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. 

Eighty-sixth. 

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.
