HI NOTES: Baseball @ Basketball, Kinsler @ MU

Missouri baseball's Ian Kinsler returns for Hall of Fame induction (Columbia Missourian)
He learned how to do things he never would have at home, like how to hit in the cold and how to field ground balls on the bumpy surface of a cornfield, where coach Evan Pratte would take his players for extra work.

"It's this odd area on the other side of the interstate," Kinsler said. "That's something I'll always remember: jumping in vans with my teammates and driving across the freeway to a farm to take ground balls on a little infield cutout of corn."
