Ohio State pitcher Zach Farmer says his leukemia is in remission

Ohio State baseball player Zach Farmer received some good news this week. His leukemia is in remission.

The freshman pitcher, who was diagnosed with myeloid leukemia, is ready for the next step in his recovery, a bone marrow transplant.

The Buckeyes coaching staff did not know that Farmer had any medical issues until he informed head coach Greg Beals, the final week of April that while he was throwing on the side, he felt dizzy and weak.

The athletic trainers were alerted to Farmer’s condition and testing revealed that he had leukemia on April 29.

Farmer’s teammates and coaches in an effort to help, all were tested to see if they were a bone marrow match.

Farmer’s last win of the season was on Sunday, April 20 against Murray State, 7-3 at Bill Davis Stadium. He ended the season with a 6-4 record.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – The Ohio State baseball team hit the field for the first time as a team in 2012 Friday afternoon in Woody Hayes Athletic Center.

The Buckeyes return 15 letterwinners off a 2011 team that finished 13-11 in Big Ten play and advanced to the conference tournament at Huntington Park. However, the next three weeks leading up to the season opener against USF in the Big Ten/Big East Challenge in St. Petersburg, Fla., will be crucial to the maturation of team that welcomes 14 newcomers.

“We are all very excited to get the 2012 season started,” Ohio State head coach Greg Beals said. “Today’s first team practice has been long-awaited. This team has worked extremely hard together this offseason. We are more than ready to make the step towards this championship chase.”


The team will have 16 more team practices before flying to Florida Jan. 16 where it will take on USF, Seton Hall and Connecticut the first weekend of the season. The Buckeyes will play their first game on February 17 in St. Petersburg against South Florida.


Artificial Turf coming to OSU’s Bill Davis Stadium

Ohio State baseball coach Greg Beals had been thinking for awhile about having Bill Davis Stadium’s surface changing from natural grass to artificial turf.

There are several colleges who have the the GameDay Grass surface that Beals desired, Duke, Wake Forest, Wichita State and pro teams, Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays.

Illinois, Texas and the Cincinnati Bearcats also play baseball games on artificial turf.

So, Ohio State will be joining in that group in the fall.

AstroTurf GameDay Grass will be installed in time for the beginning of fall practice. The turf will cover every part of the field except the pitcher’s mound, warning track, batter’s box and the base areas.

Former Ohio State baseball star Nick Swisher, a two-time all-Big Ten performer and current New York Yankees outfielder, donated a genorous amount of money to get the project started.

OSU comes back to beat Northwestern, 7-2

Game story from Christopher Henderson

The Ohio State Buckeyes baseball team has a different makeup this year and its just not in the coaching staff.

On the field, the Buckeyes will have to play almost a perfect game. They will not be able to blow teams off the field because they lost six star players from Bob Todd’s final team. They lost several key players to the Major League Baseball draft, ace pitcher Alex Wimmers in the first round to the Minnesota Twins, catcher Dan Burkhart, left fielder Zach Hurley and second baseman Cory Kovanda.

Case-in-point was new head coach Greg Beals’ first Big Ten win over Northwestern. Ohio State scored four runs in the seventh inning without getting the ball out of the infield in the comeback win of 7-2 in Bill Davis Stadium.

OSU starter Drew Rucinski allowed five hits and struck out five in taking a 1-0 lead into the seventh inning. However, the Wildcats started to zero in on Rucinski’s pitches. Northwestern designated hitter Jack Livingston had a lead-off triple off the centerfield wall. Geoff Rowan followed with a run-scoring single to left. Later in the inning, Rowan scored on an infield single by Patrick Miller and the Bucks were trailing 2-1.

Wildcats starting pitcher Luke Farrell was just as stingy on the Buckeyes. But they got to him and scored four runs on two hits in the bottom of the seventh to take back the lead for good at 5-2.

The interesting inning stacked up this way. The first run scored when David Corna was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, the second came across on a wild pitch, the third on an infield single by Brian DeLucia and the fourth on a passed ball.

The win upped OSU to 9-10 on the season.
