Baseball Season Begins!
While we stop to ponder the greatness of Longhorn Kevin Durant (37 points, season high 23 rebounds against Tech night last night), remember that the Texas baseball season begins tomorrow at Dell Diamond with a three-game set against the San Diego Toreros.
San Diego has begun their season 3-0, and is ranked #46 in the Baseball America Preseason Poll. Look for sophomore Jordan Danks to be an offensive force for Texas (Though his older brother John Danks, the "untouchable" lefthander in the Rangers farm system, has now been traded away to the White Sox for pitcher Brandon McCarthy.)
With 20 letter winners returning this year, including new ace Randy Boone (4-2, 3.59 ERA last season for Texas) Texas should have every chance to move deep into the College World Series this year.
Until then, I must begin my bracket research. March Madness is right around the corner, people!
