Random Buckeye Baseball Notes

Just a quick rundown of things that are related to Ohio State baseball. I've tweeted these things, but for those not hit to twitter, a few newsworthy notes.

Series moved to Target Field.
With the Metrodome down and unplayable, the season-ending series versus the Gophers has been moved to the home of the Minnesota Twins, Target Field.

Ohio State gained a commitment for 2011
Outfielder Pat Porter a soon to be 2011 graduate of Kenston has committed to Coach Greg Beals and the Ohio State program. He appears to be the first post-early signing period snag for Beals.

Just a reminder Ohio State has two class of 2012 commit, the first in two-way player Jacob Bosiokovic from Delware Hayes, who appears to be an OF at the collegiate level. Right-handed pitcher Logan Bowles of Canton South is the other high school junior who has a verbal commitment to Ohio State.

Six Buckeyes in pro spring training camps
Pirates outfielder Eric Fryer (05-07) and Astros outfielder JB Shuck (06-08) have received their first invites to big league spring training camp. Those two join Orioles outfielder Matt Angle (05-07), Padres southpaw Cory Luebke (05-07), and Yankee Nick Swisher (00-02) as Buckeyes returning to Major League spring training sites. Outfielder Doug Deeds (99-02) received a non-roster invite from the Texas Rangers.
