Alex White hopes a return to normalcy pays off in 2015

A year ago in spring training, White’s velocity was a subject. (Houston Chronicle)

A look at the best college baseball teams in the nation

5. North Carolina: Coach Mike Fox must be chomping at the bit to get 2015 started. Pitchers Trent Thornton (7–4, 2.73), Benton Moss (4–2, 3.62) and Zac Gallen (5–4, 4.64) combined for 46 starts a year ago. Not only that, but most of the bullpen returns as well.

2015 UNC Baseball Season Preview

Carolina enters this season with a veteran team poised to potentially make a run all the way to the College World Series. While a national title or even a trip to Omaha would be both optimistic and above expectations, a trip to the Super Regionals is realistic a the goal. The strength of this team is its pitching staff and the goal for the Heels should be to win a lot of 3-1 and 4-3 type games this year. (Tar Heel Blog)
