I am in heaven. I know I am part of a minority, but I love college baseball the way most folks love NCAA basketball. Forget the Final Four, the Road to Omaha is what gets my adrenaline pumping. And ESPN started the journey for viewers like me with an outstanding tournament selection show Monday at noon and a "Road to Omaha" production at 6 p.m. Both aired on ESPNU, the collegiate sports channel that my TV always seems to be set to when I turn it on during baseball season. ESPN has long done right by college baseball while much of the rest of the media world ignored it. But this year, ESPN is upping the ante in promising to cover every game from here on out among the 64 contenders for the national championship that will be decided at the College World Series in Omaha next month.

I am a college baseball junkie, and ESPN has given me all the coverage I can handle and then some the last three weeks. The incredible run by the University Maryland, my alma mater, has been icing on the cake and a cherry on top of that. But, honestly, I could watch the Anteaters from the University of California - Irvine beat the Oklahoma State Cowboys any night of the week. And I didn't miss one Texas Tech game streamed or on-air. I'll see them both in the College World Series from Omaha next weekend.

Maryland baseball coach John Szefc paused and looked forward, trying to articulate just how special it was to be part of the Terps ' first NCAA tournament team in 43 years. Szefc was just 4 years old when Maryland lost its first two games in Gastonia, N.C., in the 1971 national tourney. "It's kind of hard for me to wrap my mind around that," Szefc said. Since then, the program has endured 27 losing seasons in 43 years, failing to compete with perennial Atlantic Coast Conference powerhouses such as North Carolina State, Georgia Tech, Virginia and Florida State.

COLLEGE PARK -- Have waiters ever forgotten your drink order? Do the kids acknowledge your existence only when they're demanding more cash? Nearly everyone in life can relate to being overlooked and unappreciated, but it's unlikely any group of athletes experience those kinds of feelings more regularly than college baseball players in Maryland. Despite a legacy that extends from Babe Ruth to Cal Ripken, lacrosse is the official state sport. That seal of approval, courtesy of the Maryland legislature in 2004, reflects lacrosse's standing in certain ZIP codes and the weight it carries on campus, where defensive midfielders get more recognition than guys who could be pitching for pay in the minors this summer.

Orioles third baseman Manny Machado confirmed on Thursday that he is engaged to be married to girlfriend Yainee Alonso, but he did not say whether a date has been set for the wedding. Alonso is the sister of one of Machado's closest friends, San Diego Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso, who played college baseball at the University of Miami. Machado said he and Yainee were brought together by the baseball connection with her brother, but it's also the result of the close-knit nature of the sports community in Miami.

George Horton ran a college baseball powerhouse at Cal State-Fullerton, the kind of program that had no place for someone like Kurt Suzuki. Horton had never seen or heard of Suzuki before a scout pal mentioned the high schooler in Hawaii. "We didn't know a whole heck of a lot about him," Horton said. "We heard from our network of friends that this little catcher from Maui wanted to come and walk on at Fullerton. " On an island with 160,000 permanent residents, Suzuki played against five or six high schools.

Along with the bettors who had backed her down to odds of 1-5, the Malibu Moon filly was the popular winner of the $125,000 Maryland Racing Media Handicap. Jeremy Rose placed Moon Philly behind the pacesetter Touch the Birds at the start of the 11/8-mile test and stayed outside of that one until the far turn.

Mussina's not the problem I'm sure I'm not the only reader who was astonished and appalled by John Zaruba's unwarranted attack on Orioles pitcher Mike Mussina in The Sun on April 9. Musina is surely one of the top five starting pitchers in the game. He has been effusive in expressing his appreciation of Baltimore fans and has made it clear that he wants to play here. To label him a "greedy prima donna" is grossly unfair and monumentally ignorant. If nothing else, Mussina's presence on the roster ensures that, at least every fifth day, the Orioles will be worth watching and will have a chance to win. Don Brizendine, Baltimore Blast winners on, off field I constantly hear that Baltimore needs a winning team.
