Eagle Links: 5/7

The biggest news of the day comes from the zoning board in Brighton. BC's plans for expansion were finally approved after heavy complaining (more like whining). This should help the baseball and softball teams as they are scheduled to get bigger and better facilities.

No ACC baseball at Fenway. Commissioner Swafford says its for economic reasons. Its a good think he doesn't give a crap about the economic situation us here in Boston are feeling as well. Looks like we will be labeled a "non-traveller" indefinitely. It would be nice to actually feel like we are wanted in the ACC, with the amount our teams have done for the conference.

Norm Reid (I have never heard of him before), the man who overseas the bubble here at BC doesn't seem to worried about ours after the Dallas Cowboy's one collapsed. According to ESPN, "[Reid] doesn't think BC will make any drastic changes when raising the facility again in the winter"

Heather Dinich of ESPN, gives us her spring wrap-up for the Eagles. Also, a little on the shocking side, James McCluskey has a torn achillies. Which is something I did not know, as you could tell from my position previews. has BC baseball as a 3 seed in the Gainsville regional. Along with Florida, Bethune-Cookman (who we have beat) and Coastal Carolina. I for one am just hoping BC makes the baseball NCAAs.
