Paul Smyth Named to National Team of the Week

+

Kansas senior relief pitcher Paul Smyth has been named to the College Baseball Foundation’s National All-Star Lineup for the week of March 24. Smyth becomes the second Kansas pitcher – joining teammate Shaeffer Hall – to be named to the team this season. Smyth, a senior from Atascadero, Calif., collected three saves in KU’s sweep of No. 1 Texas – the first over a top-ranked team by the Jayhawks. He pitched the ninth inning in all three games and allowed no runs on two hits and did not walk anybody. He put the final exclamation point on the series sweep by striking out pinch hitter Tim Maitland Sunday to end the game. In seven home appearances this season, Smyth has not allowed a run or a walk. He is tied for the Big 12 lead with six saves this year. Each week the College Baseball Foundation and Diamond Sports put together a team of 10-12 baseball players and coaches who enjoyed standout performances over the previous week. Considering how much Paul struggled during the first month of the season this honor must mean the world to him. Congratulations to Paul.

Jayhawks Tour Kansas City Royals' Camp in Surprise, Ariz.

KU is playing a three game series vs. #7 Arizona State in Suprise, AZ. ASU won Friday 9-4. Before game two KU visited with the Royals. They must have been inspired because they pulled off a 3-2 upset that night. I love this quote: "It was a great experience," senior relief pitcher Paul Smyth said of the morning with the Royals. "Being able to watch the big team work out was something not many people get to do. Every one there, from the players to the staff, treated us first class." "My favorite parts were talking with George Brett, and watching (Royals’ catcher) John Buck take BP in our pinwheel hat while he bet dinner with (former ASU standout) Willie Bloomquist on our game last night. Hope dinner was good." Bloomy bets against my beloved Jayhawks. One more mark against him. 1. Sucks at baseball. 2. Takes a roster spot away from Shealy. 3. Hates on KU. It might be a while before I learn to love this new Royal.
