Through Thursday:

Louisville's Logan Taylor hit the College World Series' 16th home run, the most since the event moved to TD Ameritrade Park in 2011.

Taylor's homer against TCU on Thursday night came in the 10th game of the CWS. The previous high at the stadium was 15 homers in 16 games in 2015. Last year, there were 10 in 17 games.

This year has definitely been the best for the HR at TD. They were talking about it on the radio coverage last night. They mentioned how the wind has been blowing in a non traditional direction and what it will be like next year.

Nearly a perfect CWS. Huge crowds, some great games, the ball actually leaving the yard, incredible weather with no delayed games.

Some years I feel exhausted and a little bored by the end, but this year was really a series to remember.

I agree, I went to games on last Tuesday and Friday nights and to the beer garden on Saturday. All 3 nights had amazing weather. Actually I saw quite a few people wearing jackets on Friday night, something you don't see often at the CWS. Glad that Omaha can claim this event every year.

Wasn't it last year at this time, we had some here lamenting that the CWS was about to circle the drain because of decreased attendance for the 2016 sessions, lol..

I guess good weather and better team draws have put a damper on the gloom and doom crowd :yes: ...

Well, they have to have some place to play..

If the Huskers continue down the 4+ losses per season path, perhaps next they'll move into the Husker 2017 football thread :;): ...

The field for the 8th Annual Home Run Derby:

>> Griffin Conine, Duke: Had 13 homers and 56 RBIs this spring.

>> Logan Davidson, Clemson: A switch-hitter who hit 12 homers.

>> Niko Hulsizer, Morehead State: Finished second in the nation in homers with 27.

>> Julian Infante, Vanderbilt: Had 11 homers and 66 RBIs.

>> Tristan Pompey, Kentucky: Had 10 homers this season.

>> Chandler Taylor, Alabama: A freshman, he led his team with 16 homers and 34 RBIs.


I am a bit surprised that Jake Adams, Iowa player who led the nation with 29 homers, isn't playing.

Probably has something to do with his draft selection by the Astro's and they or him not wanting him to participate. Not sure if he has signed or not but as a sixth round pick I bet he does.

The draft took place before the CWS. There was a large number of players that were drafted that played in the CWS.

College World Series' economic impact, national exposure and attendance all knocked it out of the park for Omaha

Image

Omaha businessman Jack Diesing, chairman of College World Series of Omaha Inc., estimated a $70 million economic impact for the 12-day eventHotel room bookings in Douglas County for the first nine days of the series, 71,595 “room nights,” were up 2 percent from 2015, according to the Omaha Convention & Visitors Bureau and data tracker STR Inc.

Figures for 2016 were slightly higher because of overlapping bookings for the Olympic Swim Trials, the bureau said, but the final figures may show an increase from 2016 because of LSU fans arriving to see the final games.

Among those hotel guests are little league teams participating in the annual SlumpBuster youth baseball tournament. Now finishing its 15th year in the Omaha area, the event spans about 16 days. For the third year in a row, more than 500 teams registered from 37 states, and each gets a piece of the nearly 15,000 CWS tickets bought by organizer Triple Crown Sports of Fort Collins, Colorado.

At an average of 12 players and 27 fans and parents per team, spokesman Brandon Hardy figures that SlumpBuster helps bring more than 17,500 outside visitors to the area during the CWS.

That’s more than 16,000 hotel nights at 53 area hotels, he said, since each team stays an average of 3.5 days, buying at local stores and eating at local restaurants.

I definitely think this was the best CWS since the move to TD. Can we just give LSU and auto bid every year than have 7 other qualifiers?? Maybe add a wind machine behind home to keep the homers going.

Other than the rain out of the opening ceremonies, this year's series fired on all cylinders.

While I was disappointed about the opening ceremony rainout, since I was planning on attending, it is fine because it doesn't count towards the total numbers.

I bartend very close to the park during CWS and it was a home run of a year. This is my 4th year working CWS and the teams/fans this year were definitely the best.

LSU fans are amazing, it blew my mind when I found out so many of them flew (or drove) up during the 2nd weekend/even on Monday of Championship week to support their team. Felt terrible for them when LSU got swept though, never seen so many people order Double mixed drinks so fast.

Opening night was a bummer though, but I guess you can't win em all.
