Teams from the SEC are regulars in the championship series of the College World Series, with LSU having been in the finals 16 times and won it all 6 times and South Carolina making an appearance 11 times and winning it all twice. LSU went on a streak where they won five championships between 1991 and 2000. Every game in the SEC is capable of being a legendary match up so be sure to get your tickets as soon as possible.
Nothing quite compares to the time honored tradition of taking in a college baseball game. After all, there is a reason baseball is regularly referred to as America's Pastime. From the smell of the freshly cut grass to the National Anthem echoing through the stands and the crack of the bat as a hitter connects with a pitch, to the sight of a ball flying over the outfield wall and the taste of a fresh hot dogs or Cracker Jacks, attending a baseball game is a a sensory experience like no other and the memories it produces will last a lifetime. The ultimate family day or night out, a baseball game is the perfect bonding experience whether seeing the game with family, friends, or co-workers. As the innings and pitches pile up everyone in attendance can feel the intensity pick up as every pitch, run, and base runner, begin to matter more and more. By the time the seventh inning stretch rolls around a break from the action is welcome just to settle the nerves and enjoy a traditional song before getting right back to all the excitement for the final two and a half innings. As you file out of the stadium after the last out you likely will already be wanting to start making plans for your next visit to the ballpark.
Georgia really started to make a name for itself in the late Eighties and have been to the College World Series six times, in 1987, 1990, 2001, 2004, 2006, and 2008, including winning it all in 1990.
