Omaha loves its CWS

Vanderbilt wins College World Series

Wait over for long-suffering Vanderbilt fans

“Who are you with?” “V-U!” Vanderbilt senior Austin Brown shouted with what was left of his voice to the rest of the Commodore faithful who had gathered to celebrate the university’s first baseball national championship.

Hansen: For some north downtown businesses hoping for a financial windfall — like coffee shop — CWS has struck out

Shatel: Collision gives jolt

We may not have home runs, but the College World Series is not lacking for proper blocking technique. That’s baseball. It seemed for only a minute like this was a Vanderbilt-Virginia football game. On second thought, thank goodness this is baseball.
