It’s the first weekend of the NCAA baseball tournament

Typically, we talk about major league ball in this space, or at least professional ball. Every once in a while, though, college baseball takes center stage, and this is the time of year for that to happen.

The draft is right around the corner, and all of this amateur talent is about to come into the forefront. Before that happens, we will see some of that talent on the big stage for the College World Series. The College World Series in Omaha is one of the most exciting events of the year, and before we can even get to that point, we have to go through the 64-team tournament, which is kicking off this weekend.

In light of the discovery that he’s a registered sex offender, Luke Heimlich, who plays for Oregon State, requested to be removed from the roster for his team’s upcoming appearance in the super regionals.

You thought we were done with NCAA baseball news? Nope! Davidson and Texas A&M played a 15 inning game on Friday, which is the longest in super regionals history.

Jace Peterson, who is currently playing for the Triple-A Gwinnett Braves, made an absolutely insane catch yesterday. Everyone says that you’ve gotta see it, but you’ve really gotta see it.

It’s only been a few months, but things are already getting awkward with Ian Desmond and his five-year contract with the Rockies.

Yoenis Cespedes will eventually be back with the Mets, and when he is, Curtis Granderson should play in right field.

A half-naked man ran onto the field during a game between the Giants and Brewers, and Grant Brisbee wrote about it because … well, how could he not?

Florida State allows game-tying run on a wild, blunder-filled play

In the evening session of the College World Series’ opening salvo, No. 4 LSU and Florida State are engaged in a spectacular, error-filled game, that’s already seen the Seminoles commit two errors. LSU has capitalized on all of FSU’s mistakes, holding the score down to a 4-3 Seminole advantage.

In the bottom of the eighth inning, though, some truly hair-raising baseball transpired, as Antoine Duplantis singled through the right side with a man on first. FSU right fielder Austin Wells mishandled the ball while fielding, letting it get by him, which advanced Duplantis to second and Cole Freeman over to third.

Oregon State does learn when a student is a registered sex offender, according to university spokesman Steve Clark. Oregon State Police send the university a list of registered sex offenders in Benton County on a regular ongoing basis, Clark said. The university then cross-checks those names with its student database to verify sex offenders who have enrolled.

The incident came to light as Benton Country, Oreg. sheriffs started investigating sex offenders who’d let their registrations as such drop. Heimlich’s registration lapsed in April, and The Oregonian learned of his past crime through a public records request.

Heimlich’s matriculation to Oregon State predates a 2015 updated policy on the part of the university that mandates student athletes to register any felony convictions they have in their past.

Heimlich’s status for the rest of the tournament remains unclear.
