Good Morning and Happy Monday!
Since their season could end at any time, I'd like to tell you about my scorebook and how I helped the Tar Heels make it to their first College World Series since 2013.
I started being interested in baseball in high school for a boy (hint: it worked), but then my interest quickly became a beast of its own. I loved the game, but I was tired of not knowing the details, and let's face it: baseball is a long game. So I started scoring them (writing down plays and pitch counts, basically a lab report) and after two years, I have two scorebooks full of UNC baseball games.
Come Saturday, I had room for one more game in my book. Cosmically, the Tar Heels had to win. And they did. Looking back at more scorebook, if you had asked me if this team would be here back in March, I would've laughed. And I'm not alone. Read this column about how head coach Mike Fox turned the season around.
Maybe next time, I'll tell you how I helped the basketball team win the 2017 National Championship.
