Extra wait pays off for Giants' Draft pick Benton Moss

Friday was supposed to be the day Benton Moss would be selected in the 2014 First-Year Player Draft.

But by the time Friday ended, 315 players not named Benton Moss had been taken. His phone wouldn't ring until Saturday morning. (MLB.com)

Diamond Heels Will Try To Polish Up Rough Edges For 2015 Run

The North Carolina baseball team’s 2014 season is in the books.

Andrew Carignan: ‘I’ve got a new arm. Let’s see how it goes’
