Hear Us Shout & Roar
Wahoowa! UVa Baseball
by Wyatt Moorer
Nothing is better on a warm spring day than a UVA baseball game. Like all other varsity sports, regular season admission to UVA baseball games are free, making them a popular entertainment option for students. Students are not the only people who frequent the baseball games. Many from Charlottesville and the state of Virginia will travel in to see the Hoos play.
Our baseball team is not only fun to watch, they are good; very good. Throughout a majority of the year, our baseball team was ranked number one in the nation. Now the team is headed to Omaha for the College World Series among a total of eight schools to have made it this far. The UVA baseball team has made it to the College World Series three times in the past six years, illustrating the program’s dominance over time. To get to the College World Series this year, UVA had to beat Maryland in the Super Regional round. Maryland won the first game, but even then, most Hoo fans were calm knowing UVA could win the next two games to advance. UVA did just that, having impressive showings in their next two victories against Maryland winning 7-3 and 11-2 respectively.
UVA will face Ole Miss on Sunday June 15th in their first game of the College World Series. To follow all UVA baseball action simply keep up with the team on their website or on twitter.
