Captains In Columbus

Seniors Dan DeLucia and Jacob Howell along with juniors Matt Angle and Eric Fryer have been named captains of the Ohio State University baseball team for 2007. In their comments about the upcoming season, I noted a repetitive theme -- defense.

It would be interesting to know if the players felt '06 was a poor defensive year or if Coach Todd is stressing defense this fall with the loss of two big bats (Ronnie Bourquin and Jedidiah Stephen) and the team's strong returning pitching.
