Prices Have Unique Coaching Bond

Jim Shonerd -

Baseball is often referred to as a game for fathers and sons, evoking images of families like the Griffeys and Ripkens and serving as a common experience with which most any fan or player can relate. And then there are Kansas head coach Ritch Price and his son Ritchie of South Dakota State, Division I's youngest head coach at age 25, a father and son who have a unique connection amidst the baseball landscape. There have been other father-son pairs to both enter the college coaching ranks, but, according to Baseball America's research, the Prices are the first such combo to be leading D-I programs at the same time.

Craig Handel -

The Atlantic Sun Conference has taken some huge hits from defections. Losses of Central Florida, Florida International and Florida Atlantic hurt the A-Sun, particularly in baseball.

The disparity is even more glaring on our preseason All-America team selected by major league scouting directors, which includes only NCAA Division I players and thus excludes CC of Southern Nevada catcher Bryce Harper, the top overall prospect and best power hitter in the 2010 draft. Furthermore, the top D-I position player is Rice sophomore third baseman Anthony Rendon, who won't be draft-eligible until 2011.

College Baseball’s Best Of The Decade

Aaron Fitt and John Manuel -

To celebrate the recently completed decade, we put together an All-2000s team to honor the best of the best. Like our annual All-America teams, this team recognizes four starting pitchers, three outfielders, one two-way or "utility" player and one player at every other position. We selected the team and our decade award winners by sending out ballots to every Division I head coach, and 150 of them responded. Pie charts for each position indicate what percentage of the vote each player got at his position. The highest vote-getters who did not make the team were then considered for the DH position.
