Lake Olmstead Stadium has filled to near capacity several times already this season and as the Augusta GreenJackets approach the weekend portion of their longest homestand, more big crowds are expected.

As soon as Nolan Belcher entered Game 1 of the College World Series Sunday night for the South Carolina Gamecocks, I knew what was coming. I had seen the left-handed ace win three high school state championships (one at Augusta Christian and two at Greenbrier) with a fastball in the 90s and one of the best curveballs I've ever seen.

 

But that's not what ESPN commentators Mike Patrick and Kyle Peterson pointed out when Belcher trotted to the mound in the eighth inning with Arizona leading 5-1 and threatening again.
