It seems to be that Ohio State has chosen their new baseball coach to succeed the retired Bob Todd.

Greg Beals of Mid-American Conference member Ball State is the chosen one.

Beals will probably bring one member of his Ball State staff with him. Former Ohio State closer, Mike Stafford from the 1997 and 1998 seasons, is his pitching coach.

Other finalists for the coveted job included: Kent State coach Scott Stricklin, Louisville assistant Chris Lemonis,Virginia assistant Kevin McMullan and Indiana coach Tracy Smith.

It had been rumored that others interviewed for the job such as Cincinnati coach Brian Cleary and Akron’s Pat Bengsten, a former Todd assistant, but no one would confirm this to be true.

The Ohio State became a hot ticket when the 61-year-old Todd announced his retirement during the late part of the season. He ended 23 years as the coach and had two years left on a three-year contract.

In eight years at Ball State, Beals had a record of 243-202. He won Mid-American Conference West Division championships in 2003, 2006 and 2009 and a conference tournament title in 2006.

In 2006, the Cardinals played in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1969. They went on to upset number-1 seeded Kentucky in the first round of the Lexington Regional.

Ball State in 2010, played one of the most difficult non-conference schedules in the nation (fourth) and ended up 29-29.

Before being hired to coach at the Muncie, Indiana school, Beals spent nine years as an assistant at his alma mater, Kent State. The Golden Flashes won two Mid-American Conference championships and played in three NCAA Tournaments during his tenure.

He graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in human movement studies in 1995 and has a Master’s degree in sports administration in 1999 from Kent State.

Beals played three years of minor-league baseball in the New York Mets organization after being drafted in 1991 in the 22nd round.

The book on Beals is that he is a fantastic recruiter and has seen twenty of his players drafted by Major League Baseball teams.

Beals is a Springfield, Ohio native having graduated from Kenton Ridge High School. He is married and has three daughters.

Lakers dominate Celtics to force Game 7 on Thursday

compiled from staff and wire reports

With First Lady Michelle Obama was on hand watching the game from a luxury box in the Staples Center and it might’ve inspired the Lakers.

Faced with elimination for the first time during the 2010 playoffs, the Los Angeles Lakers took matters into their own hands.

Kobe Bryant scored 26 points, Pau Gasol added 17 points and 13 rebounds, and the Lakers held Boston to the second lowest-scoring performance in NBA finals history in an 89-67 victory in Game 6, setting up a winner-take-all Game 7 in Los Angeles.

Ron Artest added 15 points for the Lakers, who got their backs off the wall with a dazzling first half and a strong finish built around defense that suffocated Boston to 33 percent shooting. Only Utah’s 54-point performance against Chicago in 1998 was worse.

Paul Pierce led the Celtics with 13 points and Kevin Garnett added 12, but their offense was mostly held to jumbled, clogged-up and stand-around-and-watch as point guard Rajon Rondo had nowhere to go with the ball.
