From The Dugout: Ducks Enjoy Trip To Bend

Oct. 28, 2010

Oregon’s fall was highlighted by its second annual trip to Bend. Please check out the video below. A special thanks to senior Mitch Karraker for taking the time to direct this ensemble. Nearly 300 fans watched the scrimmage in Bend on Oct. 16, while 70 youngsters participated in the clinic afterward.

It’s been nearly five months since UO’s season came to a close with a second place finish at the Norwich Regional, but that hasn’t stopped the Ducks from garnering national attention.

Most recently, Cape Cod All-Star and Oregon shortstop KC Serna was chosen by The College Baseball Blog as one of the top 100 players in the country. Read the article by clicking HERE.
