Gamecocks Close Rosenblatt by Winning First CWS

Omaha, NE:
For those of you who missed it, the South Carolina Gamecocks won the 2010 College World Series the hard way, winning six straight games after losing the opener to Oklahoma. The Gamecocks beat the UCLA Bruins 2-1 in 11 innings Tuesday night for their first NCAA Baseball Championship in the last game to be played at historic Rosenblatt Stadium. I was lucky enough to have the night off of work to watch South Carolina tie the game in the 9th before winning the game in exta innings. I like to see teams win their first championship, especially in games as exciting as this. I regret not getting to Rosenblatt to witness the CWS firsthand, but plan on attending in the future for one of my baseball trips. I’ve grown to be a big fan of college baseball over the last few years. We try to catch at least one game on our trip, and they usually end up being the most competetive. You can read up on 2010 CWS
HERE. 
Personally, though, I was pulling for TCU.

I saw the walk-off… that was pretty awesome. College baseball is pretty great… except those damn aluminum bats. I hate that PING sound. Gives me the willies.

That was an awesome game, wasn’t it? I watched it and was blown away by two things: 1) the final hit at Rosenblatt stadium, which was just an awesome liner to right; 2) the kid who punched the bench and had to be removed from the game. It was a pretty darn cool game, for sure.

You aint kiddin’…that is a hard road taken to a championship. I’ve been paying a little more attention to college games over the last 3 years now. Baseball is great on any level.
I’m with Jeff on the bats.

This is a very simple game...

You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball...Of course, baseball fans know that this line from Bull Durham is far from true, part of the humor of the movie and a huge part of the fun of the game. This blog is a space to talk about baseball, being a baseball fan, all of those things that make the game fun and the Angels, because they make baseball fun for me.
