Cal State Fullerton Comeback

What a comback for CSF!

Top of the ninth, 2 out, man of first, base hit and an intentional walk to load the bases. Three ending up scoring and CSF defeats Georgia Tech in an elimination game at the College World Series in Omaha.

If you ever get a chance to go to Omaha for baseball, do it. The atmosphere is fantastic. It's the only place I've ever seen cheerleaders for baseball.

I was able to go from 1973-1976 when I was stationed there while in the Air Force. At that time, it wasn't such a big deal. This was before ESPN and the games weren't even televised. I used to get free tickets at the looking convenience stores for free. It was the same with the Omaha Royals KC's AAA team. I never had to pay for a ticket because they were free at the convenience stores.

I visited Rosenblatt stadium a couple of years ago. It was absolutely fantastic. The stadium has been remodeled remodeled and there are some really interesting baseball statues outside.

Stop by if you ever get a chance, even if it's not baseball season.
