Bases Loaded

Each week this section will feature three stories from around the baseball world and a preview of the weekly story in the works. Each base will focus on a different facet of the game. First base will focus on news from college and amateur baseball, second base will feature an update from the world of minor league and independent ball and third base will feature  interesting news from any level of America’s pastime.

First Base- The KU baseball team honored Floyd Temple with a ceremony and the Inaugural Floyd Temple Alumni game Saturday. Temple coached the Jayhawks for 28 years and is the winningest coach in the team’s history.

Second Base- A homerun derby that took place on an aircraft carrier earned the title of “MiLB.com’s best promotion.” The derby took place on the USS Yorktown on the Charleston Harbor. American war veterans were included in the festivities put on by the Charleston RiverDogs.

Third Base- The San Francisco Giants won the 2012 World Series Sunday night in a four-game sweep of the Detroit Tigers. Buster Posey led the way for the Giants with a game-tying two-run homerun in the sixth inning to tie the game at three. Marco Scutaro’s 10th inning RBI single was the deciding run in the 4-3 final score.

Stepping into the box- I am working on a multimedia project on diversity in baseball.
