Hold the Tigers?

There's a developing story in Charlottesville, in the Round of 64 in the NCAA Baseball tournament, where Princeton, behind top prospect Ross Ohlendorf, beat the Cavaliers this morning 4-2. The Tigers play Vanderbilt tonight. You can read about the regional on ESPN.com, which made the tragic error already in its blurb about Princeton of posting Penn's catching red-and-blue logo next to the Princeton entry.

As for Tiger baseball, former Major League catcher Scott Bradley (who played for the Mariners and Yankees and once caught a no-hitter twirled by the Big Unit), has built quite a juggernaut in central New Jersey. Former Tiger hoop star and mound stalwart Chris Young was a third-round draft choice (signing for over $1 million) three years ago, and last year righthander Thomas Pauly was a second-round pick. This year football WR and outfielder B.J. Syzmanski is expected to be one of the top 10 picks in the Major League draft this Monday (apparently in a game against ODU this spring, Syzmanski crushed a 90 plus m.p.h. fastball off an ODU hurler who also is expected to be a top pick and hit it 450 feet for a home run; that hit put Syzmanski on the scouts' radar charts, as before then he wasn't listed as a top-100 prospect before then). Other key players for the Tigers are catcher Tim Lahey, a power hitter who is expected to be drafted, and dh/of Will Venable, a first-team all-Ivy player -- in basketball.

Watch this team. They have the arms to do some damage against big-name schools.
