It’s another fine day of postseason college baseball action here at Balladeer’s Blog. The NCCAA2 World Series champions will be crowned today as those two juggernauts from the South Region, the Florida Christian College Suns and the Toccoa Falls College Eagles clash for the title.
The Suns and the defending champion Eagles are rapidly becoming the Yankees and Red Sox of the NCCAA. They faced each other for the South Region championship, then came into the World Series seeded 1st (TFC) and 2nd (FCC) and with the dust settled they’re the only teams left standing to play for it all.
Meanwhile the Galveston College Whitecaps (logo above left) are among the NJCAA teams hitting the diamond today as their playoffs resume, and in the NAIA playoffs the Oklahoma City Bracket rejoins the other brackets in action after a hiatus yesterday.
Keep checking back here at Balladeer’s Blog for updated scores as they become available.
