The Florida State baseball league said it is canceling the finals of its playoffs.

Thornton, who signed a four-year, $17 million deal that included $9 million guaranteed, never really fit what the Cowboys were seeking. He was unable to beat out Terrell McClain for the starting spot a year ago; this year he was beaten out by Stephen Paea. He was slowed in training camp by a hamstring strain.

He played in 13 games a year ago and was credited by the coaches with 18 tackles, 1.5 sacks, three tackles for loss, nine quarterback pressures, a pass deflection, forced fumble and fumble recovery.

The Florida State baseball league said it is canceling the finals of its playoffs. The league will hold single games on Tuesday and doubleheaders, if necessary, on Wednesday to crown co-champions.

Earlier in the year, a customer had noted the wide appeal of BTB: “At what restaurant can you bring a hot date and still see your sports event on TV? The Bucket has been around since the last century, outlasting my first marriage, and 13 years into my second marriage.”

On Tuesday afternoon, co-owner Jim Furiosi expressed his gratitude for such supportive customers, especially during this wrenching time. “It’s been very hard emotionally for my entire family,” he said. “I just said goodbye to an employee who has been here since 1985.”

According to Mercury News archives, original owner Garcia opened a joint that attracted folks from all walks of life — “hard hats, cowboys, collegiates and sand-lot ball players.”
