Oregon State leads field of 64 in 2014 Division I Baseball tournament

The field of 64 teams competing for the 2014 NCAA Division I Baseball Championship was announced today by the NCAA Division I Baseball Committee.

The national top eight seeds are Oregon State (42-12), Florida (40-21), Virginia (44-13), Indiana (42-13), Florida State (43-15), La.-Lafayette (53-7), TCU (42-15) and LSU (44-14-1). The top eight seed for Indiana marks a first for a Big Ten institution.

Both my current school (Oregon State) and my undergrad (Cal Poly) are number one seeds in their regions, pretty cool. Anyway, there are links to the full bracket in the article for those interested in the college tournament.

Ohio State freshman pitcher Zach Farmer diagnosed with leukemia

Zach had not been feeling good for approximately a week when he went to see our team doctors on Monday,” [Ohio State coach Greg] Beals said. “Blood tests were drawn as doctors originally suspected mono. The tests came back negative for mono, but abnormalities in the blood count showed leukemia. Further blood tests were done to led us to this diagnosis.”

Farmer, a lefthanded starter from Piketon, had a 6-4 record with a 3.28 ERA in nine starts this season. In 49.1 innings, Farmer had held opponents to a .234 batting average. While at Piketon High, Farmer was a four-year letterwinner and three-time first team All-Ohio selection. He went 10-1 with a 0.52 ERA and 162 strikeouts in 81 innings as a senior.
