Texas advances to finals

Omaha, Neb. -- Texas will be playing for its second national title in three years this weekend when the top-seeded Longhorns (58-13) meet either South Carolina or Cal State Fullerton in the best-of-three series that starts Saturday at the College World Series.

Huston Street, above right with teammate Curtis Thigpen, pitched three innings of one-hit relief Wednesday to help UT eliminate Georgia, 7-6.

Baker coach honored

Former Baker University coach Charlie Richard will be among 22 inductees in The College Football Hall of Fame Aug. 13-14 in South Bend, Ind.

Richard led Baker to a record of 123-28-1 and an NAIA-best winning percentage of .813. In 14 seasons, he guided the Wildcats to at least a share of 11 Heart of America Athletic Conference titles and 10 NAIA playoff appearances.

Richard, who died in 1994, will be represented in South Bend by his family.
