South Carolina Gamecocks 5-2 win over Florida Gators gives the Gamecocks 2-0 series win and back to back College World Series championships. South Carolina won Game 1 2-1 in 11 Innings by overcoming being tied 1-1 in the 10th inning and UF had the bases loaded with no outs. The victory marked South Carolina 16th straight postseason win and 11th straight College World Series win both are records. South Carolina was lead by there starting pitcher Michael Roth 14-3 record and a 1.06 ERA for the reason. South Carolina was a team that stressed team play throughout the playoffs

As great as they were on the baseball diamond, the Gamecocks work off the field deserves a round of applause as well. South Carolina baseball team when not playing in Omaha, spend time visiting the Children’s Hospital and Medical Center of Omaha.

Quote by senior Robert Beary best explains the teams heart and dedication.

“All week we’re worried about us winning and then you come here, and none of that is on your mind,” senior Robert Beary said. “You come here and enjoy spending time with kids who are battling for their lives. We battle on the field but in the end, it’s not our lives. For them, it is. Visiting here is a way to step back and admire something besides baseball while we’re out here.”

Watching the College World Series and this team exemplified everything collegiate sports are all about; teamwork, dedication, clean play. Sure college baseball kids are allowed to be drafted, but as long as they do not sign pro contract they may return to school, but that’s a discussion for another day.

    Incredibly good thanks, There’s no doubt that your visitors could quite possibly want more writing along these lines keep up the excellent effort.

  3. Thanks for the suggestions you reveal through this site. In addition, several young women which become pregnant usually do not even aim to get medical care insurance because they dread they probably would not qualify. Although a few states now require that insurers give coverage in spite of the pre-existing conditions. Costs on these types of guaranteed options are usually larger, but when taking into consideration the high cost of health care bills it may be a new safer approach to take to protect your financial future.
