And now baseball is over. In another week, track & field will also be done. All this means that football is just around the corner.
- The Oregon baseball season is over as the Ducks were routed 11-4 last night in the final game of the Eugene Regional. The Ducks had been playing their fifth game in four days after winning twice on Sunday to force the decisive game last night.
- With the end of the season, speculation immediately begins on which players might leave early. Chris Hansen suggests that both Ryon Healy and Jimmie Sherfy are expected to be drafted this week as both were ranked in Baseball America's top 100 draft prospects recently. Paul Buker has some quotes from Healy and Coach Horton about the first baseman's possible early departure.
- The Pac-12 announced on Monday that it would further limit the amount of contact allowed during football practices. This is part of the conference's new "Student-Athlete Health and Well-Being Initiative." The new limitations are not expected to affect Oregon as they had already reduced the number of full-contact days under Chip Kelly.
- In an attempt to help the Oregon women win a national title, English Gardner will be taking on a heavy workload at Hayward Field, competing in the 100m, 200m, 4x100 and 4x400 relays. Gardner will become just the second UO women to attempt the "quad."
- Jessica Moore and Alexa Peterson were both invited to the U.S. softball trials next week in Oklahoma City. In all, nine Pac-12 players are among the 32 invitees. The 17 players that make up the final roster will compete in several tournaments this summer, including the World Cup of Softball.
