College World Series
The CWS is the post-season tournament that decides college baseball's national champion. The College World Series takes place over two weeks in June. The CWS features the best teams in college baseball playing in a double-elimination tournament which eventually whittles the field down to the final two teams. Those two winning teams from each bracket advance to play in a best of three CWS Championship Series. The winner of the Championship series is the National Champion of College Baseball.
The College World Series was first played way back in 1947. In 1950, the event moved to Omaha, Nebraska where it has been held every since. The best players and teams have all finished their seasons at the CWS, many of them as champions of college baseball. USC, Texas, LSU and Arizona State have capture more CWS championships than any other teams in NCAA baseball. The Longhorns are lapping the field when it comes to CWS appearances as they have over three dozen visits to Omaha - which is a dozen plus more than the next closest school.
