Yesterday was Opening Day in Division I college baseball. Programs took their first steps on the Road to Omaha. The College World Series is one game closer.
Here’s a few highlights from Opening Day, and some of the names you should be familiarizing yourself with in June’s MLB Draft.
Alec Bohm’s bomb:

It cleared both walls in center. (400 ft in center). My guess is that it went 450 ish feet. pic.twitter.com/CMNNqpTcZ0
LSU’s Bryce Jordan clears The Box:
