Dustin Ackley set to play pivotal role for Yankees in 2016

With starter Mark Teixeira down due to various injuries the past few years, there's a solid chance Dustin Ackley will see significant playing time at first base in 2016 as well as in the outfield. Ackley played 27.0 innings there last year for the Yankees and spent three years playing nearly every game in college at first. It's a spot, unlike second, where he doesn't have to get reacclimated.

Zac Gallen aims to make his mark

Zac Gallen was one of two players — along with junior Adam Pate — that coach Mike Fox named a team captain for this season. Fox has never had captains in 17 seasons as UNC’s coach, but he knew the team needed a change. Zac was a clear choice. “He doesn’t like teammates who don’t carry their weight, and he’ll let them know it,” Fox said. (Daily Tar Heel)

Tar Heels look to build baseball leadership, count on newcomers

UNC is banking on leadership and a crop of newcomers to put its baseball team back in a good place.

2016 UNC Baseball Season Preview

Carolina lost a lot of offensive talent, but Tyler Ramirez, UNC's best player from a year ago, returns for his junior and probably final, season.

Matt Harvey arrived early to Mets spring training Monday in style — driving a pulsating Maserati GranTurismo. The big right-hander knows style and pitching. And he knows money.

Q&A with Mike Fox

You’ve been coaching for more than 30 years. What aspects of coaching keep you fresh and engaged? The kids. Being around 18- to 22-yearolds every day keeps you on your toes! This generation is a challenge, but a fun one. You have to learn how to connect with them, get in their world, earn their respect and, most importantly, show them you care. (Winston-Salem Journal)

UNC's Run Production Critical for Diamond Heels in '16

UNC’s 13-year streak as a NCAA Tournament staple came to an end last May due in large part to its inability to manufacture runs at critical times. Playing in June has become commonplace around Boshamer Stadium. That postseason absence has served as motivation for a young and talented team looking to return to Omaha for the first time since 2013. (Inside Carolina)
