Michigan Heading to the College World Series After Upset Win
The baseball program at Michigan snapped a six-year drought of making it to the men's baseball tournament last month. Now they have their tickets punched to Omaha, Nebraska to challenge for a national championship. It has been 35 years since the Wolverines made it this far. Michigan's head coach Erik Bakich was only seven. So it has been a while.
No one expected Michigan to make it this far. The Wolverines were the final team to make it into the tournament and have taken every advantage of being the underdog. In the best two out of three series, the Wolverines knocked off the number one seeded Bruins of UCLA to make it to their eighth World Series. They are the first BIG TEN team to make it this far since Indiana did so back in 2013.
The unranked Wolverines take a 46-20 record into the final stages of the tournament this weekend. They will face the eighth-seeded Texas Tech on Saturday.
