Robin Ventura named to top College All-Americans of the last 40 years:

Baseball America has recognized Oklahoma State alum Robin Ventura as on their 12 Most Decorated College All-Americans of the past 40 years. He makes the top of the list.

1. Robin Ventura, 3B, Oklahoma State

First team: 1986, 1987, 1988

1986 Freshman of the Year

1987 Player of the Year

Ventura gained national attention for his record 58-game hitting streak during his 1987 POY season, then cemented his reputation with a 16-year big league career in which he won six Gold Gloves and swatted 294 home runs. He still ranks seventh in Division I history with 302 RBIs and inside the top 20 with a .428 batting average and .792 slugging percentage. {Baseball America}

Baseball America releases preseason Round of 64:

Baseball season is right around of the corner and on website has Oklahoma State hosting a regional. They’re predicted to be 16 seed by Baseball America.

The American, Big 12, Big Ten and Pac-12 all look to be strong as well, which is particularly bad news for mid-major teams around the country. Only three teams outside those six conferences received at-large bids a year ago and a similar scenario could well play out this spring. This projection only includes one at-large team from outside the six major conferences and only two more among the next eight teams out. That fits with larger trends around college sports, as power, money and postseason bids are increasingly being concentrated in the biggest conferences. {Baseball America}
