This past year I have recently become a huge baseball fan. I would say it is perfect timing now that the University of Arizona Wildcats are playing extremely well in the College World Series.

The series is being held at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Nebraska and the Wildcats are definitely turning a lot of heads. On Sunday, June 17, they moved one step closer to winning the national championship when they defeated UCLA with a 4-0 win. Next, they have a rematch Florida State, who knocked UCLA out of the tournament last night, at 2 pm tomorrow, with the game broadcast on ESPN2 (possibly also online at ESPN3.com) and on the radio at 1290 AM.

Needless to say, I am proud to be a Wildcat and I am excited to what is in store for the rest of the championship!

Read more about the game from Sunday night here and take a look at the bracket. Arizona has to win one of its next two games in order to advance to the final round to win the best-of-three final games.
