CWS: Why you have to love Dallas Buck

By Eric Sorenson - June 17, 2006

Norm Maves, the writer from The Oregonian who follows the Beavers throughout the year, told me one of the greatest side notes about the OSU starter. Norm says that not only is Buck a two-year veteran of the Beaver football team, he used to play free safety in high school and would purposely let opposing receivers catch footballs across the middle, for the sole reason of being able to kill them with a haymaker hit.

Since his rising stock in baseball, Buck has quit playing football in Corvallis. But it's not a decision he's happy with. Killer Kowalski would dig this guy.
