NCAA baseball remains big business
NASC
Omaha, Nebraska isn't the only place that profits from the NCAA baseball tournament. Omaha, of course, the long-time host of the College World Series, sees the tournament as a major economic driver as well as a showcase for the area. In 2012 it's estimated the tournament generated more than $20 million worth of media coverage for the city. And a report by Goss & Associates Economic Solutions estimates that between 2008 and 2018 the CWS will add $514.8 million to the Omaha economy, or $385.6 million in 2008 dollars.

Girls tackle football? Yeah, it's happening
Yahoo Sports
Recently, 50 fifth- and sixth-graders came to an elementary school field in West Jordan, Utah, to play some football. Parents and coaches marked off a 60-yard-by-35-yard grid for them, and threw out some smaller footballs for them to throw around. It was hardly an abnormal scene, except for the fact that the players were all girls, and when the scrimmage started, they began tackling.

With a 9-8 lead and one out to go to clinch a spot in the Colorado Class 2A state final, Rye High School pitcher Luis "Junior" Ortiz caught a Hotchkiss baserunner with the trick.

College baseball and softball players always have fun despite the pressure
The Times-Picayune
There's no sports like baseball and softball that brings an attitude and atmosphere that you won't find in any other sport. Football, because of the violent nature of the sport, has little room for levity. Basketball is all about being smooth and cool. But nobody has more fun than baseball and softball players, who turn rain delays and rallies into creative laughs.

Youth to Majors, fewer African-Americans are playing baseball
USA Today
Ernie Richardson grew up playing baseball in Mount Vernon and now serves as Mount Vernon High’s varsity baseball coach. “Growing up, you’d see kids playing baseball in the street. You’d see a painted square on a building for a strike zone,” he said. “Baseball saved my life. It kept me out of the streets and gave me an outlet to do things constructively.” But nowadays, he describes baseball as a “dying sport, especially in the black community.”

Would switching to wood bats benefit high school baseball?
USA Today
In case you have not noticed, the bats in high school baseball are not what they used to be. In 2011, a rule change prohibited any and all aluminum bats that did not have a "BBCOR" stamp on it. Why is that stamp so important? BBCOR stands for "Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution" and the idea behind the bats is to minimize the trampoline effect of a ball jumping off of a bat.
