Take a look at Brad and Kyle. These guys are among a distinct group of college baseball fans who love the College World Series, so long as they don’t have to watch any baseball. They’d just as well play Beat the Meat.
The College World Series draws a strange mix of fans like Kyle and Brad to see the eight remaining teams in NCAA baseball duke it out for a national championship. Aside from the stereotypical beer-drinking college boys, the event draws thousands of Nebraskans and Iowans who are plenty interested in watching the games. They just love baseball more than they do any particular team.
Our journey to Omaha’s Rosenblatt Stadium was a nostalgic visit for Troy. This is where he rekindled his love for baseball watching his alma mater win national championships in 2006 and 2007. Although the Beavers had been eliminated at the time of our visit, their storied three-year run left a lasting imprint on Omaha.
