North Carolina head coach Mike Fox didn’t want to have to share the news with his players — especially not today — just hours before the first game of the College World Series. But Fox had no choice. He gathered the Tar Heels on Saturday morning and told them that one of their former pitchers, lefthander Zach Attianese, and his father died in a car accident Friday. (Baseball America)
