Pitcher takes out his frustration on base runner

Berry College Vikings pitcher Levi Austin just doesn’t like to lose, we suppose. In the bottom of the 5th inning against Hendrix College, Austin couldn’t hold back his frustrations anymore and took out the base runner headed for home. After a wild pitch, Austin stormed the third base line and gave his best shot, sending the Hendrix player flying. Of course, he was called safe...

College Pitcher Tackles Baserunner Trying To Steal Home

Division III College Baseball just took “attacking the base path” to a whole new level.  On the mound is Berry College’s Levi Austin, who at the :35 mark threw a pitch that was down and inside on a batter from Hendrix College of Conway.  The ball bounced away from the catcher which gave Hendrix’s Colin Radack the opportunity to take off from 3rd base and try to score. As...

Division III Pitcher Levels Baserunner With Football Tackle at Home Plate (Video)

Someone forgot to tell Berry (Ga.) College right-hander Levi Austin that football season is over. After tossing a wild pitch on Saturday, the Division III pitcher raced Hendrix College’s Collin Radack to the plate. But instead of waiting for the relay from his catcher, Austin decided to take matters into his own hands, throwing his shoulder into the baserunner and nearly igniting...

Pitcher nails runner trying to score

I can honestly say this is first Division III baseball video to ever make it on the blog, and I can’t make any promises that it will be the last. It’s the offseason, and things get weird. Anyway, here we have Berry College vs. Hendrix College, and a wild pitch was just thrown by Hendrix. [...]

N.C. State Baseball’s Brett Williams’ Diving Grab Earns Catch of the Year Nomination (Video)

Brett Williams looks pretty mobile for a guy who recently came off the shelf from a torn ACL. The N.C. State centerfielder went viral this week after he robbed a New Mexico State batsman in what many are calling the “catch of the year” — albeit only February. He’s not just dazzling with the leather, either, as he’s reached base 15 of his last 18 at-bats, dating back to...

Baseball Is Back! First College Bench-Clearing Brawl Of The Season

The bitter rivalry between UC Riverside and Sacramento State has struck again as the two teams had a fairly entertaining bench-clearing brawl on Friday. That first sentence was a lie as we have no idea if it is a bitter rivalry or not. Things escalated pretty quickly once Riverside’s Eddie Young felt like he was tagged a bit too hard by second baseman Andrew Ayers of Sacramento...

Vicious punch leads to bench-clearing brawl

Baseball has its first bench-clearing brawl under its belt.  Friday afternoon, UC Riverside and Sacramento State went toe-to-toe.  It started after Riverside baserunner Eddie Young was tagged out during a rundown between second and third.  After Young was tagged by Sac State second baseman Andrew Ayers, he gave an unnecessary Ayers’ wrist.  That led to a shove from Ayers and...

A college baseball game in North Carolina between host Gardner-Webb and Dayton was stopped in the top of the sixth inning Saturday in a scoreless tie due to a snowstorm.

Guy trolls the field crew with a beach ball on a string at the CWS

It’s game 2 of the series between the South Carolina Gamecocks and Arizona Wildcats and the entire crowd thought it would be a good idea to blow up a ton of beach balls. They inflated the beach balls threw half of them on the field. The umpires had to stop the game and get the ground crew to clean up all the beach balls. It took awhile but they finally cleared them all over the...

We all heard from our television of the College World Series that there was a streaker that ran onto the field but the cameras never panned to her. Of course, we don’t know for sure if she actually “streaked” but here is a picture of her trying to hug the Arizona Wildcat third base coach. Last night, the Arizona Wildcats defeated the South Carolina Gamecocks in the College...

Want to see the number one play on Sportscenter tomorrow before it’s shown? Here it is.

It looked like the Florida Gators and Kevin Sullivan had a chance to get back in the ballgame after a run by the Gamecocks but this guy stopped any hope of...
