certainly he hasn't driven any line drives or gappers. If you've gotten away with not getting barrel on the ball, your are in trouble going forward.Peek, I would also agree and you are probably referring to now having better athletes on defense. Now teams might not carry the fat RF with 25 homers who has to get on the field but was a weak arm/slow feet or whatever. The new bat definitely cuts both ways, if that kid's homers are now flyouts, see-ya.

DP to end inning and runner might have been safe who knows. However that throw from LF to nail the guy at home...sheesh. Loved the rear view of that play. Then Florida goes all Little League on one play to give up the key run.
