That line of thinking, albeit premature in this instance, brings us to the spring and summer of 2015, to the University of Maryland, and to two high-profile players heading into their respective drafts: wide receiver Stefon Diggs and outfielder LaMonte Wade.
Junior right-hander Kevin Mooney (North Harford) recorded a five-out save Saturday night to break No. 25 Maryland's all-time saves record and highlight the Terps' weekend sweep of visiting Minnesota in their inaugural Big Ten Conference series.
Maryland pitcher Jake Stinnett became the highest-drafted Terps player since 2007 when the Chicago Cubs selected him with the 45th overall pick in the second round in baseball's first-year player draft Thursday.
Chris Davis drove in three runs on a pair of opposite-field singles against the shift as the Orioles plated 11 straight runs in an 11-4 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in front of an announced crowd of 16,283 at Rogers Centre.
As the regular season winds down, the Orioles insist they aren't sneaking glances at the out-of-town scoreboard in right field of Camden Yards to see how the division-leading New York Yankees are doing.
