College World Series 2014 team profile: Vanderbilt Commodores


It’s that time of the year where the sport of Division I College Baseball is set to take the national stage, which means that it’s time for the College World Series.

Eight of the best teams left in college baseball will vie for the national championship in Omaha, Nebraska after a grueling tournament that started with 64 teams.

One of those teams that made it out and will have a shot at the title in Omaha is the Vanderbilt Commodores, and here’s a look at how they were able to get to this point, from the regular season all the way through the Super Regional.

The Commodores went 16-2 in preconference play, then went 17-13 in an up-and-down SEC performance. During one stretch in March and April, they lost four series in five weeks, but the played better down the stretch and still wound up hosting a regional, which they won in three games. Stanford pushed Vandy to three games in super regionals, but the Commodores rode hot bats to 23 runs in their two wins in that series.

The Commodores will start their College World Series journey by taking on the Louisville Cardinals this weekend. How much of a shot do you give this Vandy team to walk away with the title? Let us know your thoughts on the comments below.
