As a former college baseball player and college baseball coach, the NCAA College World Series is always a “must watch” event. But this year I’ll be watching extra close for 11 specific reasons.

There are currently 11 former NCSA student-athletes who completed the “Road to Omaha” and will compete on college baseball’s highest stage starting this Saturday. It is humbling to think that we at NCSA were able to play a role in their recruiting process and they turned it into an opportunity of a lifetime.

There are role players, middle of the order hitters, Freshman All-Americans, TCU’s all-time leader in games played (241), and 2015 MLB Draft selections on this list.

But not too long ago they were working through the recruiting process like many of you reading this blog. Keep an eye on these student-athletes on ESPN over the next two weeks. They will be living the dream.
