in Sports by

The College World Series finals begin Monday night featuring two teams from the same conference, but two distinctly different histories in Omaha. The SEC regular season co-champion LSU Tigers, gunning for their 7th national crown, face the co-champion Florida Gators, who are looking for their first national title. For the first 40 years of the college baseball championship round, the Tigers were a non-factor. The first champion was crowned in 1947, but LSU did not reach the CWS until 1986.…

Florida, Florida State on the winning end of baseball’s June Madness

in Sports by

The NCAA College Baseball Tournament is not likely to come anywhere near the broad popularity enjoyed by the basketball tournament known as March Madness. At the same time, referring to this year’s baseball extravaganza as June Madness would not be overstating what has taken place so far. Both Florida and Florida State have provided significant contributions to this year’s mayhem, which saw nearly half of the 16 seeded teams and regional hosts go down to defeat. Number two national seed…

FSU, UF to host NCAA regionals; other Florida schools will earn bids

Two weeks ago, the Florida State baseball team lost their regular season home finale to Wake Forest, 10-9. That left them 12-14 in ACC conference play with three games at then-No. 2 Louisville coming up, followed by the ACC Tournament in the same place. There was some concern whether FSU would even make the NCAA Tournament. Coach Mike Martin uttered his complete frustration after that game. “This one could have been really, really great for the resume,” he said while…
