In my email box today, I find a press release from Todd Lamb at Ohio State. Lamb, the Assistant Athletics Communications Director at OSU, President of the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association and The Hardest Working Man In Show Business, informs us all that the Buckeyes have named their 2006 captains.
Dan DeLucia, Jacob Howell and Jedidiah Stephen have been chosen by their teammates as captains this year. Congratulations to all three on the honor. Here is the official release.
In other Big Ten baseball news, Lucas Deal, of the Daily Illini, pens this piece about Illinois' first practice of 2006. New coach Dan Hartleb has to replace a number of players this year.
Finally, in browsing through Fox Sports' Dayn Perry's list of the Top 100 MLB prospects, I've found two Big Ten players. Former Michigan Wolverines Rich Hill and Jake Fox have made the list that is still a work in progress. Hill came in at number seventy-one, while Fox is number ninety.
