Until this afternoon, Coastal Carolina had never won a national championship in a team sport, the Big South Conference had never had a national champion, and no College World Series participant had won the title in their first appearance in the finals in 60 years. The Coastal Carolina Chanticleers made all sorts of…
Here’s a tweet:
Are you charmed? Are you alarmed?
Remember Edgar Michelangeli, the University of Miami baseball player who clobbered a three-run home run during the ACC Tournament and stopped to admire it for a very long time before flipping his bat? Well, he did it again.
Sam Cohen’s walk-off grand slam with one out earned UCSB a 4-3 win over Louisville, one that will deliver the Gauchos to their first-ever College World Series.
Miami beat North Carolina State tonight in ACC Tournament action, thanks to Edgar Michelangeli’s late homer. He really savored it, too—and caused a bit of a stir.
Look, baseball is hard. You have to catch and throw a little tiny white ball past someone who wants to murder it with a stick that was expressly made to murder the ball. If your opponent clobbers it, you have to scramble around and shit. This isn’t to excuse the incredible meltdown Oakland suffered on this play, just…
Auburn pitcher Justin Camp must have a notoriously slow windup or Ethan Paul must be an exceedingly brave baserunner, because during the seventh inning of this afternoon’s Auburn-Vanderbilt baseball game, Paul took off and stole home on Camp. Vanderbilt’s two other baserunners also managed to advance, and they pulled…
N.C. State baseball coach Elliott Avent isn’t with his team for this weekend’s series agains Louisville, all because he had to fuck up a snake that bit him and his puppy.
Here we have University of California pitcher Ryan Mason throwing a baseball through a falling pipe, which is pretty damn cool:
Saturday night’s Arkansas-LSU game suffered a marsupial delay in the seventh inning, as a baby opossum stormed the field and evaded capture by Razorbacks outfielders.
A group text message among Saint Louis University baseball players in which team members made racist comments about Barack Obama will not lead to formal discipline, university administrators decided, because it was a private conversation and therefore not a bias-related incident.
Many, many people have played professional baseball, and as math would have it, a few of them have names that sounded like the sport’s favorite drink. Back in ’48, a Clarence Beers pitched most of one inning, badly, for the Cardinals. More recently, a Scott Beerer kicked around the minors for most of the aughts,…
Miami Hurricanes star right fielder Willie Abreu has had one hell of a week. Last Friday, he dinged a walk off grand slam to beat Louisville. The Canes were taking on Clemson last night and had a comfortable lead until their bullpen blew a five-run lead.
College baseball, as much as we love it, embraces some of the sport’s worst elements: repeated bunting and pickoff attempts. At least Rice pitcher Blake Fox has an interesting approach to the latter, as his fifth-inning attempt to pick off a Ragin’ Cajuns runner used a very unconventional and, dare we say, sly…
Vanderbilt rightfielder Rhett Wiseman was a third-round pick in this year’s MLB draft, but after catching a fastball to the neck from TCU’s Tyler Alexander in the first inning of tonight’s College World Series game, we can’t imagine he was thinking much about his upcoming payday with the Nationals.
Okay, fine, of course you will. It’s obviously Vanderbilt. He looks just like a Dansby, too.
UNC Wilmington and Tulane kept themselves busy during a lengthy rain delay in their NCAA regional matchup, with Wilmington outfielder Joe Bertone taking individual honors with this Rock Bottom/People’s Elbow finish.
St. Thomas (Miami) pitcher Ben Ancheff got the whole Internet talking last night after starting in the Bobcats’ NAIA World Series game in Idaho last night against Lewis-Clark State. But it wasn’t his 5.40 ERA or his unimpressive 3-2 record that blew everybody’s heads off; it was his girth. So much girth. Look at this…
