On Wednesday night, the Vanderbilt Commodores capped off what was an amazing 2014 NCAA Baseball Tournament with a win in Game 3 of the College World Series finals over the Virginia Cavaliers, securing them the national championship.
Throughout the season, the rankings were all over the place as the parity in the sport this year was better than ever before. However, with the season now over, it’s time to take a look at one last poll.
Thursday afternoon, less than 24 hours after Vanderbilt captured that championship, USA TODAY released the final standings for the 2014 college baseball season.
The College World Series saw eight of the best teams the sport had to offer at the end of the season, and we saw some amazing finishes toward the end.
But as with all sports, there could only be one champion, and the Commodores earned every ounce of that trophy they raised on Wednesday night, especially with the way they held off a tough Virginia team.
