Lineup Card

 

Lineup Card is a feature highlighting notes from around college baseball.

 

June 1-6, 2010

 

Louisville head coach Dan McDonnell (left) has been suspended for three games for his confrontation with an umpire in the Cardinals’ elimination game at the Big East Tournament on May 29. He will miss the first three games of the Louisville Regional. Assistants Chris Lemonis and Roger Williams will serve as co-head coaches during McDonnell’s suspension.

 

Alabama junior David Kindred will miss the Atlanta Regional after being diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Kindred did not play in the final two games of the SEC Tournament after experiencing shortness of breath and chest pains. The disease was caught in the early stages and the probability of a full and complete recovery is very high. Kindred did accompany the team to Atlanta. Treatment will begin next week and could take four to six months. Kindred plans to attend Alabama this fall and join the team for fall workouts. He is on pace to graduate in December. Kindred plans to enroll in graduate school and play for the Crimson Tide in 2011 for his senior season. He batted .314 this season with three home runs and 18 RBI in 34 games.

 

ESPNU will televise all games from the Coral Gables and Fullerton Regionals. We have not heard of regional coverage yet for the other 14 regionals. We will add them here when we hear.

 

There are eight Division I schools this year which will have participated in the NCAA Baseball Tournament, the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and a football bowl game: California, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Minnesota, Texas and Texas A&M. Only four schools have accomplished this each of the past two years: Clemson, Florida State, Minnesota and Texas.

 

The 30 semifinalists for the Golden Spikes Award have been announced. The list will be trimmed to five finalists on June 8 and the award will be announced on July 13 at MLB’s All-Star FanFest in Anaheim, Calif.
