CSUF returns to the CWS and somehow UCI followed

Cal State Fullerton returns to Omaha tomorrow taking on Oregon State in the first round of the College World Series tomorrow. On the same day, UCI (you mean they actually have a good baseball team, besides having the national champs in volleyball. Wait, they won and no one noticed? Not surprised) plays Arizona State.

The Titans basically live in Omaha:
15 CWS Appearances (out of 33 seasons in division 1)
5 CWS Titles
29 Regional Appearances
Best record for on the road wins in Regional and Super-Regional games
CSUF Fans Party and BBQ at the Titan House
Kevin Costner … “Field of Dreams
Knocked out UCLA!

UCI – Baseball built from CSUF talent (Current Head Coach Serrano was an assistant under Horton)
0 – Previous CWS Appearances
1992 – Year baseball was axed due to budget cuts
1998 – Year Students voted to bring Baseball back to UCI
8 – Number of Players drafted in the MLB draft this year
4 – Number of blocks from the Titan house where UCI will have their BBQ

Since we don’t have Division 1 football at both CSUF and UCI, Baseball has become the marquee sport for Division 1 NCAA schools in Orange County.

Go Titans!

Could we see CSUF v. UCI at the College World Series?

    UCI has beaten Fullerton in the longest game of the CWS history, and has now beaten Arizona too….Go Anteaters!

    Ah yes, I was bummed to hear that Fullerton lost and that the Anteaters beat ASU tonight. If UCI can beat OSU I’ll be impressed, but I don’t give them that much of a chance.

    Good luck, because UCI will need it against OSU.
