Foley’s Quick Hits for March 29th

Here are some of my thoughts from college baseball action that took place on March 29th.

The perfect game was only the 19th in NCAA Division 1 baseball history at any length and the first by a UVA pitcher in school history. It was also the first in Division 1 since 2002. Interesting enough, the second to last sentence of the George Washington press release is the first mention they make about the perfect game being tossed.  Continue reading
