College Baseball Wrapup

Posted by cuorange on June 28, 2009

Some want to deny it. Others want to pooh-pooh it. But there’s no way around it and no doubt  it exists.  However, you can learn from it.

Once again this year, and for the 7th time in 8 years, the CWS Champ finished in the top 17 in fielding and top 22 in pitching.

Year Team Fielding ERA Batting Avg Slugging
2002 Texas 5 2 99 65
2003 Rice 2 2 41 103
2004 Cal State – Fullerton 17 22 9 56
2005 Texas 3 4 80 74
2006 Oregon State 8 14 85 95
2007 Oregon State 2 11 162 129
2008 Fresno State 52 56 125 102
2009 Louisiana State 16 9 78 34

Texas would have obviously met this criteria if the Horns had won, but it was LSU’s defense in the championship series (only two errors) that vaulted the Tigers into the top 17 and kept the trend in order.

So next year, when your team looks like a champion in March and April, when you think they have what it takes, come back and visit CUOrange and we’ll give you the truth:  Contender or Pretender.
