Good stuff for Nick Swisher, who donated $500,000 to the Ohio State baseball program and had the baseball field named in his honor. The dedication was yesterday.

“The word honor comes to mind,” Swisher said. “I never would have thought I would have been at Ohio State. When I came here, I experienced that passion, pride and tradition that Ohio State has. I think everyone on the team experiences that every single day. It’s been an amazing thing.”

You’ve probably noticed that Swisher’s a pretty passionate guy. He talks up Ohio State quite a bit in the clubhouse, and one can only imagine how excited he was to see that Nick Swisher Field sign for the first time.
