Former Timberwolf heading to College World Series
By: Staff Report
Former Woodcreek Little League and Woodcreek High star Danny Black is deeply involved in a whole new kind of baseball tournament these days. The second baseman is now a junior starter at the University of Oklahoma, where his Sooners went on the road and stunned Virginia to earn a spot in the College Baseball World Series. Black played at Woodcreek before taking his game to Feather River Junior College for two years. This is his first campaign in Norman. The junior was also selected by the Florida Marlins in the 14th round of the recent Major League Baseball draft. Oklahoma opens play in Omaha at 11 a.m. Sunday against South Carolina. The game can be seen on ESPN.
