College World Series 2012: Arizona Wildcats Prove They’re Here to Stay

Published by on June 23, 2012

After beating Florida State 10-3 in their most recent game, there’s no more that the Arizona Wildcats need to say. They’re here, they’re legitimate and they’re for real. And after pitcher Kurt Heyer (13-2) beat Florida State, they’re now only one win away from winning the College Baseball World Series.

They don’t need to say anything else. After shocking the world to get where they are today, there’s only so much left for the Wildcats to do. And they’ve already proven as much to the world: They’re not going anywhere.

Of the mainstream sports, baseball is the one least funded on the collegiate level. It’s hard for a Pac-12 school to financially sustain a team at the level of success that it would ideally like to. Oregon just got its team reinstated only a couple years ago, and more recently, Cal fought desperately to keep its baseball program.

Arizona faces similar issues.
