Is Baker Mayfield headed to the diamond?

Baker Mayfield has a heck of an arm and some athleticism to boot, so the Oklahoma QB excelling at other sports wouldn’t come as a shock.

Oklahoma football and basketball have dominated in 2015-16, so Sooners fans are hoping the baseball team can follow suit.
