I’ve always liked the College World Series, and I’ll try to watch as much of it as I can. Though I don’t think they should use aluminum bats, I still love the sound of the ping of the aluminum bat. And just like most college championships versus professional championships, there’s just so much more passion on display, and that makes it that much more fun. Most, if not all of it, is on ESPN, and unless you’re in a foreign country, go watch some of it.
