The end of an era: Augie Garrido steps down

I know, I’m a few days late on the Augie Garrido decision. While most college baseball fanatics were watching the selection show on Monday — and then inevitably complaining about which bracket they wound up in — I was covering the DIII Baseball Championships. It was pretty fun baseball, considering the basic lack of pitching and the ensuing superb defensive plays and tremendously big bats. Hey, I could have been stuck watching the Braves, right?

Had it not rained for seemingly five hours every day of the tournament, it would have been even better. Still it was good baseball. Check out my live blog for NCAA.com to get see some of the sites and sounds.

Anyway, what’s really important is that the NCAA, not just college baseball, saw one of its legends hang it up this weekend. And I feel like it came without a lot of well-deserved fanfare.

Red more on Augie Garrido.
