FAYETTEVILLE -Â Trent Daniel repeatedlyÂ represented Bryant andÂ never opposed Bryant.Â
Until perhapsÂ FridayÂ night in Manhattan, Kan.Â For Daniel would be pitching againstÂ Bryant should the Arkansas Razorbacks summon their senior southpawÂ native son of Bryant, Ark., to relieve vs.Â Bryant University in theÂ first round of the four-team, double-eliminationÂ ManhattanÂ Baseball Regional.
â€śIâ€™ve gotten a couple of jokes from my teammates,â€ť Daniel said. â€ś Itâ€™s kind of funny being from Bryant and playing a team called Bryant, I guess.â€ť
What have they said?

I was looking at old-school baseball cards one day online and as the St. Louis Cardinals are saved in my searches, I came across some cards of a former Cardinal I had never heard about. And being a huge Cardinal and history fan (I used to be a history major), I was a little disappointed in myself that I didn't know who Dick Hughes was and how huge he was for the Cardinals 1967 world series team, which St. Louis won over the Boston Red Sox in seven games. That and the fact Hughes was born in Stephens, Ark.
November 21, 2012. I remember it like yesterday. I arrived at work earlier than normal to get the paper finished due to the Thanksgiving holiday. I came in, checked my email, greeted everyone that arrived after me and then the boss walked out.
"There was a bad car wreck last night on Spring Hill," he said. Curious like always I said "what happened?" "I'm not really sure," he said, "but a Benton teenager was killed."
My heart sank.
