Karaviotis making his mark for Oregon baseball
May 31, 2014 - Robert Collias
Just watching Mark Karaviotis play baseball for four seasons for Maui High School showed me that the kid had the moxie to be good.
Even after being drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 39th round last June, I didn't think it would happen this quick for Karaviotis, who is now the University of Oregon's starting shortstop.
Here is the start of my story from Friday's paper:
One year ago, Mark Karaviotis was a brand-new graduate of Maui High School.
In early March, Oregon baseball coach George Horton said his talented freshman shortstop had a very big upside.
In late April, Karaviotis was named as one of 35 candidates for the Brooks Wallace Award, given to the nation's best college shortstop.
Oregon beat Clemson 18-1 in its NCAA regional opener on Friday and faces regional host Vanderbilt in a crucial game today.
