OMAHA STILL BOOKED FOR JUNE: In Omaha, Steven Pivovar notes a "possible shift in when the College World Series is played is one of the discussion points" in the NCAA-MLB talks. NCAA VP/Baseball & Football Dennis Poppe said yesterday that he “doubts the NCAA would ever agree to any drastic changes that would see the event played earlier in the year." Poppe: “There are a lot of moving parts in this discussion, and we’re looking at all the options in regard to what’s best for the parties involved. But changing the dates of the College World Series is something I just don’t see happening.” Poppe said that the NCAA “first began talking with representatives of MLB and the players union in 2008.” He noted that former MLBPA Exec Dir Donald Fehr and late NCAA President Myles Brand were “catalysts of the talks” (Omaha WORLD-HERALD, 5/9).
