Home runs come to college ball, despite BBCOR
Interesting article on the resurgence of home runs in college baseball.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/baseballs-h...ajor_pos27

The article also mentions how Tennessee Tech's hitting helped get Matt Bragga to Rice.

Can you post a shareable link (assuming you have a subscription).

You can often just paste the article title into your search engine and get the entire article.

Here are the paragraphs referencing Coach Bragga.

"Take Tennessee Tech, a medium-size school in the Ohio Valley Conference that won a nation-best 53 games this season and came within a victory of the College World Series.

It smashed 135 home runs in 2018, with seven batters hitting at least 10. It was an incredible display of power that recently earned head coach Matt Bragga a promotion to Rice. In one game alone, Bragga’s club belted 11 home runs.

“That game was nuts,” said outfielder Kevin Strohschein, who hit 18 home runs this year. He added: “The idea has been that with home runs, you’ll get drafted and get money.”

Tennessee Tech coaches don’t preach the principles that have fed the homer explosion: launch angle, lift or a trajectory-over-contact mentality. They just want players to hit the ball hard. And yet the Golden Eagles embody how the game’s old-school style is being replaced by the pursuit to hit home runs."

I pasted the title into the Web Search feature of Microsoft News home page and got the entire article. First result was a bing.com/news link.

For grins, I tired this with Google as well. Got the entire article.
If someone patched the backdoor, it's still leaking.

Thanks Tomball. Used Edge/Bing and it came up. Looks like the closed the Google search leak and not the Bing search leak. The Google/Chrome searches result in a paywall. Lolz.

Damnit.... now Im curious....

Chrome/Bing is paywalled.

Edge/Google is not.

So seems paywalled for Chrome browser, not Edge.

(1) I was being lazy and browsing on my phone, (2) as a former wsj subscriber, I know they used to provide a way to share links for non- subscribers that would time out after 30 days.
