Slate: Afternoon Delight

Early afternoon Slate for your first day of August

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Oakland Athletics
Nick Martini has quite the beard

Pretty light newsday, even for hitting the Slate in the afternoon.

First up, BracketCat finished up yesterday with our “other” #32, senior running back Justin Silmon. And because we are a little behind today, he beat the Slate with the profile of #31 Jahron McPherson. Yes, folks, we are one calendar month from K-State football!

Over at the Wichita Eagle/KC Star, Kellis Robinett asked five important questions about K-State’s offense as it heads into training camp. Spoiler: QB is the first question.

K-State athletics announced details for the annual Fan Appreciation Day, to be held this year on August 11th, with the event set to begin at 5:00pm.

K-State Sports also dropped their weekly summer baseball update; former Wildcat Nick Martini continues to impress, going 2-for-4 with an RBI in the Athletics 10-1 win over the Blue Jays on Monday night, and he is hitting .409 over his last 10 games.

Last but not least, the Sports Extra for today featured K-State baseball volunteer assistant coach Shane Conlon, who was retained by new head coach Pete Hughes. Conlon, who was an All-Big 12 performer twice during his time at K-State - including during the 2013 Big 12 Championship season - speaks highly of the new coach and the apparent direction of the program, and is excited for the future of K-State baseball.
