Seamless transition? Coaches say new ball should boost offense — but maybe not in CWS

Ran across this Saturday night and took a minute to read it.  Brought back memories of the 1998 CWS which they talked about in the article.  That was my first trip to Omaha.

I remember Mark Freed taking the mound for us in the elimination game against Southern Cal.  Mark threw pretty hard then.  Low 90’s I think.  Had two balls come back at him at an excessive speed.  So much so that one ball took his glove off his hand and carried it toward second base.  Those bats were hot.  And then came the LSU-Southern Cal football game that Raz and Bryan went to.  21-14.

Will the new balls bring back memories of the Launching Pad on the Hill?  Naaaa.  Not even close.

Yet another preseason preview of the Diamond Dawgs.  This one from the NCAA itself.

Check it out, then make plans to catch at least ONE of the scrimmages this weekend.  Preferably Saturday at 12:30 PM AFTER you have attended Fan Day and gotten your posters schedules signed.

So two things:  Read the article below, and make plans to be here this weekend.  Read and plan.  Kinda like duck and cover, only more fun.
