I have been a baseball fan all my life after Coastal Carolina won the CWS in 2016 I found college baseball to be more entertaining than most all other baseball. When you realize these teams are putting the product on the field they are with only 11.7 scholarships, you know the passion involved in college baseball is second to none!
I had barely been aware that Indiana even played baseball. I heard they built a new field and we’re on a winning streak in 2013 so I went out to a game and had a good time. I didn‘t go back for a while, but watched the Big Ten tournament on TV and got hooked. Next season I went to most home games. Now I contribute to a fan website about the team, go to fall scrimmages, and even go to road games when I can.
The college baseball bug can get you quick. Indiana is especially fun to watch. Love the bats there.
I played baseball in my youth and was a big MLB fan (Cincinnati Reds Big Red Machine in particular.) Didn't really get into college baseball until David Price came to Vanderbilt. Since then I've become a Vandy season ticket holder and never miss a game, often traveling around the country to see them play. I've been to Omaha 3 times and witnessed our 2014 national championship.
Vanderbilt is definitely on my bucket list of places I want to visit. So much MLB talent has gone through Nashville.
One chilly afternoon in 1976, some of my college buddies suggested watching a game at Cliff Hagan Stadium. (Baseball > Calculus class.) We did. I’ve been a fan ever since. (And, since retiring in late 2016, a UK baseball season ticket holder.)
Some of my favorite memories from college are going to games in the summer after the school year ended
I playing and My Father took Me to the College World Series In 1987
Been in it for the long haul!
I played baseball growing up in Texas. Sports in Texas are a way of life!
Being a Texas native I certainly agree! Whether it be baseball, football, basketball or another sport, it's a big deal in the Lone Star State.
