Red Sox Journal: Former Tar Heels Ackley, Bard square off in majors
Sunday, July 24, 2011
Seattle phenom Dustin Ackley had never faced Daniel Bard before his eighth-inning single on a 98-mph fastball on Saturday night. But Ackley was more than familiar with that fastball. "Anytime you see guys in college throwing 100 mph, that's a pretty big deal," Ackley said. "I remember watching (Bard) and watching the success he had, and it was pretty fun to watch."
