North Carolina Baseball's Secret Weapon Is This Dog

UNC baseball went 47-12 and earned the second overall seed in the NCAA tournament. They’ll get to host tournament games until they are eliminated or make the College World Series. One may assume that this is because they are stocked with skilled hitters and pitchers, and while they are indisputably talented, they also have something no other team has: Remington. (Deadspin)

Colin Moran Showing Improvement in Triple-A

Colin Moran has had an interesting trip through the minor leagues. From a potentially rumored #1 overall pick, to being traded to another organization only a year later, he has seen his fair share of ups and downs. This season, he seems to be making big improvements that are paying off. Moran attended UNC where he hit .345 with 13 HR, and 91 RBI in 71 games in 2013. (Crawfish Boxes)

J.B. Bukauskas Named Golden Spikes Semifinalist

USA Baseball unveiled the 25 semifinalists for the 40th USA Baseball Golden Spikes Award on Wednesday, and North Carolina junior right-hander J.B. Bukauskas is among those included.

Chapel Hill Regional Breakdown

Most Exciting Player: Brian Miller, OF, North Carolina. Dynamic speedster who can make highlight-reel catches in center field and push the action on the basepaths, giving him a real shot to be drafted toward the end of the first round. Best Pitcher: J.B. Bukauskas, RHP, UNC. A potential top-10 overall pick with an electric fastball and a devastating slider. (D1 Baseball)

J.B. Bukauskas Finalist For CBF Pitcher Of The Year Award

Each of the five finalists for the Pitcher of the Year Award certainly qualify as an ace. The five finalists are UNC junior J.B. Bukauskas, Oregon State junior Luke Heimlich, St. John's freshman Sean Mooney, Loyola-Marymount junior Cory Abbott and Texas Tech sophomore Steven Gingery. Bukauskas was 9-0 with a 2.02 ERA, and he struck out 111 batters in 89 innings. (GoHeels.com)

Logan Warmoth Named Wallace Award Finalist

Brooks Wallace was known as a slick-fielding shortstop for Texas Tech in the 1980s, and this year's group of finalists for the Brooks Wallace Award certainly live up to that billing. And they can hit, too. Logan Warmoth led the way for North Carolina, hitting .336 on the year with nine home runs and 45 RBIs and had just seven errors for a .969 fielding percentage. (GoHeels.com)

Baseball America’s latest mock draft projects three Tar Heels in the first round

Baseball America projects Tar Heel ace J.B. Bukauskas to hear his name called very early on draft night. Shortstop Logan Warmoth put together an extraordinary performance in the ACC Tournament.

How do state teams stack up in their respective NCAA baseball regionals?

As the No. 2 national seed playing on its home field, the North Carolina baseball team has some distinct advantages heading into its four-team NCAA tournament regional pod this weekend. That doesn’t mean the Tar Heels have a clear path into their first Super Regional since 2013. Having won 16 of its last 19 games, UNC faces some potential landmines. (North State Journal)

Service dog boosts North Carolina college baseball team

The North Carolina baseball team has gotten a significant emotional boost from a four-legged teammate this season.

Remington — or “Remi” — isn’t exactly playing an Air Bud role, but he’s as close to a team member as you’ll find in any dugout. (USA Today)

Turner's Take: Their Time

Believe it or not, it's been 11 years since "Chad Flack just sent Carolina to Omaha." Ten years since a freshman class that included Dustin Ackley, Kyle Seager and Alex White sent them back. Eight years since the White-Warren-Harvey weekend rotation. Four years since Brian Holberton and the Tar Heels slid around Brett Austin and NC State in Omaha. (GoHeels.com)

UNC baseball back again in role of favorite entering NCAA tournament

UNC will host No. 4 seed Davidson in the Chapel Hill region, at 6 p.m. Friday. Though UNC expected a high seed, seeing it become reality brought new emotions.
