Virginia college baseball triumphs

Congratuations to the University of Virginia Cavaliers baseball team for winning the ACC championship for the second time ever. (The first time was in 1996.) On Sunday they beat Florida State 6-3 in in Durham (as in Bulls), North Carolina, thanks to a two-run base hit by John Hicks in the top of the ninth inning. Virginia went 43-12-1 for the 2009 season, and has qualified for the NCAA championshi. See

The "Wahoos" now head to Irvine, California for the regional championships, and if they are successful may just make it to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska beginning June 13. Historic Rosenblatt Stadium is slated for destruction in another couple years, unfortunately.

One of these days I may just do a diagram for Davenport Field, the home field of the UVa baseball team. During graduate school in the 1990s I worked next door to it at the UVa Miller Center. Back then it was a very meager facility, just aluminum bleachers and a tacky Astroturf infield, but just after I left in 2002, the entire grandstand was replaced with a beautiful new brick roofed structure.

This is the old Cavalier logo that was in use while I was a gradudate student. Wa-hoo-wa!

blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
