This past weekend I was in Austin, Texas, for a mid-quarter jaunt. I picked Austin as my vacation destination on the sole basis of its phenomenal food scene: one of my friends told me there were lots of tacos to be had. Incidentally, that same friend later decided not to join us. We would no longer be on talking terms, if not for how truly explosive our dining experiences were.
During its opening series against Rice, the Stanford Cardinal became the only college baseball club in the country to start three freshman pitchers to open the season. After last night’s game, make that four.
