Home Run Record

In the same week that Barry Bonds is chasing Babe Ruth's record of 714 career home runs, the Gators have a Babe Ruth of their own. Matt LaPorta is one HR within former Gator and now Texas Rangers OF Brad Wilkerson's school record of 55. I doubt this will get the same media attention that Bonds does, but come this summer expect Matt's name to be called early in the June draft.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. A year after the Gators were in the College World Series championship, the Gators won't even qualify for the SEC tourney.
