Fantasy Baseball: Hitters a top draft priority

Baseball season is right around the corner and I can't wait.

I was the kid in first grade who replied "Baseball," when asked what my favorite season was.



God didn't give me the talent to play in college or at the professional level. But I do feel He gave me an incredible mind for the sport, which isn't really helpful unless I want to bug everyone I am watching a game with or I'm going to be a sports writer.



At least I'm not wasting what I do have.

Two seniors say farewell to Frog faithful this weekend

When the men's basketball team takes the court Saturday night at Daniel-Meyer Coliseum, it will be the last time in front of the home crowd for two seniors.

Forwards Kevin Langford and John Ortiz said they want to end their career at the coliseum with a win.



"Right now it feels like any other game coming up," Langford said. "That might change on game day. But sometimes you don't want it to end, playing college basketball has been pretty fun."

Baseball team defeats Bobcats in fourth straight win

The baseball team has now won four straight games after snapping the Texas State University Bobcats' three-game win streak.

After giving up two runs in the top of the first, the Horned Frogs recovered and scored eight unanswered runs on the way to the 8-2 victory.



"That was probably the best Greg Holle has pitched since coming to TCU," head coach Jim Schlossnagle said. "We played good defense behind him and got enough timely hits to stretch (the lead) out and we had a lot of guys throw well out of the bullpen."

Doing away with steroid testing too risky


After just 11 positives out of 28,934 tests since last year, the University Interscholastic League is considering cutting back on steroid testing.

Scaling down testing in high school sports in Texas is a terrible idea.



Sure the testing program costs $6 million, but can you put a price on the safety and future of our high school athletes?
