Brayton and Olerud get hall call


It's not often when a school has a person elected to any college hall of fame. But it is a true rarity when two people from the same school are elected the same year.

Such is the case with Washington State. In only the second year of the College Baseball Hall of Fame, the Cougars' John Olerud and coach Bobo Brayton were both selected for induction, it was announced Tuesday.

Here's a link to the College Baseball Foundation's press release concerning the class of 2007 and this P-I story.

• Olerud and Brayton must not be too happy after this year's Cougs lost 12-6 to Gonzaga on Tuesday night.

• Steve Bergum's college baseball notebook leads with the Whitworth Pirates' season thus far.


• WSU defensive coordinator – and head coach – Bill Doba addressed his hopes for the defense on Tuesday and a lot of what the Cougs can do revolves around the cornerbacks, according to Glenn Kasses' story.

• The Times' Craig Smith also filed this story on the Coug defense and Todd Milles of Tacoma had this.
