5/6 Congrats to Iowa's Barney
Darwin Barney was named to the 28-member College World Series Legends Team, the NCAA and College World Series, Inc. announced. Barney, the starting shortstop for the Iowa Cubs, attended Oregon State University and was named to the All-Tournament team. He homered and drove in two runs to help the Beavers clinch their second-straight College World Series title in 2007. The team was established as part of the commemoration of the final Series in Omaha’s Johnny Rosenblatt Stadium. The College World Series has been held there since 1950 and a new ballpark will open in Omaha in 2011.
The 28 members of the Legends Team were selected after more than 100,000 votes were cast by college baseball fans, college baseball writers and Division I head baseball coaches.
