In the finals!!!

Post by BlueDevilsRule »

Was worth the trip to Norwich for Saturday's game. After giving up 4 runs in the bottom of the first, the Blue Devils scored 5 runs in the top of the 2nd on their way to a 10-4 victory. Wagner has just knocked off Bryant. Hoping for a 22 inning game between Sacred Heart and Wagner tonight (use up all their pitchers). GO BLUE DEVILS!!!

As a double elimination tournament Central has to win one game tomorrow and their opponent (SHU/Wagner) needs to win two games.
Wagner is leading SHU 3 to 2 in the top of the 11th. It would be nice if they went 18 or so innings and maybe the winner completely exhausts their pitching staff. But unless SHU can tie it iooks like it is going to be Wagner vs CCSU tomorrow.

Well now the tables have turned!
SHU ties it in the bottom of the 11th. I hope the Central players are at their hotel getting plenty of rest.

I went to the game today, a nice 6-3 victory. It was a very exciting game. Central had a lead most of the way but SHU kept fighting back. Central turned over a number of double plays which killed several SHU rallies.
Congratulations to CCSU Baseball!

There was no live scoring on ESPN or the NEC site so I literally found out on Facebook. Good job by our guys, great season! Let's make some noise in the NCAA's!

There was nothing on FOX 61 or WFSB either from what I saw...but I shouldn't be surprised.

On one of their newscasts (early evening?), the "sports guy" showed a graphic of the score and mentioned it. That was it. later that night, he read a story about the Uconn team.
On Monday, the New Britain Herald published a pretty good story. If you don't get that paper, it's on-line:http://www.newbritainherald.com/

Thx DG. I knew it had to be at least mentioned by someone.

New Channel 8 was there yesterday. They had video and interviews. All the rest I can't stand when it comes to CCSU over UConn. ESPECIALLY Channel 4. Completely stopped watching them and their bias.

Good. WTNH seems to cover CCSU better than the others. I should watch them more.

Also, articles in the New London Day and Hartford Courant about the Norwich-area connections.

Both articles have a great line about how all Central alumni are proud when one of the Blue Devil teams do well.
Central’s 6-3 win over Sacred Heart resulted in a jubilant pile of humanity near the mound, a water bucket dousing of coach Charlie Hickey, photos, photos galore and the overwhelming sense that there is no more loyal lot of alumni than the Central guys.
Whether it's living under the shade of UConn or whatever, when the Blue Devils achieve something substantial athletically, the school enjoys a big burst of happy. Few alumni are prouder than Central alumni.
