Could Sam Bachman be the most recent first round pick to jump straight to the MLB?

 On Sunday night, pitcher Sam Bachman will likely be the first ever Miami RedHawk to be taken in the first round of the Major League Baseball Draft. One of Bachman’s most exciting traits is his apparent MLB readiness. Draft insider Joe Doyle speculated that he could end up in an MLB bullpen later in 2021, saying “If there’s stuff that’ll play immediately out of a big league bullpen, it’s Bachman’s.” Major League teams always need bullpen help. Who better to provide it than a young player with strikeout stuff?

Synchronized skating team makes best of season without competition

Levine wanted a normal college experience. She wanted to go to class and hang out with her friends without the looming stress of skating. That was, until an injury caused by crashing into the boards at practice that made her realize how she couldn’t imagine her life without skating.  “When I broke my leg, suddenly what I loved the most was taken away from me, and it wasn’t until I was at that rock-bottom that I realized skating gave me so much more than I thought it did,” she said.

Student baseball managers program excellent in more ways than one

The managers, led for the most part by juniors Zorian Schiffman, Rory Tekulve and Kotila, is a group of student volunteers that help with nearly every aspect of the baseball team’s operation.  Schiffman believes Miami has the largest program of student managers in the country. “[We work on] things from game planning and video scouting, to player development, to some of the more in depth research projects,” Schiffman said.
