Future Yankee Jeremy Bleich will be on the mound for Stanford tomorrow in the College World Series.
The left-hander is scheduled to start for Stanford against Georgia on ESPN2 at 2 p.m. (EDT). It’s an elimination game for Stanford. Bleich has a plus curveball and a better fastball than initial scouting reports on him indicated. The Yankees took him with the 44th overall pick.
So set your Tivo and in a year or two you can impress your friends by saying you saw him pitch in college.
No big deal you say? Joba Chamberlain was the 41st overall pick in 2006. Be a good fan, follow the kids.
UPDATE: Bad weather in Omaha has pushed everything back in the CWS. The Stanford-Georgia game will now he on Saturday. I would imagine Bleich will still pitch. Check ESPN.com for the television schedule.
