We tragically lost a part of our baseball family, Mitch Caster (Wichita State), to a car accident early Monday (8/23/2010) morning. There are many that are feeling the pain but none more so than his own family. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and everyone who is coping with this heart wrenching and unexpected loss.  We have set up a page in honor of Mitch so that we can keep you all updated on the arrangements as we receive them. Thank you all for your thoughts, prayers, concerned calls and heartfelt messages.
