    Gotta agree with you Joe I like the strategy behind small ball... When we were younger professional baseball seemed much more of a kids game...one that kids could go to and enjoy...today it costs almost as much to go to a game as it does to take a vacation.

    Ron: It is a pure game...at the college level...you have team mates...professionally they are associates...and players.

    I don't follow college baseball through out the season but starting with the regionals and ending with the championship game -it is fantastic. Those kids play with heart and emotion that is just not found in the pros. Like the LSU centerfielder who gave up his scholarship and told the coach -my family doesn;t need the money, give it to a player who will help us get to Omaha ( the site of the CWS). Then top seeded LSU gets eliminated in the super regionals by lowly Stony Brook. A fourth seed from the Atlanic conference that has never had a team get past the first round. Go underdogs. www.ncaa.com has the game dates and times. Most are on one of the ESPN channels.
    Womens college softball is also a great experience but they already finished last weekend.
