Dustin Ackley's newborn son couldn't wait for Spring Training

For Dustin Ackley, no matter what stresses come his way this baseball season, nothing will likely match his cross-country journey from Michigan to Arizona that was interrupted midway by the unexpected arrival of his first child. After setting off by RV from Lapeer, Mich., for their annual trek west with their two dogs in tow, things got a little crazy for the Ackleys. (MLB.com)

This Week with Mike Fox

Inside Carolina caught up with North Carolina head baseball coach Mike Fox after the Diamond Heels returned from a series loss to UCLA in Orlando.

Series Recap: UCLA

The #17 Heels took on #11 UCLA in Orlando and lost the series 2-1. The Heels lost 8-5 on Friday, won 9-6 on Saturday and then got blown out 12-4 on Sunday. Carolina and UCLA were originally supposed to play their three-game series in Chapel Hill but the winter storm forced the two teams to move their games to Orlando, specifically to UCF's campus. (Tar Heel Blog)

Impressions From UNC-UCLA

North Carolina should feel good about the state of its offense, despite the series loss. The Tar Heels had 10 hits Friday, 12 more Saturday, and 11 on Sunday, and they drew 12 walks over the final two games. And again, that offensive output came against a marquee pitching staff. I thought the Tar Heels, like the Bruins, got quality at-bats up and down their lineup. (D1 Baseball)

Alex White hopes a return to normalcy pays off in 2015

Like other Astros pitchers, this camp should be markedly different for Alex White if his health holds up. He said he had a restful offseason before starting his normal winter routine, getting going in December, and that such a return to normalcy was itself notable. A year ago in spring training, White’s velocity was a subject. (Houston Chronicle)

UNC Baseball Will Not Play At Home This Weekend

Ice and snow across the state Monday coupled with expected extreme temperatures and additional precipitation will prevent the North Carolina baseball team from hosting UCLA at Boshamer Stadium this weekend. Potential alternatives for the weekend are being discussed, and any decisions will be announced on GoHeels.com and the @DiamondHeels Twitter feed. (GoHeels.com)

Sophomores show up in baseball season opener

It all starts with the sophomores. That’s what North Carolina baseball coach Mike Fox believes. And they undoubtedly backed up his assertion in his team’s first series of the 2015 season this weekend. (Daily Tar Heel)

This Week With Mike Fox

Inside Carolina caught up with head coach Mike Fox of the No. 6-ranked Diamond Heels after their season opening sweep of Seton Hall at Boshamer Stadium.

Baseball Series Recap: Seton Hall

Carolina started the baseball season 3-0 with a sweep of Seton Hall this past weekend. Carolina showed remarkable offensive balance, averaging more than 8.5 runs per game. Perhaps more impressive, the Heels' hitter showed remarkable patience at the plate, drawing 13 walks during the series. Working pitchers this way will be critical to success in a very deep ACC this season. (Tar Heel Blog)
