Happy Friday. I hope you’re feeling super because Baseball takes on UNC tomorrow in the Super Regional. Where else have I heard of an Auburn team playing UNC in a Sweet Sixteen? Catch up on that and all the other interesting tidbits of info you may have missed here. Enjoy.

– The journey to get here was long and inconsistent. See how struggling pitchers and a big-armed outfielder helped round the team into form.

– I mentioned last time that the team is playing for something bigger than themselves, head coach Butch Thompson summarized that well.

– Baseball also showed well in the MLB Draft, including some late round guys that will have tough decisions to make. At least one drafted Tiger is still heading to The Plains, though.
