Mark Karaviotis featured in Oregonian newspaper
March 7, 2014 - Robert Collias
Mark Karaviotis, a freshman out of Maui High, is making a push to be the starting shortstop for the No. 14 University of Oregon baseball team — even headcoach Goerge Horton said so today.
Here is the start of a story on Karaviotis from by Tyson Alger of Oregonlive.com and The Oregonian newspaper:
EUGENE – It was assumed that Kevin Minjares would be the one to accept the baton and become Oregon's next shortstop. What wasn't expected was a freshman running out of the stands, streaking onto the track and taking it right out of his hands.
With a three-game series against Ohio State (7-3) beginning Friday and Pac-12 Conference play on the horizon, Mark Karaviotis is quickly becoming the favorable choice for No. 14 Oregon (10-3) and coach George Horton at shortstop.
With Minjares, a senior who began the season as the starter, relegated to the bench, Karaviotis has made the most out of the opportunity in the middle of the field.
"We have a talented freshman who might bring more to the table than (Minjares) might," Horton said. "I would suspect Karaviotis, unless he does something crazy, will start this weekend. Hopefully as every game goes by it'll be more and more seasoning and experience and not have some bobbles, so to speak."
