This Week in UNC Baseball with Mike Fox

North Carolina baseball coach Mike Fox: "Our players are a year older and veterans and we emphasized to hit the ball with a little more authority. You never know when you hit a ball if it is in the gap and it is not as easy a thing that you can control as people think. We need to hit with more power this year certainly and give us more opportunities to score runs." (Inside Carolina)

Looking into reasons why Los Angeles Angels signed Dustin Ackley

A good benchmark to measure his real abilities would be his 2015 season, although there wasn’t any substantial difference in batting — he hit .231/.284/.429 in 108 games. The good news: he’s stronger defensively. He is capable of any out fielding position and can play first and second base when needed. (Outside Pitch MLB)

Matt Harvey, Mets hoping for healthy, drama-free 2017 season

The missing rib, removed from the upper right side of his chest, was easily forgotten about by Matt Harvey. Not being able to feel his right hand, the one he uses to grip a baseball, well, that was alarming. As Harvey spoke Monday about the past seven months since the surgery to correct his thoracic outlet syndrome, the missing hand still haunted him. (Newsday)

Tar Heels Seeking Power at the Plate

After finishing near the bottom of the ACC in various batting statistics, Mike Fox is tweaking UNC’s approach at the plate. Power has not been UNC’s strength in recent years.

Today, the No. 12 Tar Heels open their season at home at 3 p.m. against Kentucky. (Daily Tar Heel)

Matt Harvey determined to regain dominant form

For three days following surgery to remove a rib from his torso, Matt Harvey could not feel his right hand.

Tar Heel baseball ready to start anew

UNC’s baseball team didn’t figure to be back in this position again. But the Tar Heels embark on another season coming off a spring without an NCAA Tournament bid. “It’s over with. Move on.

A Former Walk-On, UNC Centerfielder Brian Miller Embraces His Journey to the Top

High expectations loom for Triangle trio on the baseball diamond

Expectations are high again in Chapel Hill even though the Tar Heels have failed to earn an NCAA tournament bid the last two seasons. That means juniors such as ace righthander J.B. Bukauskas, a preseason first-team All-American, and speedy center fielder Brian Miller, a second-team choice, have not played in the NCAA tournament. (WRAL Sports Fan)
