The Greg Schaum 2013 Local Watch Schedule (University of Kansas)

I thought I would go ahead and list the watch schedule for the schools in my “watch” area. If you are at a game that I am not at we always appreciate extra coverage with write ups and/or video/pictures if you take them.

*not listing games unless there is 2013 MLB draft talent playing (also will list 2014 watch list)

Area for me is (Kansas, Missouri, SouthWest Iowa, Mid Central to West Nebraska, Northwest Arkansas, and Northeast Oklahoma)

Greg Schaum

Grew up on the streets of Overland Park...played my high school ball at Shawnee Mission North before playing college ball in Riverside, CA. I graduated from an original Big 8 school and love this great city. My favorite player as a kid was Frank Tanana and I thought U.L Washington was a cool MOFO
