college baseball: long beach state dirtbags @ unc

One. Oh, right, I have a blog. shep. and I went out to our first Heels baseball game of 2017 on Friday, because we’ve long been obsessed with the Long Beach State baseball team, one of the few teams in the NCAA who has a different official nickname / mascot than the rest of the…

Carolina swept Duke, outscoring them 21-3 over three games, and moves to…
