Ewing, Arnold Leave Baseball Team
Just a little over a week after being named a Freshman All-American, Mike Capshaw writes in today's Morning News that Razorbacks second baseman James Ewing is leaving the team. Outfielder Clint Arnold is also leaving to pursue more playing time at another school.
Ewing was apparently unhappy being separated from his twin brother Michael Ewing, who plays for Southern Mississippi. According to the article, James is planning to reunite with him at Hattiesburg.
As anyone will tell you who watched the Diamond Hogs this year, losing Ewing is a devastating blow. The future success of next season's team just got a little more cloudy for Dave Van Horn and his staff.
