Cody Roberts Is More Than Just An Arm

North Carolina catcher Cody Roberts knew he probably shouldn't be there Friday, sitting at a podium inside the Boshamer Stadium player's lounge.

Mike Fox Post-Game 1 Stetson Press Conference Quotes

Mike Fox: “We’re certainly happy to win Game 1. We needed everybody, every pitch get it done. A few swings of the bat and our pitching was really good. The guys out of the bullpen were really good.
