If you yearn for a playoff atmosphere in June, there’s not much for you in MLB or the Bus Leagues. Fortunately, we have college baseball, which starts the season in the frigid months so it can coincide with kids actually being in school instead of on beaches somewhere.
Friend of the site Brian Foley has been running the highly successful College Baseball Blog for a couple of years now, and he and his staff have done their usual bang-up job of previewing the early rounds that lead up to the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska. Check up on your local teams by reading the capsules below:
I’m more than a little bummed that my hometown U. of Virginia squad won’t be hosting a regional this year. They flopped at home the past couple of years and failed to advance, so maybe it’s just as well that they’re being shipped out to Fullerton, where the Titans will be facing the pressure of moving on in front of a home crowd.
Thanks for keeping us up to date, Brian! There’s nothing quite like the *PING!* of the bat in early summer.
