Longtime Las Vegan Rick Down, who died at home Saturday at age 68, spent 17 seasons as a major league hitting coach.
If there’s anything most Las Vegas sports fans can agree upon, it’s that Sam Boyd Stadium and Cashman Field stink, and that hopefully there will be places to park at the new hockey arena.
When I bumped into Tim Chambers Saturday morning on the UNLV campus, the wind had not yet started to blow. The Rebels baseball coach was driving a golf cart, showing supporters around. He appeared happy, happy and hairy.
UNLV’s next baseball game is tonight, against North Dakota. The last time the North Dakota team played a home game was May 18, 2013, because it’s too cold to play baseball in Grand Forks at this time of year.
Tennessee. Nebraska. Arkansas. Clemson. West Virginia. Arizona State twice. Home and away. If I had to guess, UNLV baseball coach Tim Chambers isn’t all that worried about becoming bowl eligible.
