Colvin has had an outstanding spring, hitting .468 in 20 games for the
Cubs. He has 29 hits in 62 at bats with two home runs and 13 runs
batted in. On Saturday he might have clinched his spot on the roster
when he had four hits in five at bats against San Diego. He had a home
run and two RBIs in the contest.

All-American according to Baseball America that year when he hit .356

title, the program's first in 12 years, and was named first-team All-ACC
and ACC Tournament MVP. He is most remembered at Clemson for his
walk-off grand slam in the Super Regional of the NCAA Tournament against
Oral Roberts that year. That Clemson team reached the College World
