College World Series Baseball Championship in a 4 to 3 win over a tough, young Arizona team in the best of three games. Congratulations to Coastal Carolina, their logo and name which reminds me of a story about the best game rooster that my dad ever owned back in the 1930s, a Carolina Blue that never lost a single fight! [:)] WTG Carolina!

    They deserve it. I watched several of their games. Those young men worked and played hard for it.

    My daughter graduated from Coastal, despite it's reputation as a party school she worked hard and earned two masters degrees.

    If I am not mistaken Coastal winning it all is a HUGE accomplishment when compared to schools that are much larger.

    Isn't this sort of like a high school team beating a pro team?
    Why don't we go to school and work on the weekends and take the week off!

    They did. They were solid in all aspects of the game, winning some games on unearned runs and others with great batting and base running, and superb coaching as well.

    Looked like Arizona was about to take it in the ninth. I didn't want to hex Coastal so I didn't watch the last two batters. My son came in and said "they won!" Happy for the Roosters. [:D]

    You have to hand it to the coaching, too. They put in their left handed closer, Holmes, with one out in the sixth in the middle of an Arizona rally. He took out the left hand batter and struck the next man out to end the inning. Then, while I'm thinking he will keep this ace in for three innings, he puts in a right hand pitcher who got in very serious trouble, before he came alive and worked out of it. This guy then settles in and polishes off the last batter during an AZ rally with absolutely superb pitching in the clutch. Great coaching!
