“You could be a kid for as long as you want when you play baseball.” ~ Cal Ripken, Jr.
Kids, these days.
The Virginia Cavaliers will play Dallas Baptist in the Columbia, SC best-of-three NCAA Super Regional which begins today (Saturday) with Game 1 at noon EST. (It airs on ESPNU.)
All baseball is good baseball, but there is a wonderful je ne sais quoi to college baseball.
Where something like this can happen to a team that, just a few weeks ago, wasn’t even expected to make the post season …
Columbia, SC Regionals last weekend.
Where something like this can happen on a Tuesday:
Tuesday. Game 5, ODU vs UVa, Columbia, SC Regionals.
Where Dippin’ Dots (!!!) can become a storyline …
Virginia closer Stephen Schoch. National Treasure.
… and it leads to this …
Cookies and Cream. Rainbow. Banana Split.
The winner of this best-of-three Super Regional will join the winner of the seven other Super Regionals at the College World Series in Omaha next week.
Please cheer for Virginia.
