LOGAN – Utah State University’s Club baseball team has earned a trip to the National Club World Series starting this week at Dolny Stadium in Greenwood, South Carolina.
The Aggies clinched the Northern Pacific Regional Title last week with a 5-3 victory over the Oregon Ducks to qualify for the national tournament.
By virtue of their 23-3 record and the regional championship, the Aggies are the #3 seed and will play in the tournament’s opening game Friday, May 27 at 10:30 a.m. Mountain Time against the sixth seeded Michigan Wolverines.
Head Coach Jake Anderson, a first baseman on USU’s 2014 team that played in the nationals, thinks the Aggies might be the tournament’s best overall team with a 10 runs a game average, outstanding pitching and solid defensive play.
The upcoming series will mark the final week of baseball for the team’s four seniors, Kesler Nelson, Jacob Pullen, Baden Rawlin and Wyatt Sorenson.
Games will be live streamed on the NCBA Facebook group.
