Who are the greatest Tar Heels of all time? We've attempted to use analytics to help answer that question. The following criteria were used to guide the rankings: Only ACC-era players are included.

UNC baseball uses analytics to power defensive shifts

Major League Baseball teams have taken to shifting defenders more than ever thanks in part to analysis of where players hit the ball.

Mississippi State will be the next team asked to solve the shifts when it meets UNC at 7 p.m. Monday. (Commercial Dispatch)

Tar Heels catcher playing with heavy heart after friend's death, but finds solace on field

The news of his good friend’s death ripped through his soul Saturday morning, just a few hours before he was set play in the biggest game of his college career.

UNC faces walk-off happy Bulldogs in key CWS game

The Tar Heels and Bulldogs have gotten to this point in Omaha quite differently, but the winner tonight will put itself in a strong position to reach the championship series. UNC is 6-0 in tournament play and has averaged better than nine runs per game. With UNC's offense rolling, it may take some pressure off a pitching staff that put in quite a bit of work in the opener. (WRAL Sports Fan)

Chansky’s Notebook: All Hands On Deck

North Carolina’s committee was better than Oregon State’s. If there is one thing the Tar Heels have learned from so many trips to the College World Series, it’s that baseball is a team game on this level, perhaps more than any other. The opening win Saturday over Oregon State demonstrated that you have to almost win by committee to survive and advance in Omaha. (Chapelboro.com)

On the heels of upset victory, North Carolina confirms style of play is CWS-worthy

The word “upset” may not begin to describe North Carolina’s 8-6 victory over Oregon State in the opening game of the College World Series. OSU has six players who earned All-America honors. UNC has no All-Americans and four who were picked All-ACC. Oregon State starting pitcher Luke Heimlich had more victories (16) than UNC’s top three starters combined. (Omaha World-Herald)

Threat of big innings could decide UNC baseball's matchup against Mississippi State

Mississippi State has won their fair share of games on big innings.

(Daily Tar Heel)

Theo Pinson fits in NBA in Roy Williams' view

With the NBA evolving toward more of a position-less form and placing a heightened emphasis on players who possess shape-shifting abilities, the versatility of North Carolina’s Theo Pinson seems suited to fit somewhere in the league. That sentiment has been part of the pre-draft message Tar Heels coach Roy Williams said he’s conveying to certain NBA teams. (Burlington Times News)

Everything you need to know about Mississippi State's next opponent, the North Carolina Tar Heels

Mississippi State fans may not be through celebrating Saturday's 1-0, walk-off win over Washington, but the Bulldogs have turned their attention to Monday's matchup. And that's a good thing, because the North Carolina Tar Heels are no joke. They went .500 in their first 14 games, but they are 36-11 since then, and that includes a 22-8 mark in the ACC. (Clarion Ledger)

Dalatri's injury could have impact on UNC baseball's starting rotation going forward

UNC baseball coach Mike Fox had hoped to start Cooper Criswell on Monday, even if he had to pitch him for one inning on Saturday in an emergency situation. That emergency situation came up. Late in Saturday's game, UNC was running out of pitchers and Oregon State had the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh. So Fox inserted Criswell. (Charlotte Observer)

Cleveland Indians thinking long term with Andrew Miller's return from injury

When the Cleveland Indians get reliever Andrew Miller back from injury, they want to make sure he stays that way for the remainder of the season instead of having to send him back to the disabled list for a third time in 2018. Out of the lineup since May 25 because of a sore right knee, Miller has not been activated because the Indians want to make sure he will remain healthy. (WKYC)

Father's Day In Omaha

From 2006-13, the June pilgrimage from Chapel Hill to Omaha became almost commonplace for Scott Forbes and his family.
