These last couple games have been the worst baseball the Hogs have played all year. I’m honestly shocked that they won the first one and had it won last night!!! Frustrating as a fan, but hey, it’s a pretty big feat to win the series.

Gotta play nearly perfect to win on the big stage and that hasn’t come CLOSE to happening. Horrible effort at the plate has been the cause IMO.

Hopefully blue tossed him back to 1992 when people still wore those sunglasses…

He knew what he was trying to do. Get tossed and the bats wake up you look like a genius, if they don't you still look like a dewsh, but no one knows who you are anyway. I'm still not sure the announcers ever figured out his name.

Arky went all in for the W in the first two games with their setup and closer. They were going to need ten plus hits in this one to have a chance.

Last game of the year is a bad time to have your worst. My Hogs didn’t deserve it with poor performances three games in a row.

Great season but tough way to end it! At least they lucked into beating the child molester in game one.

A fairly easy pop up away from Arkansas winning it all... that’ll sting a long time

Dad wanted to laugh at it all from how insane it is but said it’s no fun being in the losers dug out in Omaha (lost to Texas back in ‘83 to Clemen’s squad)

He was great... and a freshman..

Officiating was horrid all series..but it was consistently bad for both sides
..almost like they were trying to keep the ineptness even...

That game 2 foul ball blunder will haunt Arky... (as it would any team).. thats literally about as close to a championship you can come without winning... and a simple focus mistake kills the dream in an instant..
Feel for em.. but they had a great run..

Fun series to watch for sure.

What a great series! Beaver freshman threw a helluva game. That changeup was flat out nasty all CWS.



Beavers came in un-intimidated and took care of business amid all the freight train "talk". That's what I love about baseball.

Saw some chatter roasting the OS Coach for riding the pitcher as hard as he did. The article claimed that the coach was more worried about winning than taking care of the player. I think there has to be a balance, but I didn't see any signs that the kid was struggling. In defense of the coach my job is not based on having to win to retain it. Has to be a tough position to be in.

As hard as he did?
That kid was throwing darts - at his own pace..and was a composed in 9th as he was in 1st... I never once thought ..they need to pull this kid...
its the LAST Game of the World Series...
I'm pretty sure the coach wouldve had a mutiny on his hands in the form of a catcher and infielders if he pulled Abel ... and fans.....and not to mention mom in the stands look salty...

Talking heads need something to ***** about. Nothing wrong in my book riding the hot hand to win it all in the last game of the season. Kid never looked like he was struggling. He was efficient and effective and he has all offseason to rest with the trophy.. Bleep the complainers.

I'm guessing that all over America baseball coaches will be incorporating pop-up drills into practice like never before. I would be. And maybe, using loud music or piped-in noise to practice over-coming distractions on such a play. Those outs have GOT to be made. (And while they're at it, practice catching fly balls in the sun -- there are techniques to do this.)

Sure, "stuff" happens. But better preparation on specific scenarios can improve the odds of a good result. Protocols for priority on pop-ups can definitely be practiced.

Just saying that the impact of making versus botching such a play (winning vs. losing a national championship) has certainly been established for all to see. Either coaches/teams will learn from this and try and prepare for it or sit back and say "well, stuff happens; that's baseball...."

You practice for exactly that situation. Didn't you ever -- as a kid -- say: "here's Little Playa, pitching with the bases loaded in the 9th for all the marbles; gotta have a K here. He goes with the curve... got eem swingin; !!!"

Practice is about making extraordinary situations routine and do-able. It's also about identifying who as players is "clutch" and putting those guys on the field.

What I loved about that popup play was that the 2nd baseman saw that ball go up and the 1st thing he thought was "I'm gonna go get the 27th out to win the CWS!"

What I hated was the right fielder didn't....

Give me guy #1 everytime, and I'll take my chances.

You can go ahead and tap the brakes on the condescension. I have witnessed good coaching of my own son all the way up to the college level, and I have seen specific instances turned into teachable moments. True, that things happen beyond anyone's control, but excellent coaches figure out ways to get their players focused and to limit mental errors and to heighten chances on borderline plays.

so now the coaches (in the College World Series) ...are at fault for not preparing their players...who have been playing the game since they could walk... how to handle the pressure , and focus on a variable situation...in the biggest game of their lives ...with the biggest play of their lives... and not have a blunder moment that Major League Players still make daily ?

c'mon man.

You are totally missing my point in trying so hard to discredit it. My point is not to fault the coach for the players' botching the foul ball play; rather, I'm saying that such a play will indeed create a point of emphasis for other coaches to consider in preparation of their teams at every level. For such a thing to happen in such a vital moment heightens the awareness of it, and I'm predicting that other coaches will react in whatever creative ways they can come up with to try and avoid a similar result. That is all I'm saying.

my point is its already being coached... from little league on up.....
its a fundamental of the game...
they are constantly drilled on fly balls, covering, backing up , running in...all through out their careers....
they watch it every day on the biggest stages....
but even the simplest of plays, get blundered by the VERY BEST this game has ever seen..every night....
if human error could have been coached out of someone..we would NEVER see it in the minor/major...or hell, little league/select ball.
**** happens.

Of course fundamentals are taught at every level.

I'm merely predicting that tricky foul ball plays will be practiced more going forward as a point of emphasis -- as a direct result of this high-profile play. Time will tell if this is true.

And, yes, "stuff" will continue to happen, regardless.

Maybe... except there was nothing tricky about that play to try and teach to avoid that hasnt already been instilled in them over and over and over from a very young age.
It had 3 guys that all couldve got the ball but the age old 'who's got it' mixed with the overzealous team leader rushing in to be a hero blunder happened.
Thats not something that can be coached out...or it wouldve by now.(not just out of them, but the game itself) which is why you still see the very same blunder happen at the major level.

It happened, and it will again as long as theres a super competitive nature in the players.
