BLOG: Hello from the Lone Star State.
I’m planning on making this page the College Station Regional home page, as far as the Oxford EAGLE is concerned. Bookmark this page and check back regularly for related links, scoring summaries, videos, interviews, pictures and more.
Also, HERE is a link to Texas A&M’s regional home page. There you’ll be able to find the Aggies’ video, statistics, results, box scores and the tournament bracket.
Luckily for us, it appears the worst of the weather is now behind us. The next three days are expected to be sunny withhighs hovering around 95.
ALL-AMERICA SELECTION: The latest news comes from Collegiate Baseball, which named Ole Miss junior second baseman Alex Yarbrough an All-American.
Heading into the regional, Yarbrough is hitting a team-best .389 with three home runs, 17 doubles, 41 RBIs, .517 slugging percentage, .442 on-base percentage, and, perhaps most impressive, he’s fielding .992 (83 putouts, 171 assists, two errors).
Yarbrough also had a team-high 22-game hitting streak earlier in the year and leads Ole Miss with 28 multiple-hit games.
The honor is only the most-recent for Yarbrough, who was named to the All-SEC First Team and Defensive Teams on Tuesday.
