Published by on June 24, 2013

UCLA and Mississippi State have advanced to the Championship Series in Omaha on the backs of their stars, but it will be the role players who step up starting Monday night.

These are the players who have a huge impact on the result of the game, but aren’t necessarily in the limelight. If they have a good game, their team tends to come out with a victory. If they perform poorly, they might be the guy that no one wants to look in the face in the clubhouse after a loss.

Here are three players who will determine Game 1 in Omaha, whether they help their program win the Championship Series opener or are the reason their team is down 1-0.
