NCAA Baseball Super Regionals 2012: Predictions for Stanford vs. Florida State

Published by on June 9, 2012

The Stanford Cardinal and Florida State Seminoles will battle one another in the Tallahassee Super Regionals for the chance to move on to the next step in the 2012 College World Series. 

Both teams have played at a high level all year long thanks to some MLB-level talent on their rosters, and the competition will be fierce. 

Three players from these two schools were taken before the second round of the 2012 MLB draft, and there are plenty of other talented players that have helped them combine for a record of 87-31.
