"Super" time of year - 06/05/14
The Vanderbilt baseball team is getting set for another crucial series. The Commodores will host Stanford in the Super Regional. The winner advancing to the College World Series in Nebraska.
Pardon the pun. But this is a "super" time of year for Tim Corbin's squad. Today during the media interviews with the Vanderbilt coach and players, last year's Super Regional appearance against Louisville came up. You may recall the Commodores were in a similar position as they are this year. They held home field advantage, only to lose to Louisville.
That was a tough moment for the Black and Gold. But shortstop Vince Conde told me today that it should help his squad this year. The defeat teaching Conde and his teammates a valuable lesson, that home field advantage does not guarantee a Super Regional win.
Conde telling me that Vanderbilt will take things more seriously this time around. If they do, a trip to Omaha is in their near future.
