Chess champ pitches his way to the top

From an article on the North Carolina Tar Heels pitching staff:

Miller and Bard are power pitchers coming from different sides while Woodard uses more finesse to get hitters out. A former state chess champ, he has the background for staying a pitch or two ahead of opponents.

"When you play chess, you try to prepare to exploit weaknesses, and it's kind of the same in baseball,'' he said. "It's all about preparation and knowing your opponent, but at the same time looking ahead.''
