Stony Brook Baseball: Underdog Story Is Just What College World Series Needs

Published by on June 13, 2012

If you aren't rooting for Stony Brook at the College World Series, you don't have a soul. 

Or, you know, you are an Arizona, UCLA, Florida, Florida State, South Carolina, Kent State or Arkansas supporter. That's fine, too. 

But if you don't have any prior invested interest, I don't see how you can't fall in love with the Stony Brook story.

Back before the Seawolves—that's another thing. It's hard not to love a team whose nickname is the Seawolves—rolled through the American East tournament, NCAA had them ranked 86th in the country. 


The magical story doesn't stop there.

Once at the Coral Gable Regionals, No. 4 (out of four) Stony Brook rolled through Miami, UCF and Missouri State to advance to the Super Regionals. 

All the Seawolves had to do was beat No. 1 LSU. In Baton Rouge. The Tigers took the first game, but Stony Brook won the next two and now they are heading to the College World Series.
