ASU, of course, has a great tradition and has turned out many major leaguers over the years. (Fullerton's turned out a few as well, of course.) Is ASU's program now anything like what it once was?
ASU is thought to have their best team since 1981 when they last won the CWS. Many picked the Sun Devils to win the CWS this year before the tournament began, and now with five of the nationally seeded teams eliminated already and with Rice and North Carolina eliminating one another somewhere along the way, they'll only have to beat at most one nationally seeded team.
Congrats to both teams! My BIL is a big CSUF fan and was at their game last night, as well as the tournament last weekend. My sister took him to the CWS for Father's Day 2 (?) years ago, but I think she's off the hook this year.
What a game it was. I take nothing away from the Anteaters. I was just sad that the winning rally was started when a kid deliberately leaned into a pitch to get on base.
Fullerton coach George Horton disputed the call and was ejected from the game. No, it didn't cost Fullerton the game because they still had a chance to get three outs, and got only two. But how that plate umpire missed that call, I'll never know.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
