Former Charlotte 49er baseball player Stu Cole is in his second season as the Colorado Rockies third base coach.

Former NC State pitcher Carlos Rodon made his Carolina League debut for the Winston-Salem Dash on Wednesday afternoon, pitching one inning in a 12-2 victory against the Frederick Keys.

ACC Commissioner John Swofford had plenty to smile about in Greensboro last weekend: In the space of a year, the future of the ACC was safely secured – along with a national championship in football.

Complete Carolina will provide financial and advising support to former athletes to help them finish their UNC-Chapel Hill degrees.

Americans tie first game, win second o5-2 during Saturday double-header at Durham Athletic Park.

It was nothing but sunshine, strikeouts and fireworks for Team USA in Friday’s Fourth of July contest.

Tuesday’s game started as a blowout by the Americans, but Chinese Taipei stuck around and the fans on hand were treated to an interesting new set of extra-innings rules.

The Duke baseball offense for next season was dealt a major blow Wednesday when all-ACC 1B/RF Chris Marconcini opted to play his final year of eligibility at Florida State.

Virginia’s Mike Papi said coach Brian O’Connor’s Omaha-area roots are an intangible that helps the team. O’Connor grew up in neighboring Council Bluffs, Iowa, and pitched for Creighton in Omaha.

Waxhaw’s Preston Morrison didn’t get offers from area major colleges, but helps TCU make College World Series.

NC State’s Carlos Rodon goes No. 3 overall to the Chicago White Sox. He was joined in the first round by teammate Trea Turner (No. 13 to San Diego) and ECU pitcher Jeff Hoffman (No. 9 to Toronto).

Carlos Rodon was born in Miami and his father says there are a lot of Cuban fans hoping the Marlins take him with the second pick in Thursday’s baseball draft.

Six times – virtually one year in three since the Durham Bulls Athletic Park opened – the conference brought its baseball tournament to Durham, most recently in 2013.

Trea Turner twice was cut from a high school travel team, but he grew into a three-time All-American at NC State. Thursday night, he’ll likely join Carlos Rodon as a first-round pick in the MLB draft.

Jeff Hoffman will watch the baseball draft on Thursday from his home in Latham, N.Y., and for a while, he will not be happy. Hoffman, a junior right-hander at East Carolina, began the season hoping to be selected first overall.
