Baseball advances record to 14-5 after Florida trip

The Hopkins baseball team travelled down to Fort Myers, Fla. over spring break to compete in the Gene Cusic Collegiate Classic.

What comes next with Mike Trout’s mega-deal

Baseball’s best player finally got his payday. This past week, it was announced that centerfielder Mike Trout and the Los Angeles Angels have agreed to a contract extension. The terms? A record breaking $430 million over 12 years, the largest contract in the history of American professional sports. The announcement comes on the heels of Bryce Harper’s own record-breaking contract, overtaking his deal by $100 million. The massive deal puts Trout in his own echelon, daunting the contracts of Harper, San Diego Padres signee Manny Machado and Colorado Rockies third baseman Nolan Arenado.

NCAA Sweet Sixteen will not fail to excite

In the Round of 32 in this year’s National College Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Basketball Tournament, there was only one upset, and that was No. 5 Auburn University steamrolling No. 4 University of Kansas, so it was not even that surprising of a victory. While this means we may not have a Cinderella team coming from outside the Power Five conferences, it also means we will have some highly anticipated matchups in the Sweet Sixteen.
