Interesting story out of Arizona, where freshman two-way talent Chris Moon has left the second-ranked Wildcats to join the Army. Moon, who starred at national prep power Tucson High, told the Arizona Daily Star, "I talked to my parents and a few other people, and I decided school and baseball weren’t what I wanted to do anymore. It put a lot of stress on me, and it wasn’t as fun anymore."
Moon didn’t figure to be a critical piece for the loaded Wildcats in 2008, but he was a building block for the future, and Arizona will miss him. But as UA coach Andy Lopez told the paper, his departure puts baseball into perspective.
"I’m really appreciative of any young person who joins the military at a time like this, so I can coach baseball and live in a free country," Lopez said.
