Houston Astros College Classic

The Houston Astros College Classic will begin today at noon with Vanderbilt facing off against the Number 1 ranked Owls of Rice. This will be a showcase event for David Price of Vandy and Joe Savery of Rice. Wayne Graham decided against pitching Joe Savery against Price which is disappointing because it would have been a showcase pitching match-up. The other teams involved in the tournament are Texas A&M, Arizona State, Houston, and Baylor. The entire tournament can be watched for $14.95 from MLB.

Edit: Vanderbilt is offering a free webcast of each of their games in this tourney and home games throughout the year at this link for free.

Battery charges for KU Baseball Players


The University Daily Kansan is reporting that two Kansas Baseball players have been cited on battery charges after a fight this weekend at an establishment in Lawrence. The players were Sophomore pitcher Andy Marks and former Jayhawk Sean Land. The Associate athletics director Jim Marchiony knew nothing about the incident when questioned by the Kansan reporter and the baseball coach was not available for comment either. The College Baseball Blog will keep you informed if any suspension is handed out to Mr. Marks.

2007 Missouri Schedule Released


The University of Missouri have released the 2007 schedule. They will be participating in two tournaments this year in addition to their strong Big 12 schedule. They will be taking part in the Spring Training Classic with Arizona State, Gonzaga, and NCAA Champion Oregon State in Surprise AZ. They also will be in the Service Academy Classic in Millington TN with participants BYU, Akron, Memphis and the Naval Academy. The Big 12 home schedule is weak with the best opponents coming to Taylor Stadium being the Kansas Jayhawks and the Oklahoma Sooners.

Full Schedule available here.

Baylor Baseball Rated Number 1


The Baylor Bears recruiting class has been rated number 1 in the nation by Baseball America. The reason for this is that the 2005 CWS run gave the program some national exposure and positive press. The Baylor staff was fighting to get rid of the stigma from the basketball tragedy in 2003. It looks like they have overcame the challenge.

There are also some news and notes in tea article about UNC reloading and Oregon State shuffling up their rotation for next year.

KU releases 2007 schedule


The Kansas Jayhawks will open the season with a nice trip to Hawaii-Hilo for a five game trip. It must be nice to be in Hawaii in February to play baseball. When they return to campus they open up there home schedule against South Dakota State. I believe that starting that early with home games is a mistake and would be shocked if they get those games in. KU has both Texas and Nebraska coming into Lawrence this season and this should bode well for the Jayhawks as they try to get their second straight trip to the NCAA tournament.
